We are tracking Tropical Storm Fay which will move by rapidly to our west overnight, between the Catskills and the Berkshires. The heaviest rain will be across parts of western New England and eastern New York where a Flash Flood Watch has been issued. Scattered downpours and thunderstorms with gusty winds will move through overnight.
WEEKEND IN VIEW
The storm will clear out quickly Saturday. Expect some sunshine and dry conditions through Saturday afternoon. It will be hot and very humid with temperatures in the mid 80s, a typical summer scorcher! It won’t be a bad beach day, but you should be aware that the ocean will be roughed up by the tropical storm even without a direct hit here. Rip currents and rough surf are likely, especially along south-facing beaches.
Sunday will be another hot day, humid too. Highs will reach the upper 80s inland and mid 80s for the coast. An isolated downpour or storm is possible in the afternoon, but most will stay dry.
In fact, the hot weather will continue through at least the next seven days!
The Drought Monitor was updated Thursday. Recent rain brought improvements lowering the ‘moderate drought’ across parts of MA, unfortunately the ‘abnormally dry’ conditions have expanded.
