It's already been a wild day of weather with flash flood warnings, tornado warnings and some wind damage. A moist and tropical air mass has combined with sunshine and some energy with the jet stream to produce several waves of intense storms. Some areas have seen sunny breaks and a few sprinkles while other areas have experienced monsoonal like rain causing roads to temporarily flood. The rest of the afternoon and evening will see more of the same type of highly variable weather where some of you experience big storms and others just very uncomfortable levels of humidity.

I was having a rare cup of coffee this morning with a friend (I am more a tea guy) and discussing what to blog about this afternoon. He quipped, that there wasn’t much to say about nice weather which is certainly mostly true. However, all this dry weather is going to quickly become an issue as the foliage is rapidly emerging on the trees and water is being used by all the plants at a terrific rate.

Every once in a while the weather becomes so perfect it’s almost hard to believe this is New England. The next week is going to be one of those periods where you might quip, “Why can’t it always be like this?" Cool mornings and mild afternoons with plenty of sunshine are going to repeat itself over and over into Friday. There won’t be much difference in how high or low temperatures get each day.

Severe weather affecting much of the East Coast this afternoon and will continue overnight. Currently, the heavy rain across the mid-Atlantic region where 1-4" of rain will fall is moving towards the north. This evening, that area will likely see some flooding issues. Locally, winds will continue to increase this afternoon and become gusty from the south overnight. This strong wind will transport very warm and humid air into the region. Temperatures remain around 70F much of the night. You might need to put on the air conditioning again if you don't like sleeping in muggy weather. A tornado watch has just been issued for Berkshire county here in southern New England, and thunderstorms are a distinct possibility in other areas.I'll be updating information about this storm and others in the future on Twitter at @growingwisdom
