Nice Weather Tuesday & Wednesday Turns Unsettled For Thursday Night & Friday

It looks like a couple of decent weather days for Tuesday & Wednesday with sunshine expected. High temperatures both days will be near 75 Degrees. A slow moving frontal system is expected to push through the region for Thursday night and Friday. This means that Thursday looks like it’ll start out with sunshine with clouds moving in by afternoon. It appears some isolated showers are possible by late in the day. High temperatures will be between 75 and 80 Degrees. Widespread showers with scattered thunderstorms are expected throughout Thursday Night & Friday. Locally heavy rainfall is possible with any thunderstorm activity. Low temperatures Thursday night will be near 60 Degrees. High temperatures Friday will be near 70 Degrees. In other areas of weather – activity in terms of tropical systems have switched on in the Atlantic as I’m extremely busy now tracking and forecasting two systems for my Crown Weather Services clients. They are Tropical Storm Franklin in the Caribbean and Potential Tropical Cyclone 9, which will likely become Tropical Storm Harold in the Gulf of Mexico. It is Tropical Storm Franklin that will need to be watched extremely closely in relation to our weather here in Western and Central Mass. The future track of Franklin is going to be highly dependent on the upper level weather pattern over the next week. Weather forecast guidance seems to be trending towards a stronger Bermuda high and a weaker low pressure trough over the northeastern United States. That Bermuda high helps to push Franklin further west before that upper level high relents a little allowing for the storm to turn to the northeast by the middle part of next week missing Southern New England, but directly impacting Nova Scotia. For now, I think Franklin poses the greatest threat to Nova Scotia with little or no risk of a direct impact to our area. For Franklin to track in a way to directly impact Southern New England, you will need a cutoff trough of low pressure over the eastern Great Lakes and I’m not seeing that right now. That said, I will be keeping an eye on Tropical Storm Franklin and will keep you updated as needed.
