The first true taste of fall will arrive this weekend.
Clouds will give way to a few showers this evening, with temperatures in the lower 80s.
Morning clouds will be replaced by increasing sunshine on Saturday, but temperatures will only reach 70 degrees.
It turns even cooler Sunday, under sunny skies, as temperatures only rise into the middle 60s.
High pressure building in overhead means the wind will go calm and there's a chance for the season's first frost Sunday night.
Upper 30s are possible in the Connecticut River Valley, while middle 30s are possible in the hill towns.
Monday appears dry and seasonable with plenty of sunshine.
A period of rain is likely Tuesday morning as a cold front comes through. But, that looks to be the only rain of consequence next week.
Dry weather returns Wednesday and lasts into the weekend with high temperatures each day in the lower 70s.
