July 28th
This has been a very active summer for the northern tier and especially for the northeast,as the storm track has remained across the northern plains,Great Lakes and northeast.
Today is no exception.We had some heavy storms scattered around yesterday and today has started off with a severe storm moving through around 9 am edt with torrential rains and lots of lightning.Should clear out quickly and remain mostly cloudy for the rest of the morning,but we'll have to watch the radar this afternoon as there is more risk of storms,but scattered.

July 29th
So we've had our couple of days of wild weather,and now we're in a quiet cool and comfortable weather.
Its been a strange summer of changing weather every 3 or 4 days.Flooding rains,and now a tornado,lack of heatwaves,only a few days where it hit 90.Far from a typical summer here in New England.And now a tornado in the middle of a city,can't wait to see whats next. Hurricane probably

July 30th

As for most of the summer we have a trough situated over the Great Lakes and Northeast,with a front sitting off shore. This will be around for the rest of the week,but then the trough retrogrades back to the west,allowing the front to move back over New England and a low pressure will move up the front and it looks like we are in for some steady rain for a while this weekend.When this occurs is still up in the air.Will the whole weekend be a washout or just one day,still have no real idea as yet.It will move back east again at some point to end the rain,not sure when.Things aren't moving very fast so timing is an issue.

July 31st

So July comes to an end with slightly warmer than normal temps,and much above normal rainfall.
Very active month to start and end with.Severe storms were frequent in the first week and the last week.
We ended up with almost 8 inches of rain this month some areas over 10 inches.
No heatwaves,in fact we ended up with only four 90 degree days.Not normal for this summer month.
Unusually deep troughs were common.The Bermuda High stayed farther out to sea.
August looks to start off wet also,with no heat in sight.Don't see any change in the pattern right now and it very well could stay like this the rest of the summer.

Aug. 1st
So we went from invest to Tropical Storm overnight. Still looks very unorganized,but better than it did yesterday. Will have to see if it can maintain itself.Still feel its going to curve out to sea,with all the troughs on the east coast.

Dewpoint has jumped into the mid and upper 60's, and indication moisture is streaming in ahead of the front backing in from the ocean.

93L continuing to struggle has it heads for northern Antilles, still doesn't look like much and hopefully will bring some much needed rain to the Antilles who are in a serious drought right now.

So the tornado which did a lot of damage in a small area,was not enough to get any government aid.
Not enough people were effected and the structural damage didn't add up to the 9 million dollar minimum that fema has established,so the government can't help those who have been displaced or businesses which have been disrupted.
Kind of sad.We continue to aid people in flood prone areas time after time,but we can't help people who need help and this won't happen again.Hopefully their insurance will help them a little bit.

Gotta catch up on 93l but I think I have time 😉


Thats pretty wild,a few people caught the tornado,not sure I'm ok with people standing near windows and doors with a tornado going through,but I guess for people who don't get tornadoes, the safety issues don't come to mind at the time.

With dewpoints in the 70's,theres plenty of moisture,it just needs a trigger.If the sun stays out,it should fuel the fire.

Been rough for sure for tornados in New England this year. I think we're at three conformed in Maine so far and several in both Mass and CT. Hoping the atmosphere does not destabalize this afternoon.

Its been confirmed that it was a tornado that briefly touched down in Revere Mass.
It was a quick hitter,but did a lot of damage right in a residential neighborhood in this northern suburb of Boston.
This is such a rare summer pattern.

A Revere fire official says they have received reports of partial building and roof collapses after a powerful storm blew through the city.

The National Weather Service says it will investigate to determine whether a tornado may have touched down in the Revere area Monday morning.

Revere Deputy Fire Chief Mike Viviano said the Fire Department has received dozens of calls reporting partial building and roof collapses, possible gas leaks, downed trees and power lines.

Revere Police are encouraging travelers to avoid the city until further notice due to numerous road closures and heavy traffic.

Viviano said there were no immediate reports of serious injuries.

The Revere mayor is set to speak at 11:30 a.m. in regards to the possible tornado.

A powerful storm moved through the Boston-area shortly after 9 a.m., prompting the National Weather Service to issue a tornado warning for portions of Essex County. It was canceled shortly after 10 a.m.
