Rain Is Back
Posted by Chris Lambert
It was nice to see some sun today, but the dry weather is quick to slide out as rain showers work in this evening. For the most part, it will be an all rain event, however, there may be just enough cold air north of route 2 in Worcester County and in SW New Hampshire, that this storm starts as a brief mix of snow, sleet and freezing rain. Accumulations there would be under an inch, but a few slick spots are possible after midnight, into the pre-dawn hours. For the rest of us... it's plain ole' rain. Rain will be steady after midnight and continue to be heavy at times until about 7AM tomorrow. The heaviest rain early tomorrow morning will be across the MA/NH border.
After the early morning steady rain, we'll get some dry stretches between scattered showers through the rest of the day and into the evening. Temps jump up to near 60 for many in the Boston area, points south and rise into the 50s north of the city. Although, they'll hold in the 40s across southern NH, where the warm front has a tough time getting through.
Heading to the Pats game? Early tailgating weather is in the low 60s, and holding at least into the upper 50s through the game. Dry stretches are possible during the tailgate and game time festivities, but I'd still prepare for scattered showers. Most of the showers won't work through until midnight and there after as the actually cold front heads in.
Cooler and drier weather rules the rest of the week.
