The closer to the coast you are, the drier you will be thanks to high pressure off shore. Despite a little light rain early, a good portion of the day should remain dry with temps in the mid 70′s. Hard to completely rule out showers completely today for eastern sections…as a few showers could break off the main batch out west from time to time. Either way, a cloudy, humid and tolerable Sunday if you have to be outdoors in eastern MA.
Best chance of any thunderstorm activity now will be from 6pm-12 am, and any storms that form could contain very heavy downpours, frequent lightning, damaging winds and some small hail. The atmosphere is very ripe in extreme Southern New England (parts of CT, RI and SE Mass and farther south towards the Mid Atlantic). So those would be the most likely areas for any severe weather later this evening.
A gorgeous day! NE winds will keep it cooler at the coastline in the Lwr-mid 50′s. Away from the onshore winds, temps will continue to warm through the day into the Lwr-mid 60′s, near 70 west.
Round one( the Norlun Trough) is moving through Metrowest in a weakened state this morning. It is still providing moderate bursts of snowfall, reducing visibility down to mile at times…and enough for a general coating to 1″ of snow. Roads are mostly wet…but a slushy accumulation is gathering in spots
