Unsettled for the Weekend

September 27, 2012; 7:27 AM

Thursday, 9:30 a.m.

In the video, we look at prospects for the coming weekend and early next week in the Northeast and Great Lakes. Also, we visit the latest version of the forecast for 2 p.m. on Oct. 10.

One feature that will affect the weekend weather will be a strengthening trough aloft that heads for the eastern Great Lakes. It will trigger showers, perhaps some thunderstorms and even waterspouts over the Great Lakes as it moves through. This prog map shows where it could be early Sunday morning:
