SHOWERS END TONIGHT
Low pressure will gradually move eastward and pull the moisture that dampened the area today with it. A few showers may linger across southeast Mass before drier air works in from the north overnight. Expect decreasing clouds from north south. Overnight lows will fall back to the 30s inland where skies completely clear out and winds fall light. Low 40s are likely for Boston and southeastern Mass where clouds will linger through early Sunday.
DRIER & BRIGHTER SUNDAY
High pressure looks to win out over low pressure Sunday, meaning brighter and milder conditions will return. After some morning clouds, skies will turn mostly sunny and highs will claw back into the 60s in most areas. A developing sea breeze will mean 50s closer to the ocean.
COASTAL STORM NEXT WEEK
Low pressure will move out of the Carolinas and track northeastward toward New England on Monday. It will still be a mild day with highs in the 60s away from the coast with increasing high clouds. Rain could arrive along the south coast as early as Monday evening. Breezy onshore winds and steady rain will be likely Tuesday before the system weakens and moves away sometime Wednesday. Rainfall amounts may range from .50 to 1.5” leading to localized flooding and a rise in rivers.
Tides will be astronomically high (thanks to a new Moon) starting Monday night through Wednesday and with a persistent onshore wind, there is the potential for coastal impacts along the eastern coast. Splash over and minor coastal flooding are possible during the times of high tide.
BIG WARM UP LATE WEEK
Once this system moves out of the area, temperatures will rebound well above average with highs into the 70s to finish off the week.
