A backdoor cold front has brought an end to the heat and humidity, at least for the next several days. Highs today will only rise into the low to perhaps mid 60’s as a breezy NE wind carries cold air in off the ocean. What’s even better is that dew points will drop into the upper 40’s/lower 50’s! How very Octoberish! In terms of precipitation, plenty is expected over the next 24 hours as remnants of Great Lakes thunderstorm complexes move overhead. As they encounter the stable marine airmass, they will weaken into showers which will go on and off throughout the day. As the front plows SW through MA/CT this afternoon, precipitation will gradually diminish over parts of our area with NE sections near Augusta potentially seeing a break or two of sun by this evening. A total of around an inch of rain is expected for most of the area but the path of individual heavier pockets will be the final determiner of exactly how much rain falls at any given location.
More refreshing weather is on tap for tomorrow, this time with sunnier skies!
