Friday forecast: Isolated storm chance today, dry this weekend

Adjust Comment Print

Today (Wednesday): We're stuck in this same pattern for one more day, although we may get through the morning hours with just a few passing showers, as the juiciest air shifts to our east. Mostly sunny, with a high near 92. The severe weather is over, but the rain continues as scattered showers and a few rumbles are expected through the weekend. Any of the developing storms will be capable of very heavy rainfall along with frequent lightning. The showers will be on and off as the low spins to the west of Ohio. As this moves out, and with the loss of daytime heating, any stray shower would end in the evening, then the skies will clear out. This is allowing for a Low pressure system that is now at the North Carolina/ Virginia border to bring humid, tropical like air to the region on Sunday. Mostly sunny Wednesday as highs climb into the low to upper 80s. Clouds will keep temperatures in the upper 70s and lower 80s with muggy conditions through the day. We can't rule out an isolated storm on Friday.

"Showers and widely scattered thunderstorms will move into western MA and north central CT around midday", the service wrote. While flooding is possible through Canon City, rain looks heavier north and south of the city.

Friday NightA 40 percent chance of showers and thunderstorms. Instead of widespread storms and a constant threat for flooding, the period from Thursday through the weekend will be a little more typical in terms of mid-summer weather.

More of the same for Monday with highs in the low 80s and scattered showers and storms likely for the afternoon and evening.

Hang in for a sticky and locally wet ride this week! Please be as descriptive as possible and also include the location (town/city) where the photo or video was taken.
