Tracking an increase in storms

Good Saturday and welcome to the weekend. Showers and thunderstorms have been rather scattered over the past few days. The action today and into early next week looks to become a bit more widespread.

The stormy part of the forecast is the bad news. We do have some good news, and that’s the cooler air that will be pushing into the region. Daytime highs will generally be in the 80s through next week.

A cold front is on top of the state today and this front will deliver a line of showers and storms moving in by the end of the day. Some of those storms will be on the strong side and we may have a few severe storms in the north.

Here’s what you need to track the storms:

Today’s risk area
Latest Day 1 convective outlook

Current watches
Current Watches

Possible watch areas
Current MDs

The cold front will slow down and become stationary across the commonwealth by Sunday and Monday. That’s when rounds of showers and storms work in from the west and northwest.


The storms will be with us each and every day for the week ahead. That’s because we have flipped the pattern back to one featuring a big dip in the jet stream across the easter part of the country:Euro 2

Make it a great Saturday and take care.
