I don’t expect a lot of rain this morning, but occasionally, we’ll have a passing sprinkle or shower.  That’s the case through midday, before the rain chance picks back up mid to late afternoon.  Our wet weather later today will be moving in thanks to a wave of low pressure developing along a front that gets hung up here through the evening.  That’ll allow for a steady rain across eastern Mass, with the highest rain totals across the Cape and Islands.  

Steadier rain likely picks up around and after 2PM near I-95, east toward the coast. That rain continues through midnight tonight with close to 1/2" possible around Boston and perhaps 1"+ across the Cape/Islands.  Near and west of 495 (north of the Pike), we won’t see much more rain other another 1/10" or so as there will be a sharp gradient in rain totals from southeast to northwest. Rain starts tapering off just after midnight, with most towns, except Cape/Islands, done with the wet weather by 2am (4am for the Cape/Islands). If there’s enough precipitation still left over eastern Mass around 10pm-2am, it’s possible that snow flakes/sleet pellets mix in before the whole storm tapers off.   

Behind this front and storm, cold air comes pouring in Monday and Tuesday with highs barely above 40 degrees despite the sunshine!  Lows Monday and Tuesday night fall deep into the 20s, even a few mid to upper teens in the coldest burbs!  Brrrr. Monday night football tickets?  Plan on kickoff temps run at 29 degrees at Gillette. 

While the cold air comes in, so does dry weather, and that dry weather will prevail through the end of the week as high pressure builds in.  Winds turn more southeast to south for Thanksgiving and Black Friday, allowing for milder air heading into the holiday. 

Enjoy your Sunday!
