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.
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
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.
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.
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.
