Rain moves in ahead of today’s warm up. Early morning showers on Wednesday (before8 am) will give way to a mild afternoon with a mix of sun and clouds. High temperatures will approach 50 degrees in some towns! But the warmth only lasts for one day. We slowly start chipping away at the high temperature for the remainder of the week. By Thursday highs are in the middle 40s. By Friday and Saturday high temperatures will be in the upper 30s and lower 40s.
There is still a chance for some rain and/or snow on Sunday from a wave of low pressure staying well southeast of New England. An easterly wind blowing off the relatively milder ocean means rain is most likely (if anything) for the shore and a mix inland. For now it also looks like a weak storm which means less precipitation. 5 days out this is all still very much up in the air. The storm could miss entirely. Or it could intensify more and track closer to the coast. So take all my latest thoughts with a grain of salt. Every day that we get closer to the event, we'll get a better handle on everything.
