BOSTON — Let’s face it, for the unofficial end to summer, it’s felt more like mid-summer this weekend. Highs Sunday stretched into the 80s with a muggy airmass.
Labor Day was pretty wet, which obviously wasn’t the greatest timing during the long holiday weekend. Still, considering Memorial Day and the 4th of July were in the mid-80s and dry, we were somewhat due for a shower during a summer holiday. Can’t win them all.
Monday was one of the rainiest days we’ve seen in months. Rain totals exceeded three inches in multiple spots, including North Billerica at 4.40″. Incredible!
The bullseye spot in New England was Cranston, Rhode Island. An amazing 6-7″ fell in a short time frame,and causing drivers to abandon their vehicles.
Any rain will pick up in intensity late Monday into Tuesday morning as a wave of low pressure rides along the stalled cold front. That’ll bring a band of heavy rain right through the heart of southern New England. Expect an additional 1-3″ of rain to fall overnight. That could cause flash flooding in some locations.
The storms finally depart late Tuesday. Wednesday will feature some clearing, but with an easterly wind, temperatures will remain in the low 70s. Temperatures will moderate back into the 80s by the end of the week.
