Cooler Temps, Incoming Rain



    Today: Sunshine & fair weather clouds. Feel of fall, 60s to low 70s. Diminishing wind from the northeast. Overnight: Big bright Harvest Moon. Chilly, 40s & 50s south, 30s & 40s north. Friday: Sunny, high in the 70s. (Published Thursday, Sept. 15, 2016)

    The cold front with gusty downpours Wednesday afternoon has pushed out to sea leaving behind the true feel of the fall.

    High pressure from Canada is bringing us fair skies for a couple of days with temperature slowly moderating from chilly Thursday morning in the 30s, to near 70 Thursday afternoon and then in the 70s Friday.

    Sunshine in 'fair-weather clouds' through sunset, then a beautiful big bright harvest moon in the sky Thursday night.

    Low temperatures by morning could be cold enough for light frost in parts of northern New England where lows are in the 30s and 40s, to 40s and 50s in southern New England.

    Sunny Friday with high temperature in the 70s.

    A cool start again on Saturday with low in the 40s and 50s. Saturday features a mixture of sun and clouds, high temperature in the 70s to near 80.

    Wind is fairly late for the next couple of days, but will pick up from the southwest to 15-20 mph Saturday afternoon.

    The next front from Canada arrives Saturday night and Sunday.

    A period of rain is likely for most of New England beginning in western and northern areas Saturday night, then spreading south and east during the day Sunday, perhaps lingering into Monday.

    Sunday does look like a damp day especially in southern and central New England, with temperature in the low 70s.

    Rainfall amounts to one inch are possible in the drought stricken area.

    Tropical storm Julia has weakened to a tropical depression off of South Carolina, but a little of its moisture may merge with the front as slows just south of New England Sunday night and Monday.

    That may keep the rain going from Connecticut to Cape Cod during the day Monday, otherwise drying and seasonable early next week.
