SATURDAY- As we say goodbye to July 2008, we will have very typical weather for this summer to endure. Tomorrow will be one of those days here in SNE this summer where we start off with some sun and hazy skies and quickly shoot up to the mid 80's, before afternoon showers and thunderstorms develop and bring a nice dousing of rainfall to many areas. Tomorrow's threat for severe weather looks greatest in western New England, mainly west of Worcester where there could be some severe storms that dump heavy rain, possibly large hail, and strong winds. Frequent lightning is always a risk with thunderstorms, severe or not, so be aware tomorrow. The atmosphere isn't conducive for tornadoes tomorrow like early this past week, so we won't have to worry about that. We will likely see watches go up tomorrow late morning and continue to say 5-8PM.
Thereafter we dry out for Monday and Tuesday with seasonable temperatures in the mid 80's before we return to a more unsettled period for Wednesday and heading into the new month of August on Friday. Temperatures will be cooler into the 70's, but I think we avoid the heaviest of the rain here in SNE as most of the energy will be confined to central and northern New England where locally heavy rain is possible come Wednesday night into Thursday. It looks to be unsettled heading into next weekend though, so just be aware for making plans.
The tropics are very quiet tonight and will likely be quiet for a while as the winds have become unfavorable for any development near any sort of landmass. So, that's good news. Maybe the Red Sox will be able to salvage one game tomorrow at Fenway?
