Good day for tree decorating

Low pressure is riding northward up the Appalachians today, headed for the Eastern Great Lakes and southern Ontario tonight. This low pressure system – and its associated frontal zones – are bringing a large swath of cloud cover and precipitation to the Mid-Atlantic and Northeast today.

Light rain moved into the area early this morning / in the pre-dawn hours / and will continue off and on throughout much of the day today. While most of the rain will be on the light side, we are likely to see a few embedded pockets of steadier, heavier rain now and then.

Combined, the cloud cover, periods of rain and a busy onshore breeze will leave us stuck in the 40s. Overall – not a nice day. Good weather for staying inside…and maybe decorating the Christmas Tree.

The regional radar (above) from about 9AM showed a large area of rain across Southern New England, with fairly uniform temperatures in the 40s. You can grab the latest radar imagery HERE.
