Today's Weather: A Chilly Morning Makes Way For A Pleasant Day

I kind of laughed when I looked at the computer models to figure out the forecast for the next several days. Sunny days, clear nights — rinse and repeat. I suppose I could try to guess the exact high temperature at Logan Airport over the next seven days, because that's about the most challenging thing I'll have to forecast.

By some measures, this might be the nicest seven-day forecast over the entire year. It's not often that you have beach weather and crisp fall temperatures within a very short period of time, all blanketed with sunshine.

Hurricane Humberto brought rough weather to Bermuda overnight and now continues to move east. It will bring rough seas to our region through Friday and if you are headed to the beaches, be aware of heavy surf and rip currents.

Temperatures are below average this morning, with a few pockets of frost in parts of Worcester and Franklin counties. But this afternoon, with all this sunshine, most of us will hit temperatures between 65 and 70.

It gets warmer tomorrow, and even warmer over the weekend. Depending on the configuration of the winds Sunday and Monday, a few spots could make it close to that 90-degree mark. We have not seen a 90-degree day this late in the season since 2007, and that was the only one this late in the season this century. In addition to the warm weather, I don't see any rain in the forecast until sometime next week.
