Low pressure is diving down from Central Canada with a series of fronts and several waves of showers and storms this weekend.  My biggest concern for today is the potential for severe thunderstorms to fire up later this afternoon.  A lot will hinge on the amount of sunshine we see.  My feeling is that it won't be a lot, but the best chance to see any sun will be in Western and Southern Maine, along with Central and Southern New Hampshire.

Severe Storm Risk

Any storms that do form could include damaging wind gusts, hail and downpours capable of temporary street and parking lot flooding.

Morning Timeline

I'm not too concerned about the severe threat this morning, most of us will see just showers.

This afternoon, however, with some warming and the arrival of the coldfront, we'll really need to keep an eye on the sky.

Afternoon and Evening Timeline

Tomorrow won't be any better.  The low will be swirling overhead and more wet weather is expected.  Especially during the afternoon.

So, you want some good news?  Thought so.  There are strong signs for classic Summer weather to build in next week.  Lots of sunshine, warm and sticky conditions will arrive just in time for the 4th of July.  I expect most of us to see highs in the 80s for most of next week.  But, I wouldn't be shocked if a few spots hit 90 next Thursday or Friday.  It's about time!
