After a puff of clouds and sprinkles with renewed cool air on a northeast wind arrived Wednesday morning, a clearing has taken hold as dry air muscles back into place here in New England.
This means we’re back on track for dry and sunny weather for days to come – with the coolest of the air today as highs will be held at 60 to 65 degrees.
A shifting wind and moderating air in the coming days will allow sunshine to boost our temperatures each day, but before that happens we have a chilly – and for some, frosty – night to get through Wednesday night.
Frost advisories and freeze warnings have been issued for central and northern New England, respectively, with some frost as far south as the deepest valleys of both western Massachusetts and even a deep, sheltered valley of northern Worcester County.
After that, we’re frost free and feeling more like summer by the weekend, when high temperatures reach 80 degrees or warmer, persisting into the start of astronomical autumn on Monday.
Next week looks pretty good with two disturbances we’ll be talking more about as we get closer. Right now, the highest chance of scattered showers appears to be Monday night and Wednesday night in our exclusive First Alert 10-day forecast.
