After a Monday full of sunshine and high temperatures in the 40s, a storm system moving from the Great Lakes to southeastern Canada will push increasing clouds towards New England overnight, creating a ring around the just-passed full moon.
The high tide earlier Monday had some minor splash-over and flooding in those flood-prone areas of coastal New England. Tuesday afternoon’s high tide will likely provide another round of minor flooding in those locations. We're also tracking the next round of rain by Tuesday afternoon.
The old saying, "ring around the moon – rain soon," will hold true this time, as clouds thicken Tuesday. The wind stiffens out of the south-southeast with evening gusts over 40 mph at our south-facing coasts, and showers arrive from west to east Tuesday late morning through afternoon, accompanied by temperatures rising through the 40s and into the 50s by evening. Rain will continue overnight Tuesday night, accumulating half-an-inch to one inch and lasting into the Wednesday morning commute before wrapping up by late morning and giving way to drier and cooler air.
In fact, the new air arriving late Wednesday onward is the start of a new, cooler weather pattern that will bring a chance of some accumulating snow late Friday and Friday night, depending on the track of an offshore storm, and another chance of a wintry mix by late Tuesday of next week.
There's no question the weather pattern at the end of our exclusive Early Warning Weather 10-day is about to feel more wintry, and may look like it, too!
