Strong Backdoor Cold Front To End Fall Warmth Today

Hello everyone!

Fall break is now over, and I’m back at home base in Ithaca, meaning that updates will resume as per usual. Likewise, Mother Nature is also set to cease pretending like it’s summer vacation today, with a backdoor cold front bringing an end to unusually warm fall temps. Our airmass this morning is warm and muggy across the area, with dew points in the 60’s more typical of July than October.

By sunset, most of Maine will be dropping through the 50’s into the 40’s as breezy NE winds kick in. However, before that, temps will rise into the low to mid 80’s for most of SW ME and NH. Along the front, showers and storms are possible this afternoon/evening as those warm temps and muggy air will actually lead to some instability. Those showers/storms will wane in intensity after sunset.
