An ocean storm pinwheeling east of New England will throw showers and a gusty wind at Connecticut, Rhode Island and Southeastern Massachusetts late in the workweek. It may stay mainly dry Thursday morning, but showers will back in from east to west Thursday afternoon.
The rain will be accompanied by 15-30 mph wind – with stronger gusts in eastern Massachusetts. Flooding is likely along the eastern New England coast for several high tide cycles.
Rain continues Thursday night and showers will spin through for most of Friday, too. It will be cool with temps in the mid 40s on Thursday, and low to mid 40s on Friday. If it was a couple of months ago, this would have been a Nor’easter with snow.
The weather gradually improves this weekend, and it looks much nicer early next week. Look for highs in the mid to upper 40s on Saturday as the storm drifts away. Sunday will be close to 50°. We’ll make a run at 60 on Monday and Tuesday as it stays mainly or all dry. Showers cannot be ruled out Sunday night or Monday morning.
Showers are possible on Wednesday, with a better chance of rain on Thursday. After getting to near 60 early in the week, the rest of the week should feature highs in the 50s.
