Forecast: Scattered A.M. Showers, With Heavier Rains Coming This Evening

This article is more than 2 years old.

After a spectacular Monday, things have taken a real turn this morning.

Today, skies will be cloudy with a few scattered showers. The steadier rain will hold off until after the morning commute.

That big full moon lots of you saw Sunday and Monday will also bring high tides to the region this morning. There is a coastal flood advisory posted, and some shore roads — especially the ones that typically flood — will get water on them before and after high tide rolls in. The advisory is up from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. today. There could be some beach erosion, too.

The rain is heaviest this afternoon and evening. I am expecting total rainfall to end up around an inch. Some places will remain under that amount, while others go over.   The map below shows total rain through the evening commute. However, there will be more precipitation after the evening commute, and more northern areas will likely fill in with rain.

As we progress through the evening the rain will taper to showers and then some clearing will ensue. I expect Wednesday to be a day that may start with some clouds, but the trend will be for more in the way of sunshine, and it will be quite pleasant.

Look for highs getting well into the 50s to perhaps 60 degrees in a few towns.

The dry weather continues into the start of the weekend, before changes occur Sunday.

That day brings the chance for some rain and colder weather. Thanksgiving week looks to be an active week of storminess. I'll have better details in the coming days.
