High pressure firmly in place over Maine is supplying plenty of dry air into the low levels with light NE winds. I am expecting the morning clouds to begin to break and give way to increasing afternoon sunshine. Temps are starting off warmer thanks to the increased cloud cover overnight. Highs will be climbing into the mid 60’s inland and remain in the lwr 60’s at the coast with the onshore winds.
A strong storm system that has been responsible for the severe weather outbreak over the South-Central and Southeast United States will make its way into Southern New England tonight bringing with it heavy rainfall, strong to damaging winds and the potential for minor coastal flooding at the time of high tide late Saturday Evening through early Sunday Morning..
