Another midweek storm system is bringing rain to Southern New England Tuesday night. It’s a fast-mover and the rain will end by dawn in Connecticut, and by 8-9 am in Rhode Island. It may take until about 10 am for the rain to move east of Massachusetts. Unlike last week’s storm, this one will not bring strong winds.
Look for some sunshine by midday on Wednesday, and the temperature should bounce into the mid 60s during the afternoon with a drying northwest breeze occasionally reaching 20 mph.
Expect more quiet weather on Thursday and Friday. Lows will be in the 40s with highs in the 60s. There should be more clouds on Friday than on Thursday. Showers could clip northern CT on Friday, but will most likely stay away from the Shoreline and RI/MA.
The first half of the weekend looks dry and cooler with highs in the 50s on Saturday. Unfortunately, it looks like Sunday will feature some rain. It’s unclear how quickly it will arrive, but the day could be a washout if it gets in by 8 am or so. That’s not great news for anyone heading to Gillette Stadium for the Patriots game Sunday late-afternoon.
Of course, the weather gets back on track early next week as we head back to work and school. Look for 60s again Monday and Tuesday with dry skies. There are signs that another system will bring rain in the late workweek – possibly as soon as Thursday.
