    Early Showers Thursday, Highs in the 70s

    Thursday: Early showers to mostly cloudy skies, a few breaks of sun late. Highs in the 70s, 60s coast. Overnight Thursday Night: Partial clearing, areas of fog. Lows in the 50s. Friday: Variable clouds. Highs in the 70s. (Published Thursday, Sept. 13, 2018)

    Wednesday’s downpours resulted in localized flash flooding from Connecticut to southeastern Massachusetts, where two-to-three-inches of rain fell in a short time.

    Those downpours, associated with the same front that arrived a week ago, diminished to lighter showers, fog and drizzle last evening.

    But lone more disturbance fired up a few more showers late at night. Those late night downpours left rain, along with fog and drizzle, to start our day in Southern New England before drier air pushes in later.

    Plenty of sunshine in Northern New England by Thursday afternoon and perhaps pushing partial clearing into Eastern Massachusetts by the day’s end.

    Meanwhile, Major Hurricane Florence will make landfall in the Carolinas Thursday night into Friday morning. The storm will drop flooding rain along with battering waves and wind there but sending large swell northward with 6-to-eight-foot waves reaching our South Coast now through the weekend, along with a risk for rip currents.

    Great weather moves in for the weekend with highs around 80 and the next chance of substantial rain after that is not until the middle of next week.
