Rain develops during the mid to late morning in Rhode Island and Southeastern Massachusetts, and it will become steady in the afternoon. Some heavy downpours are possible. A thunderstorm cannot be ruled out. Heavy rain will move past Southeastern New England by midnight. Stray showers, mist, and drizzle are possible after midnight. There could be locally dense fog.

The temperature on Monday will gradually climb through the 40s into the 50s by Monday evening. It will stay in the 50s Monday night as the wind shifts from the east to the south. 1-2″ of rain is possible. There may be some street flooding in poor-drainage areas, but river flooding is not expected. Peak wind gusts during the storm will be 30-40 mph near the coast, and 25-35 mph inland.

Better weather is ahead for Tuesday. After a gray and damp start, it will become partly sunny, breezy, and drier. Highs will be in the mid 60s with a 10-20 mph west wind. Wednesday looks decent. You can expect a blend of clouds and sun, and highs near 60.

It will turn cooler late in the workweek. Thursday through Saturday will feature afternoon clouds, and the chance of a few pop-up showers. Highs will be in the low to mid 50s, and lows will be in the 30s to low 40s.
