A slow moving cold front is headed our way and promises to bring an end to our stretch of dry weather over the weekend. The southerly flow out ahead of the front is already transporting more moisture our way as evidenced by the rising dew points. This should lead to considerable low clouds and fog tonight so chances are you won't see the sun when you wake up Saturday morning. This should be temporary as I do expect the sun to burn through the cloudiness giving us a partly sunny day. Look for the wind to pick up out of the south keeping temperatures in the mid 60s near the coast with slightly warmer readings inland. The front should be here by Sunday morning making for a wet start to the day. As the front moves off the Maine coast in the afternoon the rain will taper to scattered showers. Autumn officially begins at 4:44 pm Sunday and right about that time the wind will be shifting into the northwest with some rather chilly air ready to move in. This will set the stage for a fair but cool day on Monday with temperatures well below normal. After that we can look forward to a dry week with temperatures slowly moderating.
