    Weather Forecast: Clouds Remain After Early Showers

    Wednesday night: Few more downpours. Areas of fog. Mid 60s. Thursday: Early shower, then cloudy. Low to mid 70s. Friday: Developing sun. Upper 70s.

    (Published Wednesday, Sept. 12, 2018)

    Wednesday’s showers have nothing to do with Hurricane Florence, but rather a feed of energetic disturbances aloft that are interacting with humid air at ground level.

    That air is producing scattered showers, downpours and even some embedded thunder. The absence of any sun will mean high temperatures struggle to get beyond the lower 70s Wednesday. However, Northern New England sees drier weather with some breaks of sun and therefore, should rise well into the 70s.

    After daytime showers diminish Wednesday evening, another late night disturbance will likely fire them up anew, leaving some showers for Thursday morning in Southern New England.

    The new showers will arrive before drier air pushes in during the day, breaking plenty of sun out in Northern New England by afternoon. It may perhaps push a 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 flood-inducing rain along with battering waves and wind there.

    It will swell northward, with six-to-eight-foot waves reaching our South Coast by Thursday into Friday, raising the risk for rip currents. Great weather moves in for the weekend with highs around 80 and the next chance of substantial rain after that not until the middle of next week.
