News weather

Scattered thunderstorms are not over.

The hot, scattered rainstorms that characterized this past week are set to continue. The past week brought heavy rain and thunder most days, creating a danger of flash floods. In the next few days, watch for more flash flood warnings due to heavy thunderstorms, at least until Sunday. After a summer of relatively light rain, this week reminds us that we live in New England. However, New England isn’t the only region to have heavy rains this past week. The same rain that hit Boston traveled up the eastern coast of the U.S., ruining beach trips everywhere. In Colorado, heavy rain and hail caused flooding and much hail damage in the mountain west. It's been a wet week.
