It didn’t exactly feel like September 2 in New York City or Boston, on Tuesday. But just you wait fellow fall lovers, an autumnal feeling will soon spread into the Northeast and elsewhere.

On Tuesday, the mercury topped out at 92 and 93 in New York’s Central Park and at Boston’s Logan Airport, respectively, making September 2nd the hottest day so far in 2014 — for both cities. unfortunately, the heat and humidity is going to last a little while.

For the next few days, hot and sticky weather will hang over the I-95 corridor along the East Coast, but come this weekend you might start to finally get “hoodie” and pumpkin coffee weather.

By Saturday, and mostly into Sunday (for coastal locations it’ll be the latter), a strong cold front will move in from the West; it will drop temperatures to cooler, more September-like levels.

For the Twin Cities and portions of the upper Midwest, that fall-like chill overspreads the region with 60s by Friday. And those cooler temperatures migrate eastward by the weekend.

New York and Boston will struggle to hit 70 by Sunday and Monday- offering a blast of natural air conditioning after a week of unusually hot weather in the region.

Thinking about heading to northern New England or the Upper Peninsula of Michigan to check out those beautiful fall colors? We’re probably not quite there yet- but that time is coming in the next few weeks (next weekend, not this one, should start to feature some terrific foliage). Get ready for fall!
