World and Nation


With no hurricanes currently active in the Atlantic, today’s weather description will focus on New England’s current weather. For the next couple days, there will continue to be cloudy, rainy weather. Last night there was the unusual occurrence of temperatures rising overnight; a consequence of a warm frontal passage. This frontal passage is responsible for the warm, humid weather today, with a chance of showers throughout the day. With rain that could be heavy at times as well as strong winds, it will certainly not be the nicest of weather. Tomorrow will also be cloudy with a slight chance of showers, especially in the evening. By Thursday, a strong low pressure system is forecast to track into the Northeast, bringing tropical moisture with it, although there is still uncertainty in the timing. The combination of high levels of precipitable water and lift means that there is the potential for heavy rain and urban flooding from Wednesday night to Friday morning.
