september 1st. we had a good september song here for you, it's going to be cooling off this month. that's what we can look forward to this month. it's certainly not going to be like last month was, we finished august off yed. august was the warmest august ever on record in the summer. meteorological summer was the driest ever. we know that by now. cooling off this month, the average high temperature beginning of the month 77, 67 by the end of the month. sunset, ooh, that's tough to take. gets earlier. 7:17 now. 6:27 by the fall foliage extravaganza begins. they've had quite a of rain. so hopefully we get some good color up there. low to even a few middle 70s thanks to wbz weather watchers. thanks for all your reports as usual. dew points are in the mid to upper 60s, almost 70 here. but in the upper 50s in northern
