WEATHER BLOG: Calmer Saturday
The past couple of days have felt like the movie ” Groundhogs Day” with Bill Murray. Today the coverage of showers and thunderstorms will be less than recent days. This is due to a shortwave wave that has moved in northern New England ( which caused the severe weather and flooding yesterday) and another shortwave back into the Ohio Valley. We are in between upper level energies, but with the humid airmass in place along with a stationary front draped over the region there will be scattered showers and thunderstorms around. These storms are mainly going to occur during the afternoon hours once the sun comes up for several hours. The severe weather threat does not seem to be an issue today due to the strong forcing is in New England and the Ohio Valley. Once the sun sets tonight the showers and thunderstorms will once again decrease in coverage and only become isolated or completely dissipate.
On Sunday and Monday there will be frequent showers and thunderstorms. Monday appears especially active with a SW moving northward through the flow. At this point Tuesday through Thursday appear to be similar in the day-to-day activity with showers and thunderstorms developing each day. This of course could
still lead to some heavier rainfall at times.
