Line of showers, thunderstorms hit until Wednesday evening


Wednesday morning picked up where Tuesday night left off – beautiful, sunny and dry. However, this afternoon through this evening, a line of showers with encrusted showers and potentially a few thunderstorms is rolling from west to east with a brief gusting wind. The threat of severe weather phenomena is non-zero, but seems much lower than initially expected due to the faster forward speed of this line, which crosses our region within 20 hours. Rain can be heavy at times and result in localized minor flash floods, most picking up between 0.5 and 1.0 ″ of rain, as well as a few higher totals if multiple showers occur in the same location. Low temperature tonight, high 50 to low 60.

Tomorrow the border stops just to our east and maintains abundant cloud cover over our heads. This cloud cover can sometimes spit a few showers on our way, but many will stay dry. Low to mid 70’s. Light southerly wind 5-15 mph. Thursday evening, partly to mostly cloudy. Low to mid-fifties.

On Friday, a weak low developed over eastern New England and heading north, again rotating clouds across the north of the country and causing an isolated downpour or two, especially over the terrain higher. It feels like a fall Friday, with a high mid to mid-60s temperature and a blustery northwesterly wind of 10-20 mph. Friday night, from 40 to 50.

Have a good evening!
