Low pressure passing through the Northeast is sweeping a wave of showers, downpours and embedded thunderstorms across the region today.As of first thing this morning a large area of showers and thunderstorms was pushing northeastward across Southern New England, resulting in numerous locations in the central and western half of the 3-state region reporting heavy rain and thunder.
Further east, here on the Cape, our day started with cloudy skies, temperatures in the 60s, a busy south wind and intermittent showers and areas of mist. There was also a distinctly more humid feel to the air versus recent days.
Today is sort of a “what-you-see-is-what-get” kind of day. We can anticipate overcast conditions for the most part and for passing showers to move through the area at times (not an all day rain but a damp feel throughout the day). A couple of downpours are possible here and there and a thunderstorm can’t be ruled out of the forecast.
The good news is…the unsettled weather will shift eastward tonight and clearing skies will develop and really take hold on Friday morning. This will set the stage for a lengthy period of sunny and much warmer weather.
