National Weather Service
The National Weather Service in Taunton has confirmed that a tornado touched down in Plymouth last week.
The clouds extend across all of eastern MA into NH. Meanwhile there is bright sunshine from Worcester west. After a cloudy morning, as the low begins to pull away, I expect some of the drier weather from the west to begin to work eastward eroding the cloud deck with drying NW winds and some increasing afternoon sun. Clouds will likely hold all day across NH, NE MA and right at the eastern Beaches. Where there is sunshine temps will be climbing into the lwr-mid 70′s..nearing 80- in Hartford, CT. Where there are clouds…the temps will remain in the 60′s
Temps are expected to surge this afternoon with sunny skies with highs climbing into the 80′s nearing 90.
The lack of heavy snow or rain from our record warm and dry winter is causing river levels to fall at an alarming rate for this time of year.
High pressure in place across the mid Atlantic is pulling offshore and will begin to wrap in a breezy SW wind today and start the warm up with highs climbing into the 50′s.
Well, you just do not get to see days like this very often do you? For weather lovers, the past 24 hours was about as good as it has been all winter
Cool filtered sunshine this morning with increasing high altitude clouds will give way to mostly cloudy skies this afternoon and warming temperatures into the 40′s. High pressure off the coast will wrap in warming SW winds…but the lack of sunshine will make it feel cooler. Keep a close eye on the radar today because we have quite a bit of rain just to our SW which is heading right to us for tonight. Clouds will thicken in advance of the rain this afternoon with showers arriving in western New England around sunset. Showers will be reaching the coast between 6-8 PM…
High pressure to our south is wrapping in warm humid light SW winds and providing enough dry sinking air that much of the weekend will remain dry..but humid with highs in the mid-upper 80′s…Near 80 on the Cape. As the high pulls off the coast Sunday, a better chance for more widespread scattered storms will develop late tomorrow in the west.
Isolated to Scattered Strong to Severe Thunderstorms are likely Monday Afternoon and Evening across the entire NWS Taunton County Warning Area. Damaging Winds, Large Hail, and urban/poor drainage flooding are the primary threats..
The latest storms brought down trees and power lines in Wilbraham, Springfield, East Longmeadow, Hampden and elsewhere.
