THIS EVENING & TONIGHT…

After a beautiful day with sunshine highs around 80 degrees, we can expect increasing cloudiness tonight.  Patchy fog may form.  Temperatures will fall back through the 70s then into the 60s. Overnight lows will range from 55-65.

THE WEEK AHEAD…

A disturbance will move through Southern New England tomorrow, and that will bring a chance for showers (perhaps a rumble of thunder). With limited sunshine, highs will be in the 70s. The clouds will clear away tomorrow night, as drier cooler air overspreads the state from north to south. Temperatures will dip to near 50 by dawn.

High pressure will set up shop in the Northeast for the rest of the week, and that means we’ll enjoy a lengthy stretch of gorgeous weather! Tuesday and Wednesday will be mostly sunny. Both days will be a little cooler than normal. Highs Tuesday will be in the lower 70s. Highs will be closer to 70 degrees on Wednesday. The nights will be clear and chilly with lows in the 40s and lower 50s.

Thursday and Friday will be mostly sunny and warmer. After a cool morning with lows in the 40s, temperatures are expected to rise well into the 70s Thursday afternoon. By Friday afternoon, we’ll have a good shot at 80 degrees!

THE LAST WEEKEND OF SUMMER…

The warming trend will peak next weekend! Saturday should be mostly sunny with highs in the low and middle 80s. Sunday should be partly to mostly sunny and quite warm with highs in the mid to upper 80s! It is the last weekend of the summer season since autumn will officially begin on Monday, September 23rd with the equinox occurring at 3:50 in the morning.

THE TROPICS…

Humberto is expected to become a hurricane tonight. As of late this afternoon, Humberto had 70 mph maximum sustained winds and was centered about 170 miles east-northeast of Cape Canaveral, Florida. Humberto will start moving toward the east (away from the United States) and the center could pass near or just to the north of Bermuda by Wednesday night. Humberto is expected to pass well to the east of New England next weekend.

It looks like two trees fell on Rainbow Road in Windsor, one of them on a car. I haven’t heard of any injuries. The car looks to be totaled.
