Autumn-like weather becoming calmer and warmer this week

Stiff winds and cool temperatures poured into New England this weekend, behind a strong cold front which passed through Saturday evening. Hence a deep trough, located in the mid and upper levels of the atmosphere, has overtaken our recent weather. The trough’s northerly winds, out of Canada, have brought much cooler and drier air. These winds are occurring ahead of a surface high pressure approaching our region.

Once the high pressure arrives by mid-week, winds will diminish and temperatures will rise. The high pressure should also slow down and broaden, giving tranquil conditions for most of this week and keeping Tropical Storm Leslie out in the Atlantic. Temperatures should rebound into the low 80s°F (26-28°C) by Thursday and Friday.
