NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — It was hot and humid one week ago but it looks like September will end on a chilly note with the coldest day since Memorial Day.
Temperatures are expected to dip below 40 degrees Thursday night over most of the Berkshires and Accuweather is warning that the first fall frost may be upon us.
"Many locations from the northern mid-Atlantic to the Canadian border are forecast to bottom out 3-8 degrees below what is normal for the first morning of October," according to Accuweather, and meteorologist Adam Sadvary says, "Frost development will be most favorable for the mountains and higher elevations in the interior Northeast."
The potential for frost runs right down through the Berkshires, over most of northern Vermont and New Hampshire, and in the New York Adirondacks.
According to Channel 10 Weather in Albany, N.Y., the first frost usually comes in early October but last year came even earlier, on Sept. 19. The last frost was on May 13.
Thursday looks to be the coldest night this week, with temperatures bouncing back up into the 60s during the day and increasing in warmth during the next week.
Fall Foliage Sunday is forecast to be partly sunny with temperatures in the low 70s and 30 percent chance of precipitation. Should be a great day to watch the parade.
