    (Published Wednesday, Sept. 12, 2018)

    Though tropical storm Gordon's remnant moved out Tuesday night, leaving one-to-5 inches of rain, a weak stationary front is stalled overhead.

    Patchy fog and drizzle, with a few thunderstorms, Wednesday morning give way to a few sunny breaks with showers or embedded thunder to remain scattered through the day. There will be slightly cooler temperatures than Tuesday with highs in the 60s to low 70s with light variable winds.

    More of the same is expected Wednesday night and Thursday. Not much sun for us this week.

    Thursday night, Major Hurricane Florence will be nearing the Carolinas with Tropical Storm Force wind impacting the Carolina coast by morning. Landfall in North Carolina is probable by early Friday, but here at home, drier air will slowly be moving in from Canada.

    In fact, we’re looking at what will be terrific weather heading into the weekend with highs in the 70s and no rain expected as New England remains north of Florence by a healthy margin. However, large waves will emanate from the hurricane and impact our south-facing coasts.

    If any moisture is going to slide northward from the remnant of Florence to deliver enhanced rain to New England, it wouldn’t be until our next frontal system moves through during the early to middle part of next week in the exclusive Early Warning Weather 10-day forecast.
