Widespread Storms Expected to Impact the Region
The humidity is in place and a warm front continues to lift northward through northern New England. This airmass sets us up for more tropical downpours with any shower or storm that moves through tonight and into Friday morning.
The heavy rain may bring 1-2 inches across isolated spots, depending on where the heaviest rain sets up. A cold front will slowly move through Friday, bringing widespread storms and rain across the northeast for the Friday morning drive into work. Localized flooding is a concern early in the day, but by afternoon the rain will be more scattered.
We stay warm and muggy overnight in the 60s to 70s, and highs tomorrow will be in the 80s with more humidity. The rain ends by nightfall Friday and we have an awesome weekend lined up!
Saturday and Sunday our highs will be in the mid to upper 80s, and lowering humidity. Sunday afternoon a couple storms may pop up in the mountains.
Our quiet weather pattern continues through most next week, but by the end of the week we may see some heavy rainfall head our way. This will be associated with the remnants from what is now called Tropical Storm Barry.
This storm will bring flooding rainfall across the Gulf Coast through the weekend. River flooding and the storm surge will create a dangerous situation as this slow moving system makes landfall somewhere along the coast of Louisiana as a possible hurricane by Saturday. The forecast track is still a tad uncertain, so stay tuned for further updates on the hazards associated with Barry.
