One Day Drop
Posted by Pete Bouchard
Good shot of cold coming down from Northern New England. Don't know if you caught it on the social media websites this morning, but here's a shot of the Mt. Washington Auto Road:
Yeah, it was that cold on the ol' rockpile. Some of that chill is pouring in now. Our temps will continue to crumble through the night, and by morning, the freeze is on. Suburbs will see their first hard freeze of the season - that means temps in the 20s! This will wipe out the gardens (if left unprotected), the pollen, the mosquitoes and put the lawn on notice.
However, now that we've exhausted the subject of chilly temps, it's time to move on...to Indian Summer. That's right. The first warmup of 70 or better after the first freeze - and the autumnal equinox - constitutes the Indian summer. (Hey, we have rules here.)
This shot of cold is indeed a one shot deal. I'm expecting the warmup process to start as early as Saturday night and finish on Monday. Highs will leap to the 60s Sunday and around 70 on Monday! This is certainly within reason too, considering our record high temps this time of year have peaked in the upper 80s.
Nothing like that coming, but the cold will be on hold next week. Highs linger in the 60s right through Thursday.
Enjoy the weekend.
