Another Round Of Widespread Showers & Thunderstorms Late Thursday Night & Friday

For Tonight: Widely scattered showers and thunderstorms are expected to continue until about sunset, mostly over Western Mass. Any of the heavier showers and thunderstorms will be capable of producing torrential downpours. Given the extremely saturated ground right now, any additional rainfall could lead to quick flooding of roads, highways, urban areas and areas of poor drainage. It’s something that I’m keeping an eye on. For the overnight hours of tonight, I expect partly cloudy skies with areas of fog likely. Low temperatures will be between 65 and 70 Degrees. Winds will be West at 5 to 10 mph. Thursday: Overall, Thursday looks like a dry, but very warm and humid day. Skies will be partly sunny after some early morning patchy fog. High temperatures will be between 85 and 90 Degrees. Winds will be South at 5 to 10 mph in the morning and South at 10 to 20 mph in the afternoon. Thursday Night & Friday: An area of low pressure is expected to lift across the region during late Thursday night into Friday. The combination of a moist southerly wind flow, lots of humid air and energy and forcing from the low pressure system will lead to widespread showers and thunderstorms beginning during the after midnight hours of Thursday night and continuing into much of the day on Friday. Rainfall totals from late Thursday night through Friday are expected to be in the 1 to 2 inch range. Normally, rainfall totals like this aren’t a big deal, but this time they are. The very elevated river, stream and brook levels and the very saturated ground could lead to urban flooding, street flooding and highway flooding across the region. In addition, another round of water level rises on the rivers, streams and brooks are likely during the day on Friday. The flood threat for late Thursday night and Friday is something that’ll be watched closely. The time frame for the heavy showers and thunderstorms look to be from about midnight Thursday night through all of Friday into Friday evening. While it’s likely not going to rain the entire time, there will be the very real threat for showers and thunderstorms during this time period. Low temperatures Thursday night will be near 70 Degrees. High temperatures will be near 80 Degrees. This Weekend: It looks like yet another round of heavy showers and thunderstorms that’ll once again produce a flood threat across the region for Sunday and Sunday night. Saturday looks partly sunny with the possibility of some scattered showers and thunderstorms during the afternoon. High temperatures will be near 85 Degrees. Sunday and Sunday night looks wet and could be a total washout as an area of low pressure moves across the region. Widespread showers and thunderstorms are expected throughout Sunday and Sunday night before they come to an end around Monday morning. Early indications are that rainfall totals of 1 to 2 inches with some locally higher amounts are possible. This will only add to the misery in terms of flood potential and river level rises. It’s something to definitely watch closely. High temperatures Sunday will be near 80 Degrees.
