BOSTON — A blocked pattern of weather left much of southern New England cloudy, cool and wet this weekend. Today that pattern relaxes its grip somewhat with more in the way of sunshine. There will be some clouds, but it’s going to be a much better day than we have seen in several days. Temperatures will be seasonable, mostly in the mid and upper 50s.
A cool flow off the water will bring a rather chilly day to the region tomorrow. There won’t be any rain, but temperatures will be as much as 10 degrees cooler than today, and with the wind coming off the water it will feel raw and damp by the close of the day. Although some sunshine will be around early tomorrow, the trend is for increasing clouds as we get ready for a mid-week rain event.
Wednesday into Thursday rain will overspread the region. The timing of the rain isn’t exactly known right now, but the morning and evening commutes on Wednesday and the morning commute on Thursday are the most likely ones to be wet. The rain will be heavy at times during this storm with 1 to 3 inches of rain bringing street and small streams some flooding. The rain will end Thursday and a return to sunshine and milder air is in the forecast for Friday. Next weekend is looking mostly dry at the present time.
Monday: A blend of clouds and sunshine. Highs of 55 to 59.
Monday night: Cloudy and cool. A brisk wind. Lows of 38 to 43.
