The only way to describe New England weather in September and October is "Highly Variable." During the first week of September, you may to encounter both days in the 90's, especially in the south, and nights in the teens, especially in the northern reaches. For daytime wear, I would bring a couple pairs of shorts, a few pairs of slacks, a few sweaters or sweatshirts, a light jacket, a heavy jacket, warm gloves, and a warm hat. For ladies, skirts of various weights and lengths would be a viable alternative to shorts and slacks. Bear in mind that you might not actually wear all of this, but there's no way to know what conditions you actually will encounter.
