Heavy rain, cooler temperatures on Thursday


After giving much of the region a soaking, the rain will taper off Thursday as the nor’easter passes off to the east. Unfortunately, this does not indicate that we are in the clear. That same storm system will head toward New England where it will intensify and meander around before it finally heads out to sea. As of result of the slow departure, the winds up around here on Friday and keep the risk of showers during the afternoon and evening hours. 

The steady rain is in process of tapering off Thursday evening. There still be the risk of a shower around during the overnight hours, but the odds are that it will stay dry. The winds will also start to kick up from the northwest bringing temperatures down into the lower 40s.

There could be some sun to start Friday, but the atmosphere will remain unstable as the storm stalls out in New England. Clouds will be on the increase and several scattered showers will develop from midday onward until the sun sets in the evening. It will also be a windy day with gusts to around 30 mph from the northwest keeping temperatures from climbing no higher than the lower 50s.

The storm system will finally head kick out to sea Friday night and a weak area of high pressure will arrive for the weekend allowing things to settle down a bit. There will still be a fair amount of clouds, but the sun will help bring the temperature back up. Highs will be in the upper 50s on Saturday and climb into the lower 60s by Sunday. 

A weak disturbance could bring the risk of a shower late Sunday night and the chance will linger into Monday. Otherwise, it will be partly sunny with highs in the lower 60s.
