Since individual lines and clusters of thunderstorms have limited life spans and change character constantly, forecasting whether it will or won't rain at any one time this weekend is difficult at best.

It does look warmer for the weekend, but every time the warm air tries to extend into New England it gets chopped down. There could be more showers at times Sunday and early next week as forest we can tell. If any forecast gives you a headache, why not take a friend's advice: Take two aspen; sequoia in the morning.

When looked at this way, you can see two distinct flows in the East: one from the south with moisture, and one from the west that is dry.

A cold front from the Midwest will reach the East Coast Wednesday. In the meantime, a large pocket of unseasonably cool air aloft will spread eastward. It will interact with the very warm and humid in place in the I-95 corridor to cause rounds of drenching showers and thunderstorms between today and Wednesday.
