EARLY MORNING RAIN WEDNESDAY:

An off-shore storm system passes well southeast of New England on Wednesday bringing rain for the first half of the day. While most areas will see “plain” rain, there is a slight risk of freezing rain for areas well inland just before dawn. Some slick spots are possible on the roads not only in northern RI but also in northeast Connecticut and especially Worcester County Mass during the pre-dawn hours.

There may be some pockets of freezing drizzle well inland away from the coast, drive with caution

If you’re traveling into central or northeastern New England on Wednesday morning, be aware that the risk of freezing rain will linger longer and so will the threat of icy roads. In those areas a “Winter Weather Advisory” has been issued for slick travel through noon in the areas shaded in purple

Rain likely for the AM commute, but it will come to a quick end by early afternoon with some sunshine returning later in the day (after 2pm)

WEDNESDAY MORNING FORECAST 8:00AM

WEDNESDAY MORNING FORECAST 11:00AM

WEDNESDAY AFTERNOON FORECAST 2:00PM

WEDNESDAY EVENING FORECAST 5:00PM: Clear skies, colder with increasing winds

It will be cool and dry Wednesday evening through late Thursday.

CHRISTMAS FORECAST

Christmas Eve day looks mainly dry with a chance for a few flurries or light snow showers lingering towards dawn. This will be very minor and unlikely to cause any travel issues. A better part of Friday looks dry.

Later Christmas Eve Night (after Midnight) into Christmas Day, we’ll be watching the track and timing of a disturbance that will move through New England. Right now the track would support mostly rain in Southern New England with snow in central and northern New England. Stay tuned!
