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.
