The late fall gloom continues to bring in the cloud cover with patches of fog/drizzle and some waves of rain through the first half of Friday.
The coastal flooding potential continues through the high tide around midnight and Wednesday afternoon as we have high astronomical tides and onshore flow and waves of 3-6 feet. Low lying roads near the shore will see a little water again.
Tonight, any clear patches will cloud back over and a few showers move in while lows stay in the upper 40s to low 50s. The spotty showers remain in the forecast throughout the day Wednesday as we see a steady southeast and onshore flow. High temperatures increase to the low 60s despite the clouds and rain.
Halloween brings us more tricks than treats again this season across New England as a potent low pressure system passes just northwest of us for the end of the week. The showers become more numerous Wednesday into Thursday morning and waves of rain continue as the warm front sits just north of the north country.

We turn breezy with the south wind in the afternoon, to windy by trick-or-treating. Then around 8 p.m. to midnight the wind continues to ramp up ahead of the cold front. Gusts could be 40-50 mph from the south along the south coast and in higher terrain around midnight through Friday morning.
This may lead to pockets of damage and outages through Friday morning. The wind changes direction from the west, northwest Friday afternoon, helping to clear us out and cool us down.
The weekend will bring some much-needed sunshine as highs stay in the low to mid 50s both days. Sunday there may be a slim chance for a shower as a storm develops offshore way to the south. Plus with the northwest wind on Saturday and Sunday there may be some mountain snow showers.
Next week our temperatures stay in the 50s and mid-week rain will be the theme again.
