The remains of what was once Hurricane Florence moved over New England into The Gulf Of Maine Tuesday. With the system, we saw widespread heavy rain and thunder, responsible for areas of flash flooding and even a couple of spots of river flooding as well.
Rain amounts exceeding four inches brought deep puddles on area roadways, causing emergency responders to help rescue those from vehicles disabled in deep water in roads in Central and Southern New England.
A few thunderstorms generated wind gusts past 55 mph with a few spots of tree damage taking down power lines. As the remnants of Florence continue its track into the North Atlantic, high pressure from Canada is pushing cooler on Wednesday morning.
Patchy fog and drizzle early give way to a rather dreary and raw feeling fall day with drizzle giving way to stubborn clouds and highs only in the lower to middle 60s. Some spots will struggle to hit 60 east, to the 70s in southwestern areas.
Clouds will break a bit more Thursday, but crisp autumn air will hold firm until some showers at night into Friday morning mark the return of milder air.
Right now, the weekend looks fair with highs in the 70s Saturday and 60s Sunday, with fall air holding firm into the middle of next week in the exclusive Early Warning Weather 10-day forecast.
