A strong cold front pushes east through New England Saturday evening, helping to create a line of thunderstorms. As the front moves into the Atlantic, drier and more tranquil weather will replace the unusual September heat.

The thunderstorms will put an end to the recent heat and humidity as cooler air move into the region by morning.

Sunday will be drier and cooler with a blend of cloud and sunshine and high temperatures in the 70s.

Some morning lows on Monday will be in the 40s for a true taste of fall. The fine September weather should continue into the middle of next week.
