It was a very busy Sunday across New England with widespread heavy rainfall, flooding and even an EF-0 tornado in North Brookfield. The tornado had wind speeds of about 85 mph and lasted about 3 minutes.
As the tornado threat decreased, the cases of heavy rain and flash flooding increased. A total of 1 to 2 inches of rainfall over a large area was observed. Total 3 to 5 inches of isolation also occurs.
Dryer weather is in effect for Monday. It will be a hot and humid day with the highest temperatures in the 80s to almost 90.
The temperature will gradually cool down a bit as we move through this week. The afternoon high will be mostly a combination of mid-80s lows after Monday. As temperatures cool down a bit, the chance of rain starts to return to the area. The range and intensity of rain this week will not match what we experienced today.
