Cold fronts to bring hints of winter

A pair of cold fronts will cool things down in New England this weekend, bringing our area some of its coldest temperatures of the fall to date.

The first of the two fronts will pass through this morning, and while it is expected to be relatively weak, temperatures will be held below 50°F, making it noticeably colder than yesterday.

Next, a second front associated with a low pressure system currently located over the northern plains will blow through tomorrow, resulting in high, gusty winds for most of the day.

In its aftermath, temperatures will dip below freezing tomorrow night, and will only reach the low 40s (°F) on Sunday. These will likely be some of the coldest temperatures of this autumn so far, as the temperature at the Green Building’s weather station has fallen below freezing only once so far in the latter half of 2010.
