Widespread Rain Leaving; Isolated Storms Still Possible

The widespread rain from the afternoon will be mostly gone by 4:30PM.  Our attention this evening will be focused on some isolated showers and thunderstorms — isolated meaning that most communities won’t see them, but they will be around.

At 3PM, a warm front was draped across Upstate New York through Long Island and to our south.  This front will lift northward through the evening, becoming a mechanism for isolated showers and thunderstorms.

At 6PM, some isolated showers could begin to form across western Massachusetts and Connecticut and move into Southeast New England.

These storms likely won’t become too strong as the afternoon rain has altered the atmosphere to a point where severe weather will be unfavorable in our area.  While the showers won’t be terribly widespread or strong, there could still be some locally heavy rainfall.

If you plan on going to the PawSox game this evening, the weather looks okay, but it wouldn’t hurt to bring some ponchos as there could be an isolated shower or t’storm at any time this evening.

The chance for showers and t’storms decreases as that warm front lifts to our north (around 10PM).

After 10PM, the air will become muggy with some areas of fog forming.  Toward dawn, there could be a shower or brief thunderstorm as the cold front (now in western New York) approaches the region.
