Becoming a Familiar Pattern: Mild to Warm and Back to Mild

BLOG1Although temperatures have been swinging from day-to-day here in New England, normal highs for the date are around 70 degrees – so even our cooler days are near or slightly milder than we normally should be!  Our exclusive, First Alert 10-day forecast shows this pattern continuing…at least for the next 9 of 10 days, with more substantial cooling possible by the end of next week.  For now, ample sunshine and a light wind is making for a delightful fall day regionwide with light sea breezes along our beaches and widespread highs of 70 to 75.  The next weather system capable of producing showers is a cold front, still well off to our west in the Central Great Lakes and unlikely to arrive until Thursday afternoon and evening, from northwest to southeast across New England, meaning a southwest wind will have the opportunity to carry in just a bit more warmth to New England on Thursday, bumping temperatures to around 80 degrees.  The oscillating temperature pattern of warm to not-quite-as-warm continues for several days, as the passing cold front Thursday evening drags scattered showers across New England and opens the door to Friday air that will be very similar to our Wednesday: sunny and highs 70 to 75 with a light wind.  Yet again, warmth will build Saturday with highs in the 80s ahead of another cold front with scattered showers Saturday late day and night, then yet another shot of pleasant, dry fall air for Sunday.  The cycle repeats again early next week, with building warmth by midweek before a more significant change shows up at the end of the 10-day forecast: a more powerful cold front at the end of next week may leave high temperatures next Friday struggling to get out of the lower to middle 60s.
