    By now, we've become accustomed to seeing cool fronts cross the Great Lakes with a bunch of rain, and then run out of gas as they cross through New England.

    Today's front is no exception. Although we may be able to put together a couple of hours of rain in Northern New England, this looks like a drizzle maker at best in Southern New England.

    Behind it, we're already planning for a chilly shot of air. Another frosty start is anticipated areawide on Saturday morning.

    The afternoon turn around isn't all that impressive either - highs in the upper 50s are all the mid-October sun can muster.

    In fact, the Friday/Saturday forecast represents a seasonal turning point. With the sun angle lowering and the effective warming from the golden orb waning, we are having a hard time making a comeback from the cold mornings.

    Just last month, a cool airmass of this sort could easily have warmed back into 60s. Instead, we'll have to wait until a warmer airmass arrives on Sunday to hit those values.
