Weather Alert: Rain, Some Heavy, Through Tonight


So far, it’s been a pretty soggy weekend. And the off/on rain will continue through this evening, heavy at times. Watch for ponding on area roads and some street flooding. We’ve already received 0.50 to 1.0″ of rain across the region. One thing we don’t need is this rain, but we’ve got another 0.5 to 1″ expected through tonight. Fortunately, it looks like we’ll stay mostly dry through Halloween.

The rain will continue through the evening…

…possibly heavy at times. A rumble of thunder is not out of the question…especially over southeastern Massachusetts and on the Cape/Islands.

The rain should begin to taper off after midnight.

Winds will become gusty through the day and especially this evening. Over Southeastern Massachusetts and the Cape/Islands, especially, winds could gust between 30 and 40mph, but the winds do diminish by Sunday morning.

Lows overnight will be in the low 50s.

The skies should partially clear by dawn with a west and southwesterly wind bringing in some drier air.

For Sunday, it looks mostly dry for Halloween! Expect a blend of clouds and sun with a passing shower, but most of the day (and evening) looks dry.

It’ll be milder-than-average with highs in the low to mid 60s.

While a stray shower is possible early evening on Sunday, most spots stay dry with temperatures in the 50s.
