Cool high pressure leads the day with sunshine and temperatures starting out in the 30s, upper 20s north. Most of our Friday is dry, with fading sunshine, high in the 40s.
A developing low pressure center moving north from the Ohio River Valley brings heavy rain and the possibility of damaging wind at night. Right now, we are expecting a swath of 1+” of rainfall with areas up to 2” across central Massachusetts across New Hampshire into southern Maine.
Given the past 7 to 10 days have been wet in New England and rivers and streams have remained elevated, flash flooding may become an issue for some low-lying areas.
Across the higher elevations of New England, we get a few inches of snow before a change to rain, then back to snow early Saturday. Strengthening low pressure departs the region tomorrow afternoon and high pressure moves back in across the region.
Gusty west winds linger throughout the day with high temperatures near 50 degrees south early, cooling to near 40 degrees before sunset.
Cold high pressure from the Great Lakes settles in for the remainder of the weekend, resulting in a cool and sunny Veterans Day on Sunday with highs in the low 40s.
Looking ahead to the start of next week, Monday will feature mostly sunny skies with clouds increasing as the day progresses. High temperatures will crest into the low 40s south and mid to upper 30s north.
Another potentially powerful storm arrives Tuesday with more rain and snow, followed by a quick blast of mid-winter chill. More on that as it gets closer.
