Good Afternoon,

We’ll see a mixture of sunshine  & clouds this afternoon and there could be a thunderstorm or two but most of the day will be dry. The best chance of seeing a storm will be across northern Berkshire County and Franklin County.  A fast-moving front and associated compact wave of upper-level energy will move over northern New England this afternoon. Western Mass. will be on the southern edge of this system so although most of the energy will stay north it’s possible that we could see a storm or two.  However, most of the afternoon will be dry. Any storm that does develop however has the potential to contain strong, gusty winds and hail.  The best chance of strong to severe storms will be across central and northern New England.

Skies will clear tonight and  temperatures will reach the cool 50s once again, by morning.

It becomes a bit more humid tomorrow with a mix of sun and clouds.  A few pop-up mainly isolated showers are possible tomorrow afternoon and evening as weak lift and energy still above us combine with the warmth and increased humidity of the day- most will stay dry though.

The weekend forecast remains tricky but for the second day in a row most of the data is pointing towards Atlantic moisture along a front and wave of low pressure to back into New England from the south and east.  This means to plan on at least some unsettled weather with a couple of periods of rain. The timing is still a bit in question but both days could feature at least some rain. We’ll be able to narrow it down more over the next day or so.

Have a great afternoon!
