We’ve been dry so far this week, but we’ve got some rain headed our way tonight. With the later sunset times (6:57p tonight), I’ve noticed more and more people going out for a walk in the evening. Any showers should hold off until after dark, so an evening walk/jog looks okay.
An area of low pressure moving through the Great Lakes will pass to our north through Thursday. Its associated fronts will bring some some rain showers to Southern New England Wednesday night and early Thursday morning. The rain likely won’t begin until after 8pm.
Initially, there could be enough cold air in place that the precipitation begins as some wet snow in our northern suburbs. The output from the RPM Computer Model shows this nicely….notice the little blip of blue in the high elevations of northwest RI. Any snow won’t last long and won’t accumulate. Milder air will move into the region and force any precipitation to be in the form of rain in Rhode Island and Southeast Massachusetts.
