After a quite Sunday, we’re going to start the week on a messy note. Rain and thunder are expected for the morning commute and while kids are waiting for their buses.
Our Monday weather system can be seen as a swirl in the clouds over the Great Lakes. It’s a pretty potent weather system that will continue to work it’s way toward Southern New England Sunday night and early Monday morning.
Widespread rain and lightning has already been detected from Ohio into Pennsylvania.
Sunday evening will be dry with thickening clouds.
We’re expecting that precipitation to arrive in Southeast New England after 3AM.
Rain could become briefly heavy with some isolated thunderstorms in the area between 4 and 8AM.
The morning commute could be slowed by the rain. Kids will need somewhere safe to wait for the bus, like in a car or in your house as lightning is possible Monday morning.
Most of the rain will be gone by Monday at noon.
Once this rain passes, the next chance of rain will be on Friday…Halloween looks dry and cool.
