Discussion

A strong cold front will cross the region today sparking some shower and thunderstorm activity and it will usher in sharply colder air overnight with low temperatures reaching the 40’s in many spots. Large and sprawling Canadian high pressure will take control of our weather by tomorrow and we are in store for several consecutive crisp, cool, fall-like days. Elsewhere, Tropical Storm Maria continues to move away from the east coast and the rest of the tropical scene is quiet for now.
