Closer to Average Temps; Rain Update

Good morning!

With increasing clouds, expect highs to range between 48-61, with much of the region being in the 50s.

Let’s take a look at the incoming storm…again…this will be very brief.

Locations Impacted

Southern New England, as well as southern New Hampshire and coastal Maine.

Timing

Scattered showers begin in SNE this evening. The steady rain comes in overnight tonight, peaks mid-morning Wednesday, and then winds down Wednesday evening.

Rainfall

Expect rainfall amounts mainly on the order of 0.25″ to 0.5″, with some spots in eastern MA seeing isolated amounts near 0.75″, where isolated heavy rain is possible.

Wind

Gusty NE winds up to 25 mph are likely, with gusts to 40 mph near the eastern and southeast MA coast and 50 mph along it, which has prompted a Wind Advisory for coastal MA.

Summary

Low impact system, merely a nuisance. It’ll blow leaves around, yes; it might blow away loose objects outside near the MA coast. The wind and rain in eastern MA may cause some minor pains during the Wednesday morning commute. However, even if there was a big commute tomorrow (Veterans’ Day means many people will be off the roads), this would still be relatively low impact, with only isolated heavy rain.

Have a great Tuesday!

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!
