Well, if this is how Fall is going to be...I guess I can get used to it! Really nice comfortable weather for the next several day. Fall really is an amazing time for New England. Luckily, we have a whole season to enjoy before we get to the winter. A weak front is pushing off the coast Thursday, with a wind shift to the NE. Building high pressure from Canada will help to make for plenty of sunshine with highs slightly cooler than Wednesday, but still averaging above the norm. Highs inland will be in the Lwr-mid 70's with mostly sunny skies. Meanwhile, at the coast onshore winds will keep temps near 70.
It is a quiet weather regime through the weekend with this high slowly coming down from Canada Friday. The high will be directly over us Saturday. The high will begin to weaken and pull off the coast Sunday. All the while we are looking at sunshine, fair weather clouds, light onshore breezes and high in the 60's to near 70 Friday, Saturday and Sunday. By Sunday a few areas inland may try to pop into the Lwr 70's.
To our south this weekend, there will be a stationary low churning off the Carolinas and the mid-Atlantic. It will come with gusty winds, building surf, and areas of rain. The high over us will protect us from this inclement weather, but I would expect a building swell to develop at our coast as we get to Sunday and Monday. We are looking dry and pleasant right into the middle of next week with temperatures warming into the 70's nearing 80 by Wednesday. In fact, signs are pointing to a very mild start to October...and a pattern which could last for the rest of the month with temperatures averaging above normal. It is some really nice weather, but also extremely dry as well. Very little chances of any sort of significant rain in the next 2 weeks. Enjoy!
