Forecast Discussion

Low pressure will move to south of Long Island today, with a warmer and more moist air mass moving into New England. Mixed precipitation showers this morning will likely transition over to a period of steady rain by the afternoon as temperatures climb just above freezing. A strengthening onshore flow will enhance precipitation overnight, with temperatures falling off to near or just below freezing, and rain, freezing rain, and sleet all likely over the course of the night. Low pressure will continue to strengthen Wednesday as it moves northeast into the Gulf of Maine, with mixed precipitation during the morning changing back to plain rain as temperatures climb back above freezing. Rain could fall heavily at times late in the day and through Thursday, with flooding and flash flooding a concern for the neighboring ravines and tributaries.
