Today is a later post because I have been monitoring the Tropical Remnants of Fred and Tropical Storm Henri and how they will impact us.
Forecast: Tonight will be cloudy in the upper 60s. Heavy rain likely north of the pike and showers likely south of the pike.
Tomorrow will be rainy with some heavier showers. It will be in the upper 70s.
Then on Friday we can expect mostly cloudy to partly sunny conditions. Highs in the mid to upper 80s.
Air quality forecast: Great air today and tomorrow.
Tropical: We have three areas to watch.
1. The Tropical Remnants of Fred will impact our region tonight through tomorrow night. The main threat will be heavy rain with localized flash flooding. Winds could gust to 30 mph at times and an isolated tornado can not be ruled out.
2. Hurricane Grace is heading to the Yucatan Peninsula around Mexico and once it passes it will continue through Mexico possibly into the Pacific Ocean.
3. Tropical Storm Henri will become a hurricane. I do not want to panic anyone but there is a possibility the storm may directly impact us as a hurricane. The National Hurricane Center has put Berkshire County in the cone for Tropical Storm Henri. Impacts, timing, and intensity are still uncertain. However a more westward track can be seen in model runs today compared to yesterday. Be prepared for a hurricane but do not panic, it is called the cone of uncertainty for a reason.
Precipitation: Tonight through tomorrow will bring 1 to 2 inches of rain. Isolated amounts of 3 inches are possible the farther north in Berkshire County you live.
UV and light index: This week will be very cloudy you do not need to worry about the sun.
Wind: 10 to 15 mph with gusts to 30 mph.
Hazards: Heavy rain, lightning, gusty winds, isolated flash floods and an isolated tornado.
Notable amounts: No notable amounts.
Far forecast: This week will be cloudy and rainy. Next week may have some tropical weather. The week after next week will be cooler and moist.
Heat Index: Humidity and heat will be on the rise, it may be sticky outside.
Anything to mention: Have a good night.
