The Week Ahead: St. John Valley weather for July 5 – July 10, 2016
Unsettled weather much of the week
Tuesday, July 5 – Sunday, July 10, 2016
A stalled frontal boundary will drift south across the Valley Tuesday into Wednesday with a chance for showers and afternoon/evening thundershowers. Another low pressure system and associated fronts will move eastward from the Great Lakes and push through southern New England Thursday into Friday. Yet another low pressure pushes eastwards from the Great Lakes Friday into Saturday triggering more showers and thunderstorms across the region through Sunday. High pressure to the west of the Valley will begin to build in Monday despite persistent cloudiness with clear skies expected by Tuesday.
