One Down, One to Go
Posted by Jeremy Reiner
Round one of today's rain is departing stage right (as of 7am) and now we have several hours of just mainly cloudy skies before round 2 arrives. This latest storm is coming at us in two pieces--sometimes that happens, like today! During this lull you can plan on lots of clouds (some sun too) and humidity thanks to the 2" of rain the ground couldn't quite absorb last night.
The second round of rain will not be like the first in terms of size & coverage. It will take on a scattered nature. This means that outdoor activities later today have a chance of getting completed. Where these scattered showers do pop up they are likely to be locally intense and even some lightning too. The area most likely to see the showers/t-storms will be from Plymouth toward Worcester and then up toward Orange (and locales west of that line). Metro Boston & the north shore are areas most likely to just stay cloudy for the remainder of the day.
Tomorrow will be mainly cloudy with some sun around--especially during the afternoon hours. This is an unsettled pattern we are in so even though there are no storms in New England tomorrow, there will be a fair amount of clouds. By Thursday another storm will approach by afternoon & bring another batch of rain to the region--especially after 4pm. That batch of rain is with us Thursday night & into Friday morning. Much of Friday after 9am is dry though. The weekend does look brighter and warmer. Yay.
