Another round of steady rain is headed our way Wednesday evening as another wave of low pressure moves into southern New England.

Rain will taper off to showers Wednesday night and patchy fog will develop overnight. May continues to feel and look more like April, with temperatures in the 40s and raw conditions.

Thursday is the pick of the week, as a high pressure system builds into the region. It will be mostly sunny, pleasant with a fresh breeze and highs into the mid to upper 60s south and low to mid 50s north.

Friday stays mainly rain free as we start the day with full sunshine, but clouds increase during the afternoon as another area of low pressure approaches from the Ohio River Valley. Highs will be in the upper 50s to low 60s, which is slightly below normal for this time of year.

The forecast this weekend remains a bit challenging. We continue to track the possibility of a coastal storm developing and passing to the south and east of Nantucket on Saturday morning. This system will increase the cloud cover and ramp up rain chances, especially for eastern New England, with an onshore wind keeping coastal towns near 50 while 60s inland. There is also cold air aloft, which will trigger pop-up showers during the afternoon, with daytime heating.

Luckily, it pulls away in time for Mother’s Day, giving us a blend of clouds and sun and a late day chance for showers due to a cold front that will cross New England Sunday night.
