Intermission

The first ten days of September have been exceptionally nice with mostly sunny skies and temperatures near normal. September always seems to shake out this way for a good chunk of the month. It’s our short intermission from the otherwise variable weather we typically experience here in New England.

A very persistent area of high pressure has blocked storms to our west from approaching us. Today, our grip on the nice weather slides away as a tenacious storm that has been spinning off the coast of the Carolinas for a few days slowly sneaks up on us. Although the storm itself isn’t that powerful, winds will be quite stiff and showers will keep the ground wet through Saturday afternoon. With the wind coming off the ocean, temperatures will be stuck in the low- to mid-60s. You may want to save any outdoor plans for Sunday as we begin another stretch of mostly sunny weather that should last most of next week.
