Weather: Rain Rules


Rain rules

By Gerard Roe
Staff Meteorologist

A large cyclone migrating eastwards dictates our weather in the short term. A little clearing can be expected this morning as the warm front passes. But the reprieve is short lived; in advance of a cold front winds will blow briskly from the southwest, clouds will thicken, and there is a good chance of a sprinkle. Temperatures will rise unseasonably towards the low sixties. Colder air follows in behind, and as the cyclone redevelops out over the ocean, rain and snow showers will cover New England on Wednesday.

Today: Cloudy and blustery. A few sprinkles of rain. Strong winds from the southwest. High 63F (17C).

Tonight: Rain likely. Low 38F (3C).

Wednesday: Rainy. Snow to the north and west. High 43F (11C). Low 25F (-4C). Rain stopping by nightfall.

Thursday: Clearer. High 44F (11C). Low 25F (-4C).
