Signs of fall are quickly arriving on the South Shore, with cooler nights and earlier sunsets taking over.
Lots of Sunshine
Overall, this week offers lots of late summer sunshine.
Wednesday will be bright and sunny, with high temperatures near 80 degrees.
Clouds will increase Wednesday night as a cold front approaches, and that front will very slowly work through the area on Thursday, leaving us with cloudy skies and periods of rain. Temperatures during the day will be in the 70s.
That's really the only speed bump, in an otherwise nice stretch, however.
Early morning clouds on Friday will depart as the front does the same, allowing sunshine to return. High temperatures will be in the 70s.
Saturday and Sunday also look bright at this point, with temperatures ranging from 75-80 during the day.
Signs of Fall
We're creeping closer to Autumn, and our overnight temperatures will feel like it. While still somewhat warm during the day, we'll continue to drop into the upper 50s and low 60s overnight, leaving us with that crisp feel both in the evening and as the kids head out to the bus stop in the morning.
Sunset times are also quickly getting earlier. Our last 7 PM sunset of the season is this Saturday.
Watching the Tropics
After heavy rain from Fred, Henri, and Ida, we finally get a chance to catch our breath in terms of tropical activity.
Right now there is just one active storm, Larry. That hurricane is staying way out over the ocean, but in the coming days some big waves from the storm will arrive at the coastline. Keep that in mind in case you're enjoying some late season beach days!
