What’s the Deal for the Weekend?September 26th, 2012 at 8:55 am by Michelle Muscatello under General Talk, Tony's Pinpoint Weather Blog
We’ve been mentioning it in our futurecast for days–that showers will be threatening our area this weekend. As we close in on the second half of the work week, we’re becoming more confident that the weekend will, in fact, be unsettled. An upper-level area of low pressure will be sitting over the eastern Great Lakes this weekend, cut off from the flow of the jet stream. With it essentially “stuck” to our west, it will bring bursts of energy through New England that will lead to bouts of rain starting later Friday and lasting through Sunday or Monday. The challenge over the next few days will be to try to nail down whenthose bouts of rain occur. It can be a tricky task more than 24hrs out.
The bottom line is that, while it won’t be raining all the time this weekend, there will likely be some interruptions in any outdoor plans from the rounds of showers that are expected. Either make a back-up plan, or pack your umbrella.
