Frost Widespread Tonight

Sleeping with the windows open last night was quite the mistake. Lows got very cold last night in southern New England and many parts of western and northern New England dropped down to frosty levels early this morning, which will really accelerate the fall foliage season, really early this season. We have two more very cold to frosty mornings ahead before we really start to heat up once again. First today, temperatures will top out between 60-65 degrees with abundant sunshine, maybe a few afternoon clouds. Once late afternoon comes, temperatures will really start to tumble, down into the mid 50's for the Red Sox in Boston tonight, and low 50's for the fans at Gillette. Temperatures by the end of the Sox game will likely be around 50, but the end of the Pats game will really feel like fall, in the mid and upper 40's. Temperatures will really fall at Gillette because Foxboro is a notorious place to cool quickly.

One more cool day like that on Tuesday and then we are off to the races for warmth latern next week. Wednesday will be a bit milder with temperatures around 70, after morning lows in the low 40's. We warm up more significantly on Thursday with high temperatures in the low to mid 80's. The warm temperatures will continue through the weekend with highs each day in the 75-85 degree range, coolest at the shore, warmest inland.

Here is a map for tonight's frost and freeze potential. As you can see, places around the Boston-Providence-Worcester area does not really have to worry about tonight for frost and freezes. However, a notorious place for frost around here will be the airport at Norwood and any cranberry bogs and Carver, MA is a notorious cold spot.

Much further west is where you will run into widespread frost and freezes. Western CT, MA and much of Vermont, and southern New Hampshire will experience temperatures in the low to mid 30's. South-central Vermont will even experience Freezing conditions with temperatures likely in the 28-32 degree range for several hours at a time. That is where there is a *Freeze Warning at the current time. The areas in the darker blue are under a *Frost Advisory. Tuesday morning we will do this all over again and perhaps closer to home, we'll see.
Enjoy the nice stretch we are getting.
