Forecast: Unsettled week lies ahead

Unsettled weather has gripped the areas weather pattern once again, after the remnants of Tropical Storm Andrea provided the area with 4-5 inches of rainfall. Multiple perturbations and individual disturbances will move through the Northeast US over the next several days, providing the chance for unsettled weather essentially throughout the week. After a prolonged period of clouds and showers on Monday, some clearing is expected on Tuesday with temperatures warming into the upper 70’s to near 80. By the afternoon, however, scattered showers and storms will return to the forecast. There could be a break in the action by midweek (Wednesday most likely), before chances of more steady rain return by Thursday and Friday.

Rest of Today (Monday): Cloudy with showers. Rain could be heavy at times. Highs in the lower 70’s. East winds around 10 miles per hour. Chance of precipitation 100%.

Monday Night: Cloudy with showers likely. Some thunder is also possible. Low temperatures falling into the mid 60’s. Southeast winds around 10 miles per hour. Chance of precipitation 100%.

Tuesday: Partly cloudy early and warmer with highs in the upper 70’s to lower 80’s. Showers and thunderstorms developing by afternoon. West winds around 10 miles per hour. Chance of precipitation 60%.

A look ahead: A break in the unsettled weather is possible around the middle of the week (Wednesday).

Behind this disturbance, early indications are that next weekend will feature dry but cooler than normal conditions.
