    Rounds of downpours and storms will continue Wednesday evening into the night across New England as muggy air remains locked in place. The biggest threat with these cells is the localized heavy rain that quickly causes areas of street flooding.

    Clerk Pulls Out Machete on Would-Be Robber

    [NATL] Clerk Pulls Out Machete on Would-Be Robber

    A would-be robber armed with a knife had a surprise in store when an Alabama store clerk pulled out a machete in defense. The two's brief knife fight was caught on camera before the clerk runs out to damage the robber's car.

    According to police, suspect Seth Holcomb walked up to the counter to make a purchase. He leaves the store and then comes back in as if to make a second purchase. Then, he pulled out a knife at the counter. What he didn't expect was that the clerk would pull out a machete of his own.

    Thursday will bring a blend of sunshine and clouds, and more pop up downpours and storms in the still humid air mass. Highs will be in the 80s, so not quite as hot as past days.

    Late Thursday, expect some clearing to arrive in Western New England. That will then continue to slide east, bringing more pleasant weather for week's end.

    Friday will feature plenty of sunshine, lower humidity and highs in the 80s.

    The weekend looks best along and north of the Massachusetts Turnpike for now. That means the most sun is likely over the mountains of northern New England. Clouds will be more numerous, with a better chance of scattered showers or a storm, south of there. Expect highs in the 70s and 80s. Even in far southern New England though, neither day will be a total washout.

    Next week also looks more seasonable, with more 80s than anything else.
