Thunderstorms Move Through State



    Heavy rain and thunderstorms are moving east across the state, but the threat of severe storms has passed and all warnings and watches have been canceled.

    Heat and humidity fueled storms through the afternoon and into the evening. Despite the potential for winds of up to 60 mph and small hail, most damage has been reported over the state line in western Massachusetts.

    A cold front comes through Thursday, likely early enough to preclude any significant weather.

    A spot shower or storm is possible midday; otherwise, a mix of sun and clouds is anticipated.
    Expect mostly sunny skies Friday. Not only will there be a break from the shower and thunderstorm threat, but the humidity will be gone for the day. Temperatures will be in the low 80s inland, upper 70s at the water.

    At this point, the weekend looks split. A strong cold front will come through Sunday. That means increasing clouds, breezy and warm conditions on Saturday with temperatures in the mid-80s. A pop-up shower can’t be ruled out, but the vast majority of the rain and possibly thunder will occur Sunday.

    Early indications for the start of next week show high pressure building down from Canada, meaning much cooler conditions. Temperatures will be stuck in the 60s! There is the chance for showers on both Monday and Tuesday, especially in southern areas, as a frontal boundary will be stalled to the south.
