5:16 am
especially down through plymouth county. thanks to that persistent on-shore flow bringing in all the clouds still east of that dry spot there. look at this, though. hammering rain across portions of the mid atlantic. we're not going to let this happen to any of this over the next 24 to 36 hours. once we start getting into late tomorrow and this area of the high pressure lets up a little bit, that will allow a decent slug of moisture and increase the shower chances tomorrow afternoon and especially tomorrow night into the day on on sunday, still some leftover showers, a lot of clouds still in there. the prevailing on-shore wind will keep a lot of clouds through the weekend and keep us on the cooler side. although the showers on sunday a little more hit-and-miss versus what we see on saturday. i think they'll be more on the widespread side. go from now until friday right around noontime. you can see not a whole lot of rain. one-tenth of an inch or less across much of the area will increase that chance of rain and more appreciable showers friday later in the day, friday night
5:17 am

5:46 am
today. that area of low pressure centered over the ohio valley does not move much. so pretty much the pattern is locked in here over the next couple days. now, it will wobble around a little bit, but the area of the high pressure to the north does let up a little bit. then the shower chance here coming in here on friday afternoon, friday night and into saturday. and i think that's where the majority of the rain will fall. it's still going to be a damp cool second half of the weekend with some spotty leftover drizzle or showers around. i think the rain maybe not as y it potentially could be late friday, friday night and into saturday itself. matthew expected to become a hurricane in the caribbean and make that north turn over the weekend and perhaps going across eastern cuba here by the time we get into early next week. so breezy and cool this afternoon. brightest conditions in terms of the sky cover breaking for some sun in the north and west of boston, some patchy drizzle possible still across southeastern mass.
