Today's Weather: A Wet Start To The Day

High pressure slipped offshore overnight and low pressure is moving through the area with some rain and some potential wet snow north and west. If snow does accumulate, it would be on the order of a coating to an inch or two, especially north of Route 2 and into Southern New Hampshire.

The rest of us will see anywhere from a quarter- to three-quarters-of-an-inch of rain with, most of it ending mid-afternoon Thursday. Temperatures are going to be cool Thursday — only in the forties — so if you're looking for a way to get outside and break up the day a little bit, you'll have to use the rain gear and the umbrella.

Milder air will stream northward overnight tonight, with temperatures holding in the low 40s all night long. This will set us up for a very mild day on Friday. A lot of clouds will be present but temperatures will reach between 65 and 70 degrees.

This weekend, colder weather moves back in. Temperatures will stay in the 40s for Saturday and Sunday.

Look for some moderating temperatures later next week, as things get back into the 50s. That's normal for the second half of March.
