September 28: Two record highs established in southern New England today: Windsor Locks (BDL) at 87 and Providence (PVD) at 86.

September 28: Another day of summer-like warmth is ahead, which will challenge record highs at some locations.

The warmth won't last long, however, as a cold front drops south across New England Monday. Northeast winds behind the front will bring cooler weather Monday afternoon through mid week.

September 27: Here are a few sunset photos taken from webcams in southern New England this evening. Enjoy!
September 27: It's Time To Play"Where's the Cold Air????"

The map below is a national temperature map from 7 pm this evening. Much of the country is enjoying early fall warmth, and it's hard to find where the cold air is lurking!

You have to go to Montana and adjacent parts of Canada to find anything remotely close, but even there it's in the 40s and 50s!

From looking at our posts earlier today, it seems like many of you are enjoying this round of warm weather!
September 27: We are having a spell of warm weather this weekend. How warm does it compare to the past? Here are the high temperature records for our four climate sites for Today, Sunday, and (as a bonus) Monday.
September 27: It's a great day to be on the water in Newport, RI! These summer like temperatures will stick around for the weekend and maybe into Monday. Enjoy!
September 27: 29 years ago today (1985), Hurricane Gloria reaches Connecticut after crossing Long Island, NY.

Some locations in New England reported sustained wind gusts near 100 mph, with wind gusts over 100 mph.

Does anyone have any memories/stories from Gloria?
September 27: The calendar may say it's fall, but the weather in southern New England will feel more like summer this weekend. Here's a look at high temperatures today and Sunday.

September 26: Driving overnight or early Saturday morning? Be alert for patchy dense fog with low visibility in spots! http://ow.ly/C0FEr
September 26: It's going to be a beautiful weekend!

Here's a look at the high temperatures, and with low humidity too!
September 26: So there continues to be a lot of discussion regarding the dry September for some, and the not so dry for others.

Here is a visualization of where we stand for the "Big 4" Climate sites in Southern New England, in comparison to the driest 10 Septembers on record.

Note that there is still some time left to go, and even though the weekend will be dry, a possibility for showers exists by Tuesday, so these may be revisited.
September 26: Available on the 25th of October and enjoy talking shop about weather?

The Southern New England Weather Conference is for you! There are still seats available, but they will go quickly.

September 26: Morning satellite shows clearing skies across much of the region! This trend continues.

Note also the T-storms offshore and fog snaking through the CT River Valley.
September 26: Here is our latest thinking on the showers this morning.

September 25: A few showers overnight across mainly CT/RI and southeast MA, clearing during the morning.

Overnight lows dip back into the 40s and 50s.
September 25: These plume diagrams show the precipitation accumulations through the month of September for 2014 as well as normal and driest years for the four climate sites in Southern New England.

(Note the black dots represent the missing days yet to come)
September 25: Being Weather Ready is important. We continue to outreach about preparedness across Southern New England.

Today we are at the Federal Reserve in Boston for their "What if" Fair. Here's the setup:
September 25: Precipitation has been slow to move inland of the south coast. One of the culprits is a layer of very dry air above the surface, which could be seen on the weather balloon sounding this morning:
September 25: Here's the latest forecast for today. Still could see some rainfall, mainly south of the Mass Pike.
September 24: Temperatures overnight will not be as cool as they have been the past few nights. This is thanks to the cloud shield overhead keeping the overnight temps from radiating out.
September 24: Free this Saturday? The Brockton Emergency Management Agency will be hosting a SKYWARN training session at 10:00am at the Brockton Public Library. For more details check out the event below.

Curious on what SKYWARN is, check out this webpage: http://www.weather.gov/box/skywarnprogram
September 24: Rain will move up from the south beginning tomorrow morning. The biggest question is how far north will the rain make it.

You can see the difference between some of the model guidance on where the heaviest rainfall will occur. While uncertainty remains, our highest confidence in a soaking rainfall is near the South Coast.
September 24: High level clouds will continue to move northward and impact Southern New England. Anticipate hazy sunshine or mostly cloudy conditions by this afternoon. Any chance of precipitation will hold off until tomorrow thanks to high pressure over the region.
September 24: Another fairly typical day for late September across southern New England. Rainfall becoming an increasing likelihood across portions of our region late tonight into Thursday.
