Discussion:

In case you didn’t know – Massachusetts averages 2-3 tornadoes per year.  Between Sunday and Monday, we had TWO tornadoes touchdown in the Bay State – an EF-2 in Revere and an EF-1 in Dalton.  Quota filled.  Hopefully, we are done for the rest of the year!

Forget tornadoes – not a single raindrop in the forecast today!  Overall, it’s going to be another pleasant day with a mix of sun and clouds and highs in the upper-70s.

I can’t rule out a chance of a couple of pop-up showers and thunderstorms Thursday afternoon, but they will be pretty isolated, so some people will be lucky enough to stay dry all day.  Shower threat aside, expect partly cloudy skies tomorrow with highs in the upper-70s.

There will be another slight chance of a couple of pop-up thundershowers Friday afternoon, but I want to emphasize, it’s only a slight chance of isolated showers/storms!

Saturday will be dry with a mix of sun and clouds, but I have introduced showers and storms into the forecast for Sunday..
