REMNANTS OF ANDREA COMING NORTH WITH FLOODING RAIN AND THUNDERSTORMS... COOL AND UNSETTLED INTO NEXT WEEK...

Here is a table showing the Tropical systems that have has some affect on East Surry over the past 9 years.

As you can see its not that rare to get a remnant tropical system up here in June... It happened with Tropical Storm Barry in 2007.... In fact that year... May was rather cool and wet, not unlike this past May. Will the summer of 2013 be like 2007? That year we ended with powerful and damaging remnants of hurricane Noel smashing ashore in Nova Scotia. Lots of tree damage and power outages here on the Blue Hill Peninsula then.

So tomorrow will be a wet day with over 1.5" of rain likely. I could see some places picking up over 2 to 2.5" with some flash flooding possible. There will be some thunderstorms around to. Winds should not be damaging with gusts under 30mph along the coast.

Look for drier weather on Sunday before more rain returns for next week. Temperatures will remain below normal for the next 7-10 days. A chilly June is setting up!
