A cold front is going to move our way overnight and it promises to bring heavy rainfall along with some gusty southerly winds. Rainfall totals are expected to be in the 1-2 inch range and winds could gust up to 50 mph near the coast and also at locations above 1000 feet. The front will be moving past us between 7-10 AM Wednesday bringing an end to the rainfall and allowing the wind to shift into the northwest which should result in rapid clearing during the latter part of the morning. Those northwest winds will transport much cooler air into our region setting the stage for a clear and chilly Wednesday night. A weak ridge of high pressure promises to supply us with a sunny day on Thursday with temperatures a tad below normal and a stationary front sitting just to our east. The models are suggesting that this front will move back to the west on Friday but they don't agree on how close it will come to New England. We should see more cloudiness from the front but I'm not convinced that there will be any precipitation. Another front is expected to move our way from the west over the weekend and could bring some showers on Saturday.
