Staying Unsettled

The storms did not materialize here in SNE this afternoon. It looked like we would get a few strong storms to get into at least western and central SNE, but that never really happened. There were a few storms that developed out by Springfield, but they did not really materialize well. There was a Severe Thunderstorm Watch for a while in western and northern New England, where there were a few severe thunderstorms that moved from SW to NE. Most of the major storms stayed in Vermont and western New Hampshire. This evening, the storms are diffusing and its getting quiet out there. No storms will interupt your sleep tonight.

There will be a similar threat for tomorrow with PM thunderstorms and showers. These could be quite heavy in western New England, go figure. Western MA, and VT and the Capital District could see heavy rainfall amounts, localized in the 1-2" category, with isolated higher amounts possible. There will be less in the way of rainfall for eastern New England, but there will be the same risk for strong to severe thunderstorms in the afternoon for everyone, including eastern New England, including Boston, Providence, Portsmouth. The showers will end on Thursday before a good Friday and then we could be back in the rain for Friday night and the first part of Saturday. Thereafter, we remain unsettled. It won't be raining all the time, or even 30-40 percent of the time, but there will be a constant threat of showers and thunderstorms for the next 5-7 days.
