PINPOINT WEATHER ALERT IN EFFECT FOR WEDNESDAY NIGHT

WEDNESDAY NIGHT WEATHER IMPACTS

Wednesday starts off quiet with plenty of sunshine.

A storm system will be developing over the next 24 hours. Moisture in the Deep South will work with moisture and energy across the north central United States to create a coastal storm through Wednesday.

WEDNESDAY MORNING 8AM

Clouds work in through the day with some light showers possible by late day (after 5PM). Highs Wednesday afternoon will be in the low 60s.

WEDNESDAY AFTERNOON

While a few showers are possible during the Wednesday evening commute, a much greater chance arrives after 7PM. Widespread rain and strong winds will impact our area later Wednesday night.

WEDNESDAY 6PM: Leading edge of the rain starts to move in

WEDNESDAY 11PM: Windswept heavy rain likely. Strong gusts along coast

This storm, unlike last week’s storm, will be a quick-mover. The storm center should be to our north by Thursday morning, so the worst of the rain should be gone by daybreak. However the winds will remain very gusty all day Thursday ..35-45 mph

THURSDAY MORNING 8AM: Storm moves into northern New England, but strong wind gusts will impact the entire area.

1-3″ of rain expected and some damaging wind gusts. Strong winds through the day on Thursday, too, with lingering lighter showers. Street and poor drainage flooding are possible later Wednesday night. Strong winds could cause isolated power outages through Thursday.
