The heaviest rain to impact New England Monday morning tapers to showers and leftover drizzle then eventually only lingering patches of fog by the overnight.
With cloudy skies and an onshore wind for much of the day, some communities will challenge or set new records for the coldest high temperature on this date, and a chilly day surely will lend itself to a raw overnight with lows in the 40s.
Tuesday should start mostly dry and some breaks of sun are possible during the middle to late morning, but new showers will erupt from late morning onward, filling in more as the day wears on, in response to an energetic disturbance diving southeast across New England.
After more fog develops overnight Tuesday, Wednesday brings drier weather. An afternoon shower is still possible, but most of New England sees little more than a quick shower. With a north-northeast wind, Wednesday highs will be capped in the 60s with 50s at the coast, but as the wind shifts Thursday into the weekend, temperatures will climb back into the 70s.
Couple the milder temperatures with some sunshine and we’ll be making noticeable progress heading into the weekend, even if a chance of showers lingers with the jet stream nearby.
