Showers spilled into the region overnight and continue to push across the Cape and Islands first thing this morning. Upwards of 1/2 inch of rain had fallen in spots as of 8AM and additional downpours were passing over the region. Given the lack of rain in recent weeks, the poorly timed (start of the weekend) wet weather is still a welcomed over the area.
Saturday morning’s wet weather will shift seaward over the course of the morning, with drier conditions taking hold during the midday hours. While clouds will be tough to shake, we should see brighter skies this afternoon with hopefully some holes in the overcast developing and some breaks of sunshine now and then through the second half of the day. Temperatures in the lower 60s this morning will climb to the 70s this afternoon.
The good news: A frontal zone will push offshore tonight and set the stage for a sunny, warm and somewhat steamy day on Sunday. Expect temperatures to climb into the 80s and for blue skies to be the overall theme for the second half of the weekend.
The radar as of little before 8AM showed showers spilling across the area. Track the rain on the current radar.
