Bundle Up! Southern New England Braces for Colder, Windy Day

Good morning! Brace yourselves for a noticeable drop in temperatures today across Southern New England.

TODAY It’s Independent Man Day, and preparations are underway to remove the statue atop the State House dome around 7 AM. However, the operation might face challenges due to cold and gusty weather conditions. Expect northwest winds at 5-10mph with gusts reaching 15-20mph. Safety considerations for the crew during this procedure will depend on the wind threshold.

As we kick off the day, temperatures will hover in the 30s, with a peak in the low 40s expected during the morning. Anticipate a mix of clouds and sunshine throughout.

A noteworthy event awaits in the sky: an extraordinary pass of the Space Station is scheduled for Tue Dec 05 at 4:54:23 PM EST. It’ll start from the northwest, ascend to 85° above the horizon, and last for 6.7 minutes.
