Posted May 22, 2017

STAYING RAINY, CLOUDY: Rain chances come back Wednesday with slightly higher winds at 5-10MPH.

Rain chances start tonight and stick with us for most of the week.

Rain will be on and off and will taper off toward late afternoon and evening. Saturday and Sunday should feature mostly to partly sunny skies and temperatures in the upper 70s but with a shower or t-storm possible. It will be very warm with highest temperatures of 15 to 20 degrees. The front then stalls over the area and areas of low pressure ride the front like a train on a railroad track. Showers and possible storms especially in the afternoon.

Finally, it is looking like a dry day on Friday! Periods of rain are likely on Thursday with lingering showers continuing into Friday.

More widespread showers and storms will continue into Wednesday with highs in the low 70's.

The unsettled weather will shift east and high pressure will build into New England from southern Canada.
