up. hour by hour, if you have plans tonight or tomorrow, it will be soggy. 11:00 p.m., a roll of rain moves through and showers progress into massachusetts. by 7:00 a.m. saturday, it's a soggy stat to the day, heavy rain from time to time. 5:00 p.m., good soaking rain continues. overnight saturday into early sunday, 6:00 a.m. we start to let things up here. patchy still be around. cloudy skies and breezy conditions still here for sunday, but it won't be a washout for the second half of the weekend. saturday night through 9:00 p.m., projected rainfall about 1 to 3 inches accumulation. that will put a dent in the drought conditions. we are 58 in boston right now, cool night ahead. 54 overnight, winds picking up
