Friday August 6th

Forecast: Today will be sunny throughout all of the Berkshires. Highs will be in the low to mid 80s. Lows will be in the lower 60s. There will be some patchy fog in the morning through early afternoon.  

Tomorrow will be partly sunny and humid. Highs in the mid 80s. Fog in the morning. Lows in the lower to mid 60s.

Then on Sunday we can expect partly sunny to partly cloudy conditions with scattered showers and thunderstorms. Highs in the lower 80s. Lows in the lower 60s. 
Air quality forecast: Today and tomorrow should have relatively good air however if you are very sensitive to the air quality or have breathing problems you may experience some dizziness or coughing. It will not be unhealthy but if you are sensitive you should monitor if you need to stay inside.  

Tropical: We have two areas to watch. 

1. A tropical wave interacting with a trough of low pressure south of the Cabo Verde Islands is producing thunderstorms and showers. As it moves east of the Cabo Verde Islands it may develop into a tropical depression. I give it a medium chance of development.

2. The next area is a trough of low pressure that is producing a few showers and thunderstorms. As it moves east of the Lesser Antilles it may slowly develop into a tropical depression. I give it a small chance of development.

Rain: Saturday night through Thursday there is a chance for scattered showers and thunderstorms. I give it about 45% chance of happening. The rain will not mess up your whole day. One day you may not experience rain while other days you may. Usually the showers and thunderstorms will be in the afternoon to early evening. 

UV and light index: Today will be sunny so put on your sunscreen and sun lotion if you will be in the sun. I give you about 1 hour and 15 minutes to burn if you are in direct sunlight with no protection.

 Wind: 5 miles per hour with gusts up to 10 miles per hour.

Hazards: No large hazards expected however thunderstorms can bring localized flooding and lightning.

Notable amounts: No notable amounts of precipitation.

Far forecast: This week will be sunny to cloudy. Next week will be hot and humid with scattered showers and thunderstorms. The week after next week will be warm and slightly humid, with some rain possible.

Heat Index: Today and tomorrow will be hot and humid. Drink water and if you feel you are getting too hot go somewhere cooler. 

Anything to mention: Have a super fantastic day!
