HOUR BY HOUR: Conditions for the next 36 hours »

Another dry morning and early afternoon on Wednesday with lots of clouds. A wave of low pressure will travel along a nearly stalled front off-shore, bringing some showers by the evening which then turns into heavier rain Wednesday night

WEDNESDAY FORECAST 3:00PM: Cloudy skies, mainly dry in most areas, cool with temps in lower 70s

WEDNESDAY FORECAST 6:00PM: Cloudy cool…a few lighter showers along the coast

WEDNESDAY FORECAST 11:00PM: Widespread heavier rain with downpours at times. Potential for some localized street flooding during the overnight and pre-dawn hours of Thursday

The showers continues on Thursday morning, with highs in the mid-70s.

There is the potential for some heavy rain and downpours between late Wednesday and late Thursday. Parts of southeastern MA and RI could see 1-3″ of rain. However, there will be a sharp divide between the “haves” and “have nots” for rain, depending on how far north and west the front drifts. We’ll be keeping a close eye on the radar during this time. A slight wobble in the front’s position will make a big difference.

Rain chances diminish Thursday afternoon and night with clearing skies and warmer temperatures returning on Friday.
