8/1/18 Update

SPC outlook posted below. During the afternoon look for thunderstorms to develop, particularly in Western Mass after about 3pm. Some of these storms may be strong, and there could possibly be a spin up out that way. Radar will need to be monitored this afternoon.

As far as our temperatures go, look for temps in the low 80’s with a high dewpoint yet again. (Euro high temps below).Screen Shot 2018-08-01 at 8.38.26 AM

PWAT values (loop below), which are a good proxy for how much moisture there is in the atmosphere, will remain high for the foreseeable future. Some indications that around 8/11, we may see this tropical flow decrease.
