downpours. and you will sleep through most of this heavy stuff. future cast as you roll through the day and not going to see a lot going on. it is underdoing that drizzle just a little bit here and steady rain between 7:00 and 10:00 that will move from western to eastern massachusetts. a steady at times heavy rain that takes us into the predawn hours but doesn't last between 3 and 4:00. 20 hours from now and improvements in site. high temperatures are a little bit tricky because they will happen real late in the day. temperatures will continue to rise, but by about midnight, 5 rise, but by about midnight, 52 in taunton. 58 in bridgewater and plymouth 58 in bridgewater and plymouth. 57 in braintree.
