It’s gray outside. There are wet leaves on my deck. Sad. Wasn’t it summer about 20 minutes ago?
A cold front is coming through as I type. It will clear the skies this afternoon. They’ll stay clear tonight.
The growing season ends tonight.
The 12Z MOS runs are in. The models put most of inland Connecticut in the 20°s overnight. At the immediate shore the temperature will be within a degree or two of 32°. Freeze Warnings are in effect statewide.
I have never seen so much eagerness to get a clear skies forecast out! We don’t get to make a forecast this much of a slam dunk very often. I hope my cohorts and I weren’t too eager to demonstrate our skill.
It’s still October. There will be more mild weather, probably by the middle of next week. Tonight we get a reminder winter is on the way.
