Forecast Discussion

Low pressure south of Long Island will intensify as it moves slowly northeast today, with a strengthening onshore flow pushing copious amounts of moisture into New England. Strengthening easterly winds will allow the higher summits to finally break above the freezing mark, with morning mixed precipitation changing over to all rain. As the low moves into the Gulf of Maine this evening rain will pick up in intensity, with heavy rain possible over the course of the night and into Thursday. Flooding remains a concern for the neighboring ravines and tributaries due to the extended nature of this storm and the heavy rainfall expected over the next few days. The heavier precipitation should come to an end Thursday evening, with lighter rain showers continuing into Friday as the low pressure slowly pulls away into the Canadian Maritimes.
