    (Published Tuesday, Sept. 18, 2018)

    One last day of summer sun and warmth brought record high temperatures (i.e. 86 degrees Burlington, Vermont) to parts of Northern New England Monday, ahead of remnant moisture of Florence with torrential rain Tuesday.

    Rain arrived around midnight and is now soaking our morning commute in much of southern and central New England, lasting through midday. However, it will never quite reach the North Country at all.

    For the rest of us, downpours and embedded thunder will be in store as the day progresses. These storms will drop exceptional rainfall rates that will produce localized flooding of streets and urban flooding, particularly during this morning and early afternoon as rainfall totals of 2-to-4-inches with locally higher amounts are expected.

    As rumbles of thunder move through, one or two thunderstorms may even turn damaging, as isolated tornadoes continue to develop in the remnant of Florence. By sunset, rain will be departing.

    However, a cool, moist flow of raw fall air will move in Wednesday, locking in gray skies and chilly temperatures that will struggle to get much past 60 degrees.

    Thursday should bring a return of some sun in a crisp air, with Thursday night showers marking the return of warmth by Friday.

    Right now, the weekend looks split with Saturday looking good, and Sunday not necessarily a washout, but quite possibly bringing some showers. High temperatures should drop to the 60s from Sunday into early next week in our exclusive Early Warning Weather 10-day forecast.
