Forecast: Rain Possible Through Friday, Sun Returns This Weekend

Tuesday's nor’easter continues to spin around, bringing clouds and some showers or even periods of steady rain. Temperatures are too warm for frozen precipitation. The storm will continue to influence our weather.

We saw 2 to 3 inches of rain Tuesday, but there won’t be much more Wednesday. The ground is now quite saturated and will set up well for spring. There will be little sunshine the next three days, but also periods when we won’t see showers. It won’t be very windy as the storm spins itself out.

Bring an umbrella if you walk — showers could pop-up anytime Wednesday, although they'll be nothing akin to Tuesday's torrential rains.

Over the weekend, drier air will push the remainder of the storm away, and we'll see more sunshine. Temperatures will be seasonable. Without any storms, this weekend will be great for holiday shopping.


Wednesday: Rain showers. Some steady rain near the coast. Highs in the 40s.

Wednesday night: Cloudy and not very cold. A few showers or snow showers inland. Lows 32 to 38.

Thursday: Cloudy with a risk of showers. Highs in the low 40s.

Friday: Changeable skies with a rain or snow shower possible. Highs in the lower 40s.

Saturday: Partly sunny with a high near 40.

Sunday: Mostly sunny with highs in the lower 40s.
