We’ve got a change in the weather coming. Low pressure approaching from the Great Lakes lifted a warm front through the region overnight bringing a continuation of mild temperatures and some early morning showers. The low will swing a strong cold front through the region this afternoon. A narrow band of showers and isolated thunderstorms is expected to develop out ahead of the front across the northern ‘Dacks by early afternoon and move east across Vermont later this afternoon. We can expect strong, gusty winds and heavy downpours with these showers and storms. Much colder air will move in behind the front for Sunday and Monday as the low drops into northern New England bringing scattered showers both days and maybe even a few snow showers over the higher terrain on Monday. Highs Monday and Tuesday will struggle to make it into the low 50s.

About Today’s Photo:
We’ve moved back to Huntington for the season so you’ll start to see some more photos from this lovely part of the world! The Korean mountain ash in our front yard has set its berries and they’re ripening nicely. These will provide valuable nutrition for birds later this fall and into the winter.
