This Week’s Hazards

A marginal risk for severe weather has been highlighted over our area for Wednesday evening. This is the lowest of the five severe-weather risk categories. I’ll keep a close eye on this. The main threat would be a damaging straight-line wind gust. Right now, I’m not very concerned.

Five-Day Outlook

Five-Day Weather Forecast 

Monday – Tuesday: Mostly sunny. Light winds.

Wednesday: Increasing clouds and warm. Showers possible by afternoon, increasing in coverage overnight.

Thursday: Mostly sunny and cooler.

Friday: Mostly sunny.

Forecast Discussion

The severe weather threat for Wednesday evening/overnight looks minimal. In fact, moisture return may be too limited for even thunder. The forecast is trending downward for rainfall and now guidance is suggesting only 0.10 – 0.5 inches of rain.



On This Day 

1780 – Great Hurricane of 1780 kills 20,000 to 30,000 in the Caribbean, hitting Barbados first. Atlantic’s deadliest recorded hurricane.

1804 – A famous snow hurricane occurred. The unusual coastal storm caused northerly gales from Maine to New Jersey. Heavy snow fell across New England, with three feet reported at the crest of the Green Mountains. A foot of snow was reported in the Berkshires of southern New England, at Goshen, Connecticut.


Drought Outlook 

Drought conditions worsened over the past week for much of the state. Unfortunately, there continues to be no significant rainfall in sight, so drought conditions are liable to worsen even more over the coming week.
