Nightly Weather Forecast for October 19

The last couple weeks of spring couldn't last forever. An impressive blast of cold will move in for the weekend with temperatures struggling out of the 20s in most towns on Saturday. With some wind and after our recent stretch of warmth it's going to be a rude awakening!

A big dip in the jet stream will allow the cold to sink south. You can see a sharp and somewhat impressive trough of low pressure over the northeastern U.S. 

The real chill moves in Friday night as temperatures drop into the teens with strong winds. 

While this surge of chill will seem impressive it's not going to last too long. A surge of milder than normal air lurks to the southwest of southern New England for Tuesday and Wednesday.
