Overall, it should be a good weekend for some outdoor activities in the Berkshires.  You should be good-to-go if your hitting the lake, the golf course, the biking trails, hiking or just hanging in the backyard.  But always keep an eye on the sky and your favorite weather app (with radar) as a thunderstorm can develop quickly in New England during the summer months.

Saturday is expected to be the better of the two days with sun and a high near 70ty.  Sunday we could experience a shower of thunderstorm but we will also see the sun for a good portion of the day.  The long-range forecast is looking good to start the week with more shower activity mid-week.  Below is the long-range National Weather Service forecast for the Berkshires…

LOOK: Here are the 50 best beach towns in America

Every beach town has its share of pluses and minuses, which got us thinking about what makes a beach town the best one to live in. To find out, Stacker consulted data from WalletHub, released June 17, 2020, that compares U.S. beach towns. Ratings are based on six categories: affordability, weather, safety, economy, education and health, and quality of life. The cities ranged in population from 10,000 to 150,000, but they had to have at least one local beach listed on TripAdvisor. Read the full methodology here. From those rankings, we selected the top 50. Readers who live in California and Florida will be unsurprised to learn that many of towns featured here are in one of those two states.

Stacker used data from the 2020 County Health Rankings to rank every state's average life expectancy from lowest to highest. The 2020 County Health Rankings values were calculated using mortality counts from the 2016-2018 National Center for Health Statistics. The U.S. Census 2019 American Community Survey and America's Health Rankings Senior Report 2019 data were also used to provide demographics on the senior population of each state and the state's rank on senior health care, respectively.
