Thanks for choosing necn for your weather. A heavy burst of rain is on the way later today, but before it gets here, we need to warm the temps up.
First batch of light precipitation may fall as a mix or freezing rain in Northern and Central Vermont and New Hampshire.
For snow, you’ll have to head north of Bangor, and even then, it won’t make it there until tonight. Meantime, highs will make it back to the 40s and 50s later today over the rest of New England with warmest temps along the coast from Connecticut to Cape Cod.
It’s here the winds will gust to near 40-50 mph late into the evening as the warmer air tries to bust through New England. This warm front is an efficient rain-maker too.
After the last drops fall, we could see 1-2 inches of water in Southern New England. Downpours will be most frequent in these spots. Next wave of rain will arrive on Wednesday afternoon as another warm front tries to push in.
This time around, a solid 1-2 inches of rain is likely in most of New England. It’s because of these two major weather makers that we can say (for the first time in months) that a serious dent will be put in the drought. Drive safe in the downpours this evening!
