Autumn and spring are both known for changeable weather in New England, and our transition to fall won’t be an exception this week.
A burst of cool air responsible for morning low temperatures around 20 degrees in Northern Maine Monday has been moving southwest, prompting clouds with sprinkles in some of Southern New England. However, most of us will eventually find breaks of sun as the day wears on.
Nonetheless, a northeast wind gusting over 30 mph combines with high temperatures only near 60 to create a brisk fall feeling for one and all.
With a period of clearing overnight, temperatures will tumble into the 40s – 30s in Northern New England – until new clouds move in predawn Tuesday ahead of our next weather system.
As the next approaching storm drives warm air toward New England, the collision with our existing cool air will mean developing rain from west to east Tuesday early to late morning, respectively, with embedded afternoon downpours.
By Tuesday night, milder and more humid air will be in place, leading to a day near 80 degrees Wednesday. You can expect scattered morning showers and afternoon thunder with a cold front that brings a quick end to the exceptional warmth.
Another disturbance may deliver Thursday night showers before what appears to be a good weekend ahead, and a persistent early fall feeling in our exclusive Early Warning Weather 10-day forecast.
