An extended period of precipitation has begun over the region as an upper level trough of low pressure slowly moves across the northeast United States. Eventually this system will stall off the southern New England coast and develop an easterly fetch of moisture from the Atlantic late Wednesday into Friday. This will result in scattered to numerous showers over the area today and tonight, then more widespread rain Wednesday into Friday. Today showers are likely. Highs will be in the lower 50s with southeast winds around 10 mph this morning, becoming light and variable. Chance of rain is 70%. Tonight rain is likely.
