Rainy and damp tonight, warm temps tomorrow
NOW: Storm Team Meteorologist Michele Powers says temperatures will warm up and there will be intermittent rain through early Friday. It will also be damp and foggy tonight as the warmer air arrives and melts the snow. There is a dense fog advisory on the sound only at this point, but visibility is low everywhere. The rain will pick up after dinnertime and through the overnight.
That will help with the fog situation. Temperatures will remain near 40 degrees tonight along the 95 corridor. Cooler middle and upper 30s everywhere else. Staying above freezing.
FORECAST: Rainy and damp but much warmer the next couple of days. Tomorrow, temperatures will climb into the lower and middle 50s. Rain will be on and off, steady at times overnight but lighter through the day tomorrow.
There is a frontal boundary stalled nearby and waves of rain will continue to ride along it until Friday. The cold front will move through and drier air will arrive on Friday. Temperatures will drop into the 40s.
WHAT'S NEXT: A quiet start to the weekend with dry weather on Saturday but now rain will return for Sunday. Temperatures will drop during the day and there is a chance some of that rain may turn to snow at night. This should clear by Monday. Temperatures are cooler next week with highs in the 30s and closer to seasonable. Normal high/low is 38/24 for late January. Some colder nights ahead for Sunday night, Monday night and even next week.

FRIDAY: Early rain, then cloudy. High near 52. SATURDAY: Partly sunny to mostly cloudy. Cooler. High 46.
