The sky weeps from midterm week

Although the weather here in Boston will bless us today with one more day of sunshine and ridiculously high temperatures, don’t expect it to last. Temperatures will start heading down towards the weekend and into next week, with showers Friday morning and Sunday afternoon. So, instead of waiting for your day off to go out... is taking that midterm outdoors really such a bad idea?

The impending rain would help with the rain deficit in the Boston area, but rain activities in other parts of the country may be catastrophic. The South is bracing for another round of severe weather with thunderstorms, damaging winds, large hails, and strong tornadoes. This system came after a strong weather system last week that devastated communities in the South with 49 tornadoes. This weather pattern is typical for the South during spring when storm systems intensify with the help of warm and humid air from the Gulf of Mexico.
