Typical Fall Weather

As we enter the second week of classes, we will experience variable weather typical of fall in New England. After a rainy and cool Friday and Saturday this past weekend, the last two days have been sunny and warm. This weather will continue today as we will enjoy a mostly sunny day with pleasant temperatures in the low 70s°F.

However, this will be our last day of warmth for the next few days as a cold frontal passage Tuesday night will bring noticeably cooler temperatures on Wednesday. We should remain mostly rain-free, with only a slight chance of light rain showers late tonight into tomorrow morning. High pressure will again move in on Wednesday, keeping us dry until the next storm system (currently in the lower Mississippi Valley) moves into our region by Friday. This low pressure system will bring rain showers that could be heavy at times, especially Friday afternoon and evening. So, enjoy the warm sunny weather today, as the rest of the week will be cooler, but should remain dry until Friday.
