Even though we have been dealing with a drought in New England for the last few years, it has become much more noticeable this summer.  Even though we have only had a few days where it was really hot, it has still been a very dry spring and summer.  Places that normally have lush, green grass, have only had brown patches of grass.  Grandma is having problems keeping her flowers beautiful.  We're even hearing that some people's wells have dried up.

We know that it has been rough, but it does look like there is a little relief on the way.

According to the National Weather Service and WMTW, we have a rare summer Nor'easter on the way this week.

Even though we'll have clouds, and maybe a few showers, throughout the afternoon on Tuesday, the real rain will roll into the state on Wednesday morning.

It will be windy and rainy throughout the day.  Much of the state will see highs in the mid to upper 60s and wind gusts of up to 30 miles per hour.

The weather will be with us throughout the day on Wednesday, Wednesday night, and early Thursday.  By Thursday afternoon the sun will be back.

It looks as though we're getting all of the nasty weather out of the way so we can have a beautiful weekend.  The great news for people who have big weekend plans is that the weather for Friday, Saturday, and Sunday is going to be amazing.  It will be sunny with highs in the 80s all three days.
