A Rainy Night

A coastal low pressure system is getting its act together just off the coast of Virgina and southern New Jersey this evening. It will deepen rapidly and rocket up NE to the Gulf of Maine by tomorrow morning, all the while, bringing in some tropical moisture from the Atlantic. Rainfall will start in earnest from SW to NE reaching Boston and Providence around 6-8PM. It will only last a good 8-10 hours in SNE and be heaviest in Maine and western New England. Here in SNE, rainfall amounts will be around a half inch. Further north into NNE, rainfall in the 1-2" range will be common. The sun will likely come out tomorrow afternoon with a stiff NW breeze, but temperatures will bump up into the low to mid 60's here in SNE, the warmest we've seen in a while. NNE will stay in the rain most of the day and have temperatures stuck in the low to middle 50's. It all wraps up Friday night for everyone and the first game of the ALCS with the Boston Red Sox facing off against the Cleveland Indians, will go off without a hitch. It will be a little cool and breezy with temperatures at gametime around 52 degrees, and likely falling into the upper 40's during the course of the game. Saturday may pop up a few instability rain showers in SNE, but in NNE, once the sun goes down, those rain showers will likely turn to snow showers, maybe allowing for a dusting of snow at Jay Peak. This weekend will be sunny but very cool with temperatures in the 50's South, upper 40's North. Great for playoff baseball in Boston.
