Fall-Like Now, Summer-Like Weekend

It's hard to believe that summer began last week with that nasty heat-wave and now, it feels more like fall across Connecticut and much of the northeast.
The image above is the GFS weather model at 06z (2am) on Wednesday showing the 500mb heights. The main feature that jumps out is the closed area of low pressure to our northeast. This low is allowing cool temperatures (along with gusty winds) to get pulled down from Canada but it is also keeping the unstable air in place, which is why we've seen lots of clouds and scattered showers.
With the low beginning to pull away Wednesday, temps begin to go back up and more sun than clouds, but it is close enough that we could still see a pop-up storm on Wednesday afternoon, mainly east of I-91 on the outer fringes of the exiting storm.
