A widespread, heavy rain continues thru the overnight hours
EXPECTED RAIN AMOUNTS NOW THRU FRIDAY EVENING: 1-2 inches of rain expected
During the pre-dawn hours of Friday rain will start to mix with and change to wet snow across higher elevations of central and Western MA as well as northern CT. A mix of rain and wet snow is also expected in northern and western RI (after 1AM) and continue into early Friday morning.
It will be an unseasonably cold and dreary Friday with lingering lighter showers. While most areas just see cold rain, some mixing with wet snow is still possible in northwest Rhode Island . Highs only reach the mid 40s and north-northeast winds will still be blustery with gusts to 30 mph.
Skies stay cloudy and a bit damp through early Saturday morning, with some slow improvements from west to east in the afternoon and evening.
