Rain tapering off, but isolated showers not ruled out

Posted: Updated:

Rain came down at a pretty good clip throughout the state on Friday morning.

Meteorologist Mark Dixon said it had an impact on the morning commute, but it has since been tapering off and winding down.

"[We] can’t rule out an isolated shower [Friday] afternoon, but the steadier/heavier rain will be over," Dixon said.

Dixon also said not to expect much sunshine on Friday.

"Perhaps late in the day we could see some intervals of sunshine, but until then it's going to be rather soggy," he said. "Especially through the course of the morning."

The rain is part of an area of low pressure that's spinning away from New Jersey. Friday morning, its center was lifting north into the Boston area.

"Friday afternoon there could be perhaps some lingering showers," Dixon said. "But all-in-all, it'll be winding down."

Temperatures should top out in the mid-to-upper 60s.

It will be mainly cloudy for the overnight hours into Saturday morning.

"Throughout the day [Saturday] there will be a mix of sun and clouds," Dixon said. "At times there will be more clouds than sunshine. But I think we'll be able to squeak out a dry day."

However, some models do indicate rain for Saturday night.

Sunday looks like a dry day as well.

Temperatures on both weekend days should be 70 degrees or better.

"Memorial Day will not be a washout, but it will feature a chance for some scattered showers," Dixon said.
