A big time chill is headed our way this weekend. Friday we will see temperatures just above normal. Just incase you are wondering, our normal high this time of the year is 63 F. Get this, our normal low for the shoreline communities is 46, but as you head away from the water, the average low gets much lower at 41 F. But this weekend, with a big dip in the jet-stream, we are talking well below average temperatures. It will all start Saturday morning, most of us will wake up with temperatures a little below normal. Shoreline temperature is forecast to be 43 F, inland 39 F. Saturday afternoon will not get much better. Highs on Saturday will be 54-56 F. Sunday will start much cooler with temperatures likely in the 30s throughout the state. 32 F for inland, 35 F for shoreline. As we go into the afternoon on Sunday, we will likely me stuck in the 40s. Monday morning is forecast to be the coldest of the next few days with lows inland in the upper 20s and even the shoreline in the low 30s. I put a graphic below that shows the temperature trend over the next few days. It is likely that much of us will wake up Monday morning with a frost/freeze. This means the growing season will likely end across the state. For more information on that, click here. If you are headed up north for fall foliage, it might snow in northern New England. Here’s the forecast.
