The upper trough that’s been sticking around for the past couple of days will once again produce scattered afternoon showers and isolated thunderstorms today, before finally exiting to the east.

These features will bring rain Saturday night into Sunday with additional thunderstorms possible Sunday afternoon as the cold front moves through. Drier weather is expected to return to begin next week, with more chances for rain again by mid-week.

About Today’s Photo:
We’ve had a crew of common mergansers hanging around our cove for the past week or so. They look fully grown, but their behavior tells me that they’re probably this year’s batch of teenagers. Between dives for food in the waters of the cove, they’ll often skitter about on the surface of the water motorboat style like young chicks do. They’re quite entertaining to watch.
