Forecast: Wednesday Features Heavy Rain And Chilly Temperatures

Rain is the forecast through tomorrow evening, but the steadiest rain and heaviest rain will fall today through early tomorrow. Temperatures will continue to be unseasonably cool with highs in the lower and mid 40s today.

Some of the rain could be quite heavy, especially west of Boston this morning. The trend will be for a steadier rain today so the evening commute looks like a very wet one, and the Red Sox game is likely to be postponed.

Early Thursday morning the rain will still be heavy but then become more showery in nature during the day. At times it will be breezy and just cloudy and then a few moments later there might be a round of heavy downpours and showers. I expect the shower activity to be numerous tomorrow.

Temperatures on Thursday will be significantly warmer and it will be somewhat humid. In contrast to the ocean chill much of this week it will feel rather summer-like.

Friday is still looking like a nice day with an abundance of sunshine and breezy conditions.  Highs will reach the 60s. The weekend also looks mostly on the dry side with a mix of clouds and sunshine. A shower is possible Sunday, but not a steady rain and it will be typically mild with highs in the upper 50s to mid 60s during the weekend.

Wednesday: Periods of rain and very cool with highs in the low to mid 40s.

Wednesday night: More rain, could be heavy at times with patchy fog. Temperatures in the 40s rising to the lower 50s by morning.

Thursday: Heavy rain early, then clouds, breezy and much milder with scattered showers and thunderstorm. Some storms could be strong. Highs in the mid 60s to near 70.

Friday: Lots of sunshine and breezy. Highs in the mid to upper 60s.

Saturday: Partly sunny with a high of 61 to 66.

Sunday: A mix of clouds and sunshine. A quick shower possible. Highs of 59 to 64.
