A fast-developing storm moving out of the Southeastern United States will bring rain to Southeastern New England on Sunday afternoon and night. The storm track is still not certain, and, at this point, it highly favors rain instead of snow for RI, SE MA, and most of CT. It will be a steady cold rain, with highs in the upper 30s to low 40s. The rain should begin by sunset and will last through most of the night. Snow or mixed precipitation is possible in interior Southern New England and Northern New England.
