Autumn Leaves Are Falling
Autumn Leaves Are Falling
After a night with clouds and slightly higher dew points, the temperatures started this morning a good 5 to 10 degrees higher than yesterday. We have sunshine through most of the area based on the satellite loop which doesn’t show much. We should see highs in the the mid to upper 60s this afternoon The loop also shows the next cold front approaching and this will be moving through later on Thursday with not much diffiuclty other than clouds and maybe a shower well north and west of the coast. Otherwise Thursday it is a mix of sun and clouds with highs in the low to mid 70s.
There really isn’t too much happening to speak of other than Hurricane Nicole which will hit Bermuda late tonight and early Thursday as at least a category 2 hurricane. Friday we see the next dry air mass build into the northeast which will mean sunny and rather cool mid October temperatures right through the weekend.
Highs will be in the low to mid 60s at best all three days..some areas away from the coast Friday might have a tough time getting out of the 50s for highs. Autumn leaves are falling and this weekend will be great for fall foliage viewing especially as you head north and west of coastal areas.
