Rain expanding across New England comes ahead of a push of warmth and humidity we won’t feel today, but will unquestionably notice overnight tonight and Wednesday.
For now, cool temperatures and rain combine for a raw day, with the heaviest rain likely to fall from central and western Connecticut to western Massachusetts and central New Hampshire – dropping over 2 inches of rain in parts of Connecticut where street and poor drainage flooding is possible, over an inch farther north with big puddles and highway hydroplaning at times, and less than an inch in Eastern New England, but still a soaking rain.
A southeast wind takes over this evening, becoming south overnight tonight and gusting to 40 mph at times with localized gusts to 50 mph at the Maine Midcoast, transporting warmth and humidity into New England for Wednesday daybreak temperatures around 70 and highs around 80!
Scattered showers will be possible through Wednesday, though widespread, long-lasting rain is unlikely until a round of thunderstorms sweeps from northwest to southeast, late day to late evening, respectively, marking a resurgence of cool fall air.
Thursday through Sunday will deliver fair conditions with fall temperatures in the 60s to around 70, with the next chance of substantial rain not until the middle of next week in our exclusive Early Warning Weather 10-day forecast.
