The driest weather since mid-June has descended on Southern New England. Dew point temperatures, a measure of moisture in the air, were in the mid 40s in most of Southern New England Monday afternoon. That is far drier than any weather in SNE dating back through July to mid-June. The last time the dew point temperature was in the mid 40s was on June 15, 2013.
The dry, clear airmass will allow for an unseasonably cool night – especially outside of the city and away from the coast. Some in the countryside may see the temperature drop into the upper 40s by dawn Tuesday. It will be in the low to mid 50s elsewhere. The dry weather will hang around into the midweek.
