Evening Rain Today

Good morning!

Today’s high temperatures will be between 37 and 57, with the usual NH/Maine high elevations being the coolest, and far southern New England being the warmest; under cloudy skies. Let’s dive right into this rain event:


Showers will overspread Southern New England plus Vermont and New Hampshire through late morning and early afternoon, and overspreading Maine in the early to mid afternoon. By the evening commute this evening, expect a widespread steady rain, with some heavy rain being a possibility. Through late evening the focus for the widespread showers will be over Maine, and there, the widespread rain will end in the mid-overnight hours (between 1 and 2 am). Scattered showers will continue through Friday and Saturday, mainly in Northern New England, but northern parts of Southern New England may see showers Friday night.

Precip Type

Snow showers possible Friday night-Saturday morning. Other than that, rain.


Expect up to 1″ rain with this system, again mainly today through tonight. Mainly steady rain, some heavy rain, to scattered showers for Fri/Sat.


For areas that see it, expect a trace to 1″; 1-3″ is possible in the higher elevations of northern New Hampshire. If snow showers make it down to northern parts of SNE, don’t expect any accumulation except maybe in the Berkshires.


Wind won’t be a big factor with this system – expect mainly gusts up to 20 mph for today.

Have a great day!

Hello! I'm Nathan Coram, a 20 year old meteorology student and weather geek, and am in 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 on Dracut Weather (also on Twitter and Facebook), helping with the UML Weather Center social media, and tweeting about the weather on my own account as well. Thanks for visiting!
