Rain has been very persistent across southeastern Massachusetts since yesterday.

The rain, heavy at times, has overspread all of southern New England.

Many areas south of the Mass. Pike are already reporting rainfall amounts that climb above 2″, and the rain continues to fall.

The heavy rain, falling at .50-1.0″ per hour in some backywards, will pull out of southern New England between 9-10 a.m.

Then, believe it or not, we are going to ‘see’ some breaks of sunshine this afternoon.

In addition, a few spot showers/thunder will develop during the midst of daytime heating with some cold air in the upper levels of the atmosphere.

Highs will be slightly above normal in the middle 60′s to 70.

Friday will start off with a cloud/sun combo before introducing a midday pop-up shower/thunder.

Small hail can’t be ruled out due to the cold air aloft.  Highs will remain be near-normal in the middle 60′s along with breezy west-northwest winds.

Mother’s Day weekend is looking dry overall.

Saturday will be mostly sunny with highs into the middle and upper 70s. There will be more clouds entering areas far north and west of our viewing area as a warm front travels northward through northern New England.

Then, Mother’s Day will be partly cloudy with a slim chance of a late-day shower/storm. The reasoning behind the chance of a spot shower/storm is a weak, moisture-starved cold front.

At the moment, the best dynamics appear to be south of the Mass. Pike anytime after 2 p.m.  Highs will be mild once again in the middle 70s.

One Alarm Clock Away.
