The first band of Tropical moisture, associated with Tropical Storm Ophelia, that surged northward from the North Carolina coast, and many towns will be waking up to steady rain on this first morning of Fall.

One change to our local forecast is it appears that high pressure to our north may win out keeping the heaviest and steadiest rain just south through most of the day. While showers or a period of rain is still expected, especially the shore, flooding rain is less likely today. That said, Sunday now looks to be the worst of the two weekend days with periods of heavy rain that likely lasts into Monday! The remnant circulation of Ophelia will be very slow to move through Southern New England. By Monday AM a total of 1″ to 3″ of rain across the state with locally higher amounts possible

Minor Coastal Flooding at times of High Tide this weekend too!! Nice Tuesday-Wednesday-Thursday next week!!
