Summer days are numbered

Summer ends in less than a week (Monday the 22nd is arrival of autumn).  Overall, it was a hot summer for a good part of the season, although typical variability was seen.  Cool temperatures returning this week will carry us through the final few days as another northern ridge of high pressure builds just east of New England, pushing comfortable north and northeasterly winds down our way.

This set-up could also keep a good bit of cloudiness around, as it is this wedge that locks in cool surface air while moister air from the south over-runs it aloft.  We’ve seen this pattern a few times this summer, but as we approach fall and then winter, it tends to happen more frequently.  The turn of the seasons comes quickly sometimes.
