Weather Now: Mostly Cloudy with an Occasional Shower Today
 
 
Weather Now: Mostly Cloudy with an Occasional Shower Today
 
Light rain from overnight has moved out as an ocean storm stayed well east of Cape Cod. Unfortunately, it was too far away to produce any beneficial rain for our area. The highest totals were near the coast, where 0.1″ to 0.2″ fell. As the system lifts north toward coastal Maine, it takes most of the rain with other. Look for moslty cloudy skies this afternoon and just an occasional light shower or sprinkle. It will be cooler than normal, with highs in the upper 60s and low 70s. Winds along the eastern Massachusetts coastline will be gusty, but they’ve stayed rather light in RI. Hour by Hour // A look at the next hours’ conditions » A small craft advisory continues for local waters through the day, with waves in Narragansett Bay up to 2-3ft. Waves in the sound could top 5 feet. Ocean, Bay & Beach // A look at the conditions by the coast » Meanwhile, on the Cape and along the eastern Massachusetts coastline, a “High Surf Advisory” is in effect and dangerous rip currents are likely. A few lingering showers are possible this evening and early tonight and then it turns drier with gradual clearing by dawn. It will be breezy and cool with lows in the upper 50s to low 60s. Thursday will be breezy and more seasonable with highs in the upper 70s to low 80s. A stretch of much warmer temperatures begins on Friday and lasts through the weekend.
