    Are latest tornado outbreaks a sign of a new pattern?

    Before the possible showers this weekend I wanted to write about the wild weather of Sunday and Monday across New England.

While there might be some increase in clouds late Saturday, overall the today and tomorrow’s weather is going to be ideal. High pressure stays in control during this period, there will be low levels of humidity and […]
