Rain Tuesday and Wednesday

An intensifying low pressure system moving into our area from the Ohio Valley will bring numerous rain showers, possibly heavy at times, Tuesday afternoon through Wednesday afternoon. The storm center is predicted to track to our west, which means we will experience relatively warm air.

While Boston and areas to the south will see all rain, the rest of New England may see a mix of freezing rain (precipitation falling as rain and freezing upon hitting the ground), sleet (melted snow that has refrozen as it falls through a colder layer of air), and a little snow. Strong winds are also possible Wednesday morning.

High pressure on Wednesday night will mean a clear sky Wednesday night and Thursday. Another, weaker storm system threatens to affect the region Friday.
