Showers will become more numerous this evening as a weak area of low pressure passes south of the region. Not much is expected in the way of rain, anywhere between 0.10” to about .25”, with the highest amounts along the south coast of New England.
Showers will slowly shut down from west to east overnight with a few wet snow flakes mixing in across the higher elevations, but not enough to substantially accumulate on the ground.
