    Fall air has arrived in New England –- at least the first installment. With a continued northeast and northerly wind this weekend, each day will be a bit cooler than the one previous until we clear the weekend.

    In fact, while the drier, less humid air will squash out even leftover Friday sprinkles to deliver a dry weekend, the air will also be cool enough to hold daytime highs. Those highs are expected to be around 70 on Saturday with 60s in the hills, and widespread 60s on Sunday.

    You can imagine overnight lows will get a bit chilly for some of us. Temperatures are expected to be between the 40s and 50s, north to south on Friday night, but some frost is possible Saturday night in the valleys of far Northern New England!

    The nice part about cool, Canadian air is it’s also dry air, which will hold rain at bay until Monday.

    Early next week is when rain is likely to develop during the morning and last periodically throughout the day. Some showers will linger into Tuesday, but the rain and showers mark an attempt by warmer air to return to the region.

    Temperatures are expected to rebound to around 80 degrees for the middle and end of next week.

    Although the exclusive Early Warning Weather 10-day forecast doesn’t show any direct impacts from Hurricane Florence at this time, we’ll be watching her for the end of next week and at least some big waves seem probable no matter the track.
