A nice weekend in the Berkshires but humid with a chance of thunderstorms both Saturday and Sunday.  The start of the week could bring record-breaking temperatures as the temps will be on the rise.  Because the showers and thunderstorms will be intermittent in only some areas, make sure your garden and flowers are watered daily.  We have had a lack of precipitation over the last couple of weeks.  With the lack of rain grass and brush are very dry so take extra caution if you are using you fire pit this weekend.  Keep you fire under control and have a hose or water source nearby.  Below is the latest forecast from AccuWeather, the WUPE Weather partner.
