Tracking storms and a temp crash

Good Thursday to one and all. The day of change is finally here. No, that isn’t a political slogan, it’s the weather slogan of the day. Rain and thunderstorms, gusty winds and a big temp crash are dominating the weather picture out there.

  • Thursday’s showers and storms can put down some significant totals as they sweep eastward.
  • The most likely chance of strong storms will be across the central and eastern part of the state. Your tracking tools in a bit.
  • Winds are going to be cranking, with gusts of 30 to 40 mph possible as the colder air sweeps in from west to east.
  • Leftover showers get out of town by Friday afternoon, with some sunshine returning.
  • Winds will be very gusty and usher in the coldest air of the season, with highs in the 50s.
  • Lows in the mid- and upper 30s are a good bet for many by Saturday morning:

  • Winds are likely to remain too high for widespread frost to develop, although some patchy stuff is certainly possible.
  • Saturday is another windy and chilly day, with highs in the low 60s west and middle 50s east. All of this happens as our storm strengthens across New England.
  • This might put down snow in New England and could cause the first flakes to fly in the highest elevations of the Appalachian Mountains.

As always, I have you set to track Thursday’s big changes:
