While most of us will just see waves of rain showers on Tuesday, snow will be falling across parts of northern New England by Tuesday night and Wednesday morning.
The wet weather Tuesday will come and go — meaning it won’t be raining all day in any given spot — but the day will have an unsettled feeling. While there will still be a few spot showers in southern New England on Tuesday evening, the general idea is that we’ll tend to dry out a bit moving into Tuesday night. That means Game 1 of the World Series will go off, perhaps with just a few minor interruptions.
Temperatures during the day will be in the 40s and 50s.

The area of low pressure bringing the showers Tuesday will move into the Canadian Maritimes into Wednesday, allowing cooler air to wrap in behind it. That will flip precipitation over to snow in the mountains of Vermont, New Hampshire, and Maine by the Wednesday morning commute. The snow will continue into those spots during the day, amounting to 1 to 3 inches in far Northern New Hampshire and parts of Central Maine. The mountains of Northern Maine will pick up more like 3 to 6 inches.
In Southern New England expect just a lingering spot shower on Wednesday with a mix of sun and clouds. Highs will be in the 40s and 50s. It will be breezy as well.
A mix of sun and clouds settles in for Thursday and Friday, with highs in the 40s both days.
The weekend turns more interesting as a coastal storm moves northward towards New England. That is likely to bring a period of wind and rain sometime Saturday into Sunday. The exact track will determine how much rain and wind arrives, and if there will be any mixing or snow well inland. Tides will also have to be watched, since those are elevated this weekend.
