Showers and Storms Return Tonight and Tomorrow


There are a few chances of some showers or possible thunderstorms.

A more widespread, heavier rain moves back into the region by the middle of the afternoon, then turns heavy at times by the evening. Some sun is even possible early before the clouds take over.

Wednesday: Partly cloudy, and summer like. Expect readings to start in the 40s to near 50 degrees. At least Sunday will be warmer with a high in the mid 60s? Not to worry. Mother's Day is looking just fine.

Today will start off cloudy with rain developing in the morning for areas west of the CT River.

Rain begins to move into southwestern New Hampshire after 4 p.m. The other threats include frequent lightning and heavy rainfall, which will create unsafe driving conditions at times.

Sunday night: A 30 percent chance of showers. Out of the past 5 years, only last year had rain lasting into Mother's Day afternoon. It'll be rather wet for the next 24 hours or so. The afternoon will be damp, with scattered showers, mist and drizzle. Winds range from northeast to northwest, and peak around 15 to 20 miles per hour. Highest gusts could hit 50mph on the Outer Cape and Nantucket. It will be a chilly day with a gusty wind; highs will mainly be in the upper 40s to lower 50s. We will also enter a more moist weather pattern with chances of showers and thunderstorms as we approach mid-week next week. When it's all said and done, much of the area could see more than one inch of additional rainfall from this system.

Sunday: Heaviest rain ends early in the morning.
