Good evening! Happy hump day!
Enjoying that sunshine? Great! There’s more where that came from with high pressure ridging still solidly in control over the Northeast. But, with the quiet weather, there’s still plenty to dissect including the coldest temps of the season so far on the way Thursday morning, followed by a big warm-up to around 80 degrees over the weekend. Let’s break it down.
Tonight, temps nosedive under a clear sky, dropping into the 30s to around 40 degrees in broad valleys, with some upper 20s sneaking in throughout the Adirondacks and Essex county, Vermont in particularly. This has prompted another round of Frost Advisories and a Freeze Warning, too. Any sensitive plants you covered or brought in last, you’ll need to get ahead of that again tonight. It’s a good idea, too, to unhook any outdoor plumbing, such as garden hoses.
We’ll rebound tomorrow, once that dense fog lifts, to the low and mid 70s, with even warmer weather to follow. The temp hits the upper 70s Friday afternoon, and low 80s through broad valleys Saturday and Sunday. Each day brings plenty of sun. At night, temps fall into the upper 40s to around 60 degrees.
Appropriately, our next cold front swings through on the first day of Fall. Expect rain on Monday, with highs returning to the 60s Tuesday.
Have a great night! Stay warm!
