A warm front lifts northeast today, bringing along widespread showers, heavy downpours and even a few isolated thunderstorms.

I’ll have the full shower and storm timeline coming up on channel 4 at noon today. Paul will be covering all of Lisa’s shows this evening and I’ll be back with you bright and early on Friday morning.

Stay dry and have a blessed day!
