Look Out for Localized Flash Floods As Downpours Slowly Move In



    Morning Fog to Eventually Clear

    Today (Tuesday): AM fog and drizzle, PM sun and scattered downpours. Highs in the 80s.

    Overnight Tuesday Night: Partly cloudy, patchy fog. Lows in the 60s.

    Wednesday: Hot and humid sun, North Country thunder. Highs near 90.

    Wet weather will continue on and off for the next 24 hours.

    The ground is saturated and any additional rain will have a difficult time being absorbed. Flash flooding is possible with any slow moving downpours. These downpours will be difficult to pinpoint where they will fall and how much rain will fall.

    Temperatures will warm up once again. Highs will once again reach the 80s and coupled with the high humidity, it will feel more like the mid-90s. It appears we will stay warm and humid for the remainder of the 10-day forecast period.

    The heaviest, steadiest rain will hit Northern New England by Wednesday. Thursday looks to be dry and a pretty nice beach day. Showers and thunderstorms are again possible by Friday and possibly into Saturday.

    We’re a bit more optimistic for the weekend forecast. Unfortunately, heavy downpours are possible at some point this weekend, but there should be plenty of sunshine and dry time mixed in between.

    Early next week, we might return to this pattern of downpours, thunderstorms, warmth and humidity.
