    It's a perfect fall day across New England. Temperatures started off cold this Saturday morning.

    Today concluded growing season except for the coastal counties in southern New England. What does that mean? There won’t be any more frost advisories or freeze warnings issued until Spring 2020 when climatologically our growing season begins again.

    We are looking better and better when it comes to the threat of EEE, but we still need to wait a few more weeks until we are comfortably out of the woods.

    Nestor made landfall in Florida. It will continue to move northeast and out into the open Atlantic Ocean. It was looking like we would see some impacts from Nestor. While that possibility still exists, the severity of the impacts looks minimal. Clouds will increase throughout the day Sunday, there could be a few showers along the south coast Sunday night. Monday morning, the system will quickly exit the region.

    Showers and downpours will return with a strong cold front moving through Tuesday into Wednesday. We aren’t expecting a ton of rain, but it should help our abnormally dry conditions. Thursday looks to be the pick of the week.

    Next weekend is looking unsettled. We could be talking about another coastal storm. It isn’t looking like a particularly strong system, but we are nearing astronomically high tides at the end of the month. Any persistent, strong onshore wind may cause coast flooding. Stay tuned.
