Cherry Picking The Weekend
Posted by Pete Bouchard
Fine work by the sun today. Brought us right back into summer!
Now, in typical summer fashion, the storms will move back into the picture. Here's the weekend in one snapshot:
Nice graphic, but it deserves some explanation.
A fast-moving storm system is rolling out of Upstate New York this evening. Showers and a passing storm are possible in the morning along the Mass/NH border. Once that passes, we'll have about a 60% chance of afternoon storms in the afternoon for all but the Cape/Islands. (Don't think you're getting off scott-free...fog will be an issue through Tuesday.)
Sunday will dawn murky and mostly gray. Some sun will be around, along with small chance for a storm.
If Sunday is the "driest" day of the holiday weekend, then Monday is the wettest. A weather system will bear down on New England, and showers will be around early and late.
Keep in mind that this is a humid, soupy airmass. Any storms that form have the potential for torrential rain and brief, localized flooding. And for as much hype we give the storms, we have to mention the dry hours too. This is what we mean by not being washed out. Midday Saturday, much of Sunday and a few hours on Monday should be rain-free.
Now go! Make use of the last weekend of summer. Snow (and the holidays) are just around the corner.
Be well and be safe.
