Dry Conditions To Continue Through Tomorrow
The dry conditions are expected to continue through tomorrow, with partly sunny skies expected. High temperatures will once again be mild, in the mid to upper 50s. By Thursday, despite high temperatures still in the 50s, we should be seeing mainly cloudy skies as the next storm approaches the area.
Heavy Rain And Flooding For Friday And Saturday
Another storm approaches the area for Friday and the weekend, though unlike the previous few storms, this storm should barely have any cold air to work with, and will bring rain to almost all of the Northeast, with heavy rain in the northern Mid Atlantic and southern New England.
Scattered showers are possible through Thursday, though the rain should mainly start by Thursday night. Periods of light to moderate rain are expected until Friday night, with rainfall amounts generally up to 1 inch by that time. On Saturday, an area of heavy rain should enter the area, with periods of heavy rain through the day. Flooding is possible during this time, especially in the heaviest rain showers. The precipitation should then slowly weaken through Sunday, and should end by at least Sunday night. By the time that the storm is over, 2 to 4 inches of rain are possible in the area, with locally higher amounts.
Below is my first rain map for this storm. Note that the “2+ inch potential” area could be extended further north and east, and in the 2+ inch area, rain amounts could locally be as high as 5-6 inches.
