Rain moving in for part of the weekend

Showers and storms are expected to impact the area from the afternoon into the night, lingering for some into the start of our weekend.

The National Weather Service posted a "preliminary" rainfall map Friday afternoon, which has nearly all of eastern MA looking at 2-plus inches.

Heavy rain will overtake eastern Pennsylvania, New Jersey, New York City and Long Island on Saturday, before shifting northeastward to Boston and Portland, Maine, on Saturday night.

A rainstorm will soak outdoor activities and threaten some communities with flooding in the northeast USA over the weekend.

This weekend our focus is a coastal storm that will bring a round of moderate to heavy rain to western Mass. A few showers or storms could show up by Wednesday and Thursday afternoon. High near 55. Between a half and three quarters of an inch is possible. Daybreak low temperatures will be in the upper 40s to lower 50s, but temperatures will warm to around 80° in the afternoon. Temperatures will struggle to get above the 60s even with partly cloudy skies. More rain chances arrive toward the middle of next week. It'll be 85°+ for the moms and grand-moms this year - Mother Nature certainly illustrating what type of weather she prefers!


Saturday and Sunday look handsome with sunny skies in the forecast.

Sunday will be cloudy and warmer with a threat of rain.

Slight chance of showers will wrap up the weekend, near 40 percent throughout the GLOW region.

Sunday features increasing sunshine and highs in the mid 70s.
