A thunderstorm passed through the area Saturday evening featuring some heavy, but brief rain, plenty of thunder and some lightning. There were also a few brief batches of impressive winds accompanying the storm. Another storm with blasts of thunder and lightning made a quick appearance after dark on Sunday evening that aught the attention of many area residents.

While summer isn't exactly over yet on the calendar, it is for school-age students who will be heading back to school as early as next Monday in Sunapee and Tuesday in Newport. Looking back, it was a fast-moving summer.

Wednesday's weather outlook was on the dismal side for anyone planning outdoor activities. Rain, thunder and lightning came through around 7:30 a.m. and all three were expected to arrive again later in the day along with high winds.
