Light rain from overnight has moved out as an ocean storm stayed well east of Cape Cod. Unfortunately, it was too far away to produce any beneficial rain for our area. The highest totals were near the coast, where 0.1″ to 0.2″ fell.

As the system lifts northwest toward coastal Maine, it takes most of the rain with it. However, a few light showers could still make it into southern New England this afternoon and evening. Otherwise, it will be mostly cloudy and mainly dry.

It will be cooler than normal, with highs in the low to mid 70s. Winds along the eastern Massachusetts coastline will be gusty, but they’ve stayed rather light in RI.

Meanwhile, on the Cape and along the eastern Massachusetts coastline, a “High Surf Advisory” is in effect and dangerous rip currents are likely.

A few lingering showers are possible this evening and early tonight and then it turns drier with gradual clearing by dawn. It will be breezy and cool with lows in the upper 50s to low 60s.

Thursday will be breezy and more seasonable with highs in the upper 70s to low 80s. A stretch of much warmer temperatures begins on Friday and lasts through the weekend.
