Forecast: More Rain Later Today, But A Warmer And Drier Thursday Approaches

This article is more than 2 years old.

After a nice rain event Tuesday, round 2 is on the way for today. One difference between the two storms is temperatures. While Tuesday started off quite chilly, today is quite mild for the final day of November. Of course, this has been a mild month so far, so it's not a surprise.

The rain becomes steady and heavy late today and overnight. Once again we are looking at a significant rain event, but this will only get us up to normal for this month, but not really do anything to the drought.

Total rainfall will average from just under to just over an inch.

Our new rainstorm is thanks to a new storm moving up from the south. This system has some very warm air associated with it, and there could be a few rumbles of thunder this evening through about 1 a.m.

Tomorrow is a mild day and a much improved day for the first day of December. This is also the start of meteorological winter. This is the period of the coldest three months of the year. I do expect temperatures to slowly fall into the weekend with Sunday being the chilliest of the next five days.

If you are wondering if there is going to be snow in northern New England, the answer yes, but you will have to go quite far north to find it. Some areas of northern Maine will see over a foot of snow between yesterday's event and the one tonight. Ski country will likely see some snow at the end of this, but still not a big storm.

Rainfall will generally be three-quarters to an inch and a half later today and overnight. These numbers are computer-generated averages. (Dave Epstein/WBUR)
