Storm That Prompted Tornado in Dallas May Bring Rain to Northeast

Temperatures will reach well into the 60s later in the week

Tropical Storm Nestor weakened considerably this weekend as it crossed the Southeast United States. Now, it's just a remnant, weak storm center spinning south of New England.

Nestor’s remnants came close enough to deliver some Sunday night and Monday morning showers to Southeast New England, but now it's zipping east and no longer a concern here at home.

Instead, we’re opening the door to a little more than 24 hours of dry weather with a small dome of high pressure that will inevitably give way to the strong storm that is currently in the nation’s midsection.

It's the same storm that is responsible for dropping a tornado on Dallas, Texas, and prompting Monday's evacuation of the Memphis, Tennessee, airport, where a tornado warning was issued.

The National Weather Service confirmed a tornado touched down in Dallas on Sunday.

When that storm arrives to the East Coast, it will be a significantly weakened version of its former self, delivering clouds on Tuesday. Sprinkles will be ramping up to showers Tuesday afternoon to evening, and rain overnight  that will depart early Wednesday morning.

Milder air sets in for Wednesday and Thursday with sunshine on a busy breeze, bumping temperatures well into the 60s both days before the next system marches through late Friday into early Saturday.

That system will drag a cold front that will spark some showers Friday night perhaps into Saturday morning, then deliver crisp fall air for the rest of the weekend with highs only in the 50s.

In fact, our exclusive First Alert 10-Day Forecast shows temperatures near or below normal from this weekend through early next week.
