FEELING LIKE FALL
It was a cold start to the first official full day of Fall. Wake up temperatures ranged mainly in the 40s and 50s. Boston hasn't seen temperatures this cold since early June!
Sunday will still manage to warm into the upper 60s and lower 70s. Light winds will allow a sea breeze to develop. That will keep the coast on the cooler side of the range. More high clouds will dull the sun, especially south of the Mass Pike. North of the Pike it will run mostly sunny. Enjoy!
A moisture starved back door cold front will move through the area overnight and into early Monday. This will allow for winds to turn out of the northeast and be quite gusty. Gusts to 20-30 mph are possible and this wind will aid cooler weather into the area for Monday. After another cool morning in the 40s, high will probably get stuck in the upper 50s or lower 60s due to those onshore winds! I expect afternoon temperatures to run about 10 degrees below normal! It surely will feel like fall! There will be a better bet of low clouds on Monday, especially near the coast, but also some sunny breaks.
The pattern looks to turn unsettled again by midday Tuesday as a warm front approaches the area. A soaking/heavy rain Is possible with some areas picking up 1-3”. There may be some poor drainage/typical nuisance street flooding at times. The threat of flash flooding will remain low, as these rainfall totals will be over a period of days. Though Tuesday and Wednesday look like good bets on scattered downpours, it's less certain whether showers will linger late week. will jump back into the mid to upper 70s by Wednesday as well as turn more humid. Seasonable conditions return later in the week.
