Today's Weather: Another Winner Before The Clouds Return

After a gorgeous Monday we're looking at another fairly nice day for Tuesday. Temperatures will get back into the lower 60s over inland areas and staying in the 50s over Cape Cod and the islands.

High pressure has kept us dry the past couple of days, but will relinquish its grip late Tuesday night as a new weather system moves into the region.

If you are headed in the evening, you'll probably notice an increase in cloud cover. Eventually, those late-night clouds will yield some light showers by the morning. I'm not expecting a lot of rain with this next system. We'll get anywhere from a tenth to perhaps a quarter of an inch of rain.

Rain will fall early Wednesday and end by afternoon. Look for generally about a quarter inch of precipitation. (Courtesy: COD Weather)

Most of the showers will be done by the middle of Wednesday morning, but don't expect clearing skies. Another weather system is already close on its heels.

Showers will return later on Thursday. Temperatures will also be fairly chilly both Wednesday and Thursday. Overall, it won't be great weather to be outside on either day, in spite of the fact there will be some dry hours.

We'll see a return to sunshine on Friday, but we won't get back the mild air. Highs will once again be near 50.

The final weather system in this series will arrive sometime later Sunday, but we may get through much of Easter without precipitation. I'll have more on the timing of this system tomorrow
