Today is likely to be the darkest, bleakest day of the next 10 - with an onshore wind flow locking in widespread clouds, drizzle and generating increasing waves that may bring some coastal splash over around an 11 PM high tide.
Of course, the air will stay cool all day - highs around 50 with "feels like" temperatures 40-45 - and a new, incoming disturbance from the south will deliver a new batch of rain late day Thursday through Thursday night in Eastern New England.
Friday dawns with clouds and patchy drizzle, but a rising cloud deck will break apart just a bit and those breaks of sun will afford a temperature rise to around 60 inland, with 50s at the coast, owing to an onshore wind flow.
A break in the action between disturbances should limit Friday showers to Connecticut and Western MA, but new showers will blossom Friday evening and night across Southern and Central New England, slowly moving north through the overnight.
Saturday brings a bit of a break before the next round of atmospheric energy, meaning lots of clouds, a little sun and temperatures around or over 60 for many before scattered showers pop up during the afternoon.
A progressive disturbance and attendant cold front on Mother's Day will mean a period of 3-5 hours of showers - morning west, and midday east - which will cap high temperatures in the lower to middle 60s.
Behind that disturbance, a couple days of fair weather and some milder midweek air moves in next week.
