After that ruckus last night, the peaceful, easy feeling returned this afternoon. It was a spectacular finish to a rough storm.
That front is still sitting offshore, however, and I'm wary of its plume of clouds. Don't want to overpromise sun in the coming days...so I won't. These high (and by Friday low) clouds are tricky to forecast, especially since they'll drift in from the east. (Typically our weather systems move from west to east, not east to west.)
In any event, the sensible weather changes will be evident by morning. We're waking to a cooler mornings and a nip of frost in Northern New England:
Not out of the ordinary for this time of year. In fact, it's timely and appropriate. It will also invigorate the fall foliage across the mountains of Northern New England. Unbeknownst to some, the cold actually brings out the best color in the foliage. Without it, you'd get what we had last year: dull, dead leaves.
Anyway, I don't see a frost anytime soon for Southern New England. In fact, out temps will moderate by the weekend as we head for low 70s.
Longer range shows another cooldown by Monday, then another mini warmup by the middle of next week. No big storms in sight.
