A glorious day is on the way for Boston and much of southern New England as the weather gods appear to be smiling favorably on Red Sox nation. Today is the final day of late sunrises (post 7AM) for a while, but also the last day of sunsets before 5PM until early February.
Sunrise Saturday is a very late 7:19, but will be a much earlier 6:20 on Sunday morning.
Out in the Pittsfield area this morning a few sleet pellets and some snow flurries have been reported. This very slight taste of winter is courtesy of a weak weather disturbance moving by to our north. When meteorologists use the word disturbance, not storm, it's usually a change in wind direction and speed some level above 10,000 feet causing the issue. Today's "disturbance" is moving by at around 18,000 feet.

Game 1 of the World Series starts tonight and even if you're not a fan of baseball, you can't help but know this is a big deal for Boston and all of Red Sox Nation. This is the 4th time the Sox and the Cardinals have played since they first met in the 1946 series.

Today is going to mark the 15th day this month we've hit 60°F or higher and tomorrow will make it 16. The other days were in the 70s or even low 80s. That is quite a stretch in what has turned out to be one of the best October weather months possible. While we need rain badly, this month has allowed baseball, soccer, hiking, apple picking, leaf peeping, fair going and the like to happen unimpeded by cold temperatures or rain. As you've no doubt heard, it's about to come to crashing halt.
