By Monday, rain returns to the forecast as the remnants of former Tropical Storm Gordon approach New England, from southwest to northeast. Showers will impact the morning commute and become widespread by lunch hour time. The rain will continue into Tuesday and that will allow 24-hour rainfall totals to range anywhere between an inch to almost 2 inches especially over Western New England.
Highs on Tuesday and Wednesday will be back into the 80s with higher humidity. Drier air then filters in behind the front on Wednesday, allowing for sunshine to return by Thursday.
By mid-week, all eyes will be on Florence as it gets closer to the U.S. Even though a direct impact on New England is unlikely, large waves and dangerous rip currents will be impacting the coast.
