Changes on the Horizon

After a several day stretch of beautiful weather with mild temperatures, light winds, and mostly sunny skies, changes are on the horizon. A cold front will march east tomorrow and cross our area during the evening, with the higher summits likely going into the clouds and rain transitioning to mixed precipitation and snow showers as temperatures fall below freezing by Sunday.

Today was a picture perfect fall day atop New England, with plenty of color in the surrounding valleys below. There was a noticeable difference in color from north to south, with areas north of the mountains already appearing to be past their peak while the view to the south appears to be near peak color. After several days of being mostly in the clouds over the next few days, the scene when we emerge from the clouds will likely be a much different one; with the high peaks of New England showing signs of winter while the valleys still look more fall-like. I’m personally looking forward to the changing seasons ahead, but I’m also happy to enjoy fall while it lasts!
