Cool & Damp
Cooler air has arrived and sticks around for several days. It finally feels like September! Drizzle and spotty light rain is mainly a morning to early afternoon feature and while comforting to see it won't add up to anything meaningful. Clouds decrease towards this evening with partial clearing overnight. Thursday is sunny, yet equally cool. Temperatures moderate slowly through the weekend with ample sunshine.

This is the forecast we've been waiting for! REAL, fall-like air. Personally, the excitement is a little dampened by the lack of rainfall and essentially no rain in sight.
High pressure over New England has wedged down the eastern slopes of the Appalachians. Clouds arrived last night followed by mist and drizzle. The dampness continues through the morning and into the early afternoon before we "dry out". Afternoon temperatures are kept below average and at least 15-degrees cooler than yesterday.
The wedge holds through Friday keeping it relatively cool, especially in the mornings. Tomorrow is stunning, seasonably cool though bright and sunny. Dry weather persists through the weekend with a gradual warming trend.
A front tries to get in here late Monday or next Tuesday, but rainfall is lacking or non-existent so I have excluded from the forecast for now.
