Today's Weather: Cold Start, Milder Finish

A bright and chilly day Tuesday has led to a cold start to our Wednesday. Many areas are back in the 30s, and I suspect that a touch of frost is evident in many of the colder hollows where the wind died down overnight.

Temperatures are going to moderate as we move forward, and I'm hopeful we're not going to see any more risk of frost this year.  That said, there is a slight risk overnight again in the coldest areas.

It's another sunny day and temperatures Wednesday afternoon will be milder than what we experienced yesterday, reaching towards 60 degrees. The sun this time of the year is as strong as the final week of July so, in spite of the cool weather, remember it's very easy to get a sunburned in a short period of time.

The fine weather continues Thursday. Some of us will approach the 70-degree mark.

On Friday, a weather system is going to move into northern New England. As it does so, warmer and more humid air will stream northward. This will be a catalyst for a few showers and an evening thunderstorm. Temperatures will get well into the 70s with that touch of humidity.

Saturday looks like a stunning day with light winds and readings within a few degrees of 70 most of the afternoon.

Another small system approaches for later in the weekend and early next week, bringing a renewed chance of showers.
