Afternoon storms may bring hail, strong winds to Mass.

Afternoon storms may bring hail, strong winds to Massachusetts

PRETTY ACTIVE WEATHER DAY COMING UP. IMPACT WEATHER HERE ON YOUR WEDNESDAYS. WE’VE GOT A COUPLE OF ROUNDS OF RAIN. THE FIRST ONE COMES THROUGH MID-MORNING WITH RAIN AND MAYBE SOME ISOLATED RUMBLES OF THUNDER. THE SECOND ROUND THIS AFTERNOON 4 TO 8 P.M. THAT IS HIT OR MISS. NOT EVERYBODY IS GOING TO GET IN ON THAT ACTION, BUT THERE IS THE POTENTIAL WITH THAT SECOND ROUND OF A FEW STORMS TURNING SEVERE WITH SOME HAIL AND GUSTY WINDS, YOU CAN SEE IT’S A LOW RISK MARGINAL HERE. ONE OUT OF FIVE ON THE SCALE FROM THE STORM PREDICTION CENTER THAT IS ASSOCIATED WITH THE COLD FRONT. STILL WAY BACK TO THE WEST. THIS WARM FRONT COMING THROUGH THIS MORNING THAT IS GOING TO BRING OUR FIRST ROUND OF RAIN IN BETWEEN THE TWO. WE’RE TALKING ABOUT A HALF AN INCH TO AN INCH OF RAIN FOR A LOT OF US, A LITTLE BIT LESS DOWN TOWARD CAPE COD. SO THIS IS COMING ON THROUGH WITH SOME HEAVY RAIN THIS MORNING. YOU CAN SEE THAT BAND STRETCHING FROM SOUTHERN VERMONT ALL THE WAY DOWN TOWARD LONG ISLAND AND ON THE SOUTHERN END IS WHERE IT IS MOST ACTIVE NOW, WITH THE LIGHTNING STRIKES. A LOT OF THESE HAVE DIED OUT AS THEY CROSS FROM NEW YORK STATE INTO MASSACHUSETTS. SO WE’LL WATCH THAT FOR YOU. COMING ON THROUGH FIRST ROUND LINGERS THROUGH ABOUT LUNCHTIME. THEN THERE IS A BREAK BEFORE WE GET INTO THAT SECOND ROUND OF HIT OR MISS STORMS THIS AFTERNOON. TEMPERATURES WILL BE HELD BACK WITH THE CLOUDS AND THE RAIN. BUT MOST OF US IN THE LOWER 60S, SOME 50S ON CAPE COD, WHERE THE SUN DOES POP OUT, THOUGH OUT IN WESTERN MASSACHUSETTS, THAT’S WHERE WE COULD JUMP UP INTO THE LOW TO MID 70S. AND THAT IS WHERE THE STORMS COULD BE MOST SEVERE AS WE GET INTO THE AFTERNOON. SO HERE’S THE TIMING OF THAT FIRST ROUND COMING ON THROUGH ARE GOING TO BE ABSOLUTELY POURING 9 TO 10:00 THIS MORNING IN AND AROUND THE BOSTON AREA, UP THROUGH THE NORTH SHORE, THE NEW HAMPSHIRE SEACOAST GETTING DOWN TOWARD THE CAPE, CLOSER TO 11:00. BUT BY NOONTIME IT IS GONE. AND HERE’S OUR BREAK IN THE ACTION THROUGH MIDDAY, EARLY AFTERNOON. THERE’S THAT SUN TRYING TO POP OUT IN THE WESTERN PART OF THE STATE, BUT THAT IS ONLY GOING TO FUEL THAT NEXT ROUND OF STORMS WHICH WILL BE HIT OR MISS. 4 TO 8 P.M. AND THEN EXITS. SO WE’RE LEFT OVERNIGHT WITH MOSTLY CLOUDY SKIES, MAYBE SOME AREAS OF FOG DEVELOPING UPPER 40S TO LOW 50S. TONIGHT. TOMORROW IS A MOSTLY CLOUDY DAY. JUST A FEW SHOWERS, LATE DAY, ESPECIALLY SOUTH OF THE PIKE. MUCH OF THE DAY WILL BE DRY WITH A NORTHEASTERLY WIND, THOUGH WE’RE ONLY IN THE UPPER 50S AND LOWER 60S TOMORROW, SO IT’S ON THE COOLER SIDE ON THURSDAY. BUT IF YOU HAVE OUTDOOR ACTIVITIES PLANNED THURSDAY, THERE ISN’T A WHOLE LOT HAPPENING. SPOTTY LIGHT SHOWERS SOUTH OF THE PIKE LATE IN THE DAY. AND THEN LOOK WHAT HAPPENS. BY FRIDAY MORNING, A NEW WAVE OF RAIN IS COMING ON IN AND THIS IS GOING TO BE A LITTLE BIT MORE WIDESPREAD AND STEADY AS A LOW PRESSURE TRACKS TO OUR SOUTH. AND WHAT THIS WILL DO IS PULL IN KIND OF CHILLY AIR OFF THE OCEAN. SO A RAW NORTHEASTERLY WIND GIVING A REAL RAW FEEL TOWARD THE END OF THE WEEK. AND THE START OF THE WEEKEND. WHAT’S GOING ON AS WE’VE GOT A DIP IN THE THE JET STREAM HERE DEVELOPING OVER THE NORTHEAST. AND THIS UPPER LEVEL LOW IS JUST GOING TO KIND OF SIT OVER THE NORTHEAST THROUGH THE WEEKEND. IT WILL KICK OUT, BUT NOT UNTIL EARLY NEXT WEEK. AND SO THAT’S WHEN WE TURN DRIER AND WARMER WITH 70 BACK BY TUESDAY. SO A LITTLE UNSETTLED FOR MOTHER’S DAY THIS WEEKEND WITH STILL THE CHANCE OF SOME SPOTTY SHOWERS
