Coldest Night in Months Great Weather Continues Summer Weekend Ahead
You probably have to go back to early June to find a night as cool as this. In fact we have frost and freeze warnings up for much of Northern New England where lows in many areas will break below the 30 degree mark! We won’t be that cold but it will be cool enough with many areas here dropping into the 40s with only the warmest urban areas staying above the 50 degree mark by morning. This is how we get very cold around here with a high to the northeast and a north northeast wind blowing down the coast.
The clouds along the coast that were caused by an upper trough moving south have now thinned out and the satellite shows mostly clear skies from Maine to Maryland. Hurricane Humberto is actually helping to drag that chilly Canadian air southward. Windows open might mean having a blanket close by tonight.
Radars are quiet and are not an issue here through Sunday. Thursday will be mostly sunny with highs in the cool upper 60s and lower 70s. Then as winds turn more west and southwest on Friday we are going to begin a warm up The high to the north drops down to Virginia and then off the Mid Atlantic coast.
Under mostly sunny skies, Friday’s highs will reach the mid to upper 70s. Then it is on to the last weekend of the summer which will feel like a warm summer day but not necessarily a hot summer day. We will have sunshine for both Saturday and Sunday with highs both days in the low to mid 80s. It will be a good weekend for the beaches though the surf may still be a bit rough on Saturday thanks to Hurricane Humberto which will be long gone to the northeast.
Monday could bring the first chance for showers in well over a week as a trough approaches on Monday and an cold front arrives Monday night. Even if we get showers they don’t appear to amount to much. Dry weather follows behind these systems for the first days of Autumn which arrives Monday.
