A Chapter Closes
Posted by Pete Bouchard
After running as much as 5 degrees above normal for the month of October, the tables are turning. The arrival of this afternoon's cool front signaled an end of the above normal temperatures and the dawning of a new era of chill.
At one point this afternoon the temperature contrast was over 20 degrees across the Commonwealth!
Now that the chill is setting in, it's time to wipe out gardens, mosquitos and throw on the heat and the extra blankets. Highs in the coming days will only manage mid 50s and the low temperatures will fall to freezing or below. Multiple frosts/freezes are likely in the suburbs, while we teeter near frost territory in the hub and surrounding communities. (Best chance for a frost here is Fri or Sat AM).
A band of showers scooting through tomorrow will glance Southeast Mass. We'll be right on the edge in Greater Boston and Worcester, so our wet weather will be brief and spotty.
Showers will be on the DECREASE by gametime, but the air will remain chilly. Expect mid 40s tomorrow night and Thursday night. Caveat Thursday is the wind, which will make it feel like 30s! Dress for that, NOT the 40s.
Almost time to play ball!
