Tuesday Night-Wednesday Rain Event Update

Good evening!

Apologies for this being really late – homework on top of my great-grandmother turning 85! But, here it is…. an update on the forthcoming event. This will be quite brief and abbreviated.

Locations Impacted

This currently looks like a deal for MA/CT/RI as well as southern and east-central NH and southern Maine. Vermont, Northern Maine, and Northern and West-Central NH look to be mainly off the hook here.

Timing

Rain moves in mid to late evening tomorrow, and winds down late afternoon to mid evening on Wednesday for the areas affected.

Rainfall

Expect widespread rain up to one half inch (mainly up to .25″ along the northern and westernedge of rainfall). Rainfall amounts between 0.5″ and 1″ will be the rule in coastal Maine, coastal NH, eastern MA and RI; localized amounts over 1″ are possible in Eastern MA. Isolated bouts of heavy rain are possible, primarily in eastern MA.

Wind

Expect gusty northeast winds up to 25-30 mph for the majority of southern and eastern New England, with gusts to 40 mph possible for parts of interior eastern MA; coastal eastern and southeast MA may see gusts up to 50 mph which has prompted a Wind Advisory for those coastal regions.

Have a good night!

Hello! I'm Nathan Coram, a 19 year old meteorology student and weather geek, and am going into my junior year at UMass Lowell as a meteorology major. I am the current Vice President of the UML American Meteorological Society Local Student Chapter. Prior to at UML, I attended the Dracut school system for my K-12 years, having graduated from Dracut High in 2018. I first got into weather with the December 2008 ice storm, which knocked out my electricity for 4 days. I had no idea how it could be raining and becoming ice immediately, and how rain can knock out power. (Now I do - warm layer aloft, cold air at surface). But I didn't really get into it until the heat of July 2010 and specifically a few severe weather events during that month, followed by the year 2011, which featured several high profile weather events. Since then I have had a growing interest, and am hoping to make it into the meteorology field, preferably with NOAA/NWS. But for now, I'm blogging here, helping with the UML Weather Center social media, and tweeting about the weather on my own account as well. Thanks for visiting!
