back from vacation and rested and back to work. That first morning back and getting going is the toughest.Had excellent weather last week. Down on Cape cod the middle of last week,and had sunny weather,except for a late day thundershower on Wednesday.Lots of beach time and the water has warmed up to nice levels.
We are in for some very heavy rains for Wednesday this week,so will have to watch how severe weather developes and for any flooding occurs.
Notice the sunrise is much later now then before I left for vacation,so summer is definitely on the downward trend.Also of note is the lack of heat this summer.No 90 degree days for August yet,and only about 5 for the entire summer.
The setup is there for significant rain event. since this complicated system is a slow mover,the potential is there for some areas getting up to 5 inches. The greatest potential is along the higher elevations,where there will be lift. This is also a small chance of severe weather,but the greatest risk right now is along the south coast and also long island.It really depends on where the triple point low forms and then moves northeast.
Heavy rain has moved into Southern New England this morning,and it is expected to be around the whole day. Depending on where the heaviest bands of rain set up,there will be some flash flooding.A very heavy band moved over Long Island this morning and moved into RI and heading up toward the Boston area and south shore. Movement is slow so expect some very high totals. 1-3 inches and many areas with some pockets of 4 or 5 inches.Not as bad as south along the Maryland and southern NJ area which received up to 10-12 inches of rain yesterday and last night.
Wet weather is gone,cool dry air has moved in.Some areas received 5-10 inches of rain,such as Long Island, Rhode Island,parts of conn. and central Mass.Now some quiet weather moves in with just a slight chance of an afternoon shower for inland areas.Next chance of showers is on Sunday,but right now that is not for certain.No hot weather in sight.As things stand now,our current weather pattern will remain through the rest of the summer.
