Numerous Rain Chances This Week

Scattered showers continue across the state on this Monday and it’s already the wettest day since August 13, 2014 – 306 days ago.

Temperatures are stuck in the 60s for most, so it’s on the cool side.

The weather improves a bit tomorrow, with breaks of sunshine, though that can cause trouble.

Showers and thunderstorms will flare up across New York and Pennsylvania in association with a cold front and some storms could reach western portions of Connecticut. Any storms that reach the state will weaken as they move east.

Temperatures will be in the lower-80s inland, with dew points surging into the 60s. It will be very humid.

Wednesday looks marvelous with lots of sun, a few puffy clouds and temperatures near 80 degrees. The humidity will be gone, at least for the day.

Another disturbance comes through on Thursday, with plenty of clouds and scattered showers and storms.

A great finish to the work week is lined up for Friday, with lots of sunshine and no humidity.

What about the tropics? The second named storm of the season, Bill, might form soon.

An organized area of thunderstorms over the south-central Gulf of Mexico is being investigated by Hurricane Hunter aircraft.

More than a foot of rain is possible in portions of Texas, exactly where more rain isn’t needed after a deluge a few weeks back. That moisture heads in the direction of New England early next week.
