With afternoon temperatures in the upper 30s in Southeastern New England, most areas west of Worcester will see mostly rain for this event. However, areas at higher elevation, especially in Northern Massachusetts, may see periods of heavy snow and sleet as temperatures remain in the low 30s. Due to periods of heavy precipitation across Southern New England, flooding is possible east of Worcester, as well as areas of icing west of Worcester. Heavy precipitation will continue into the evening across the region with overnight temperatures remaining in the 30s. Winds will peak early Tuesday as the coastal low sits off the Southern coast of New England. Winds may gust up to 60 mph along the coast and 40 mph inland. As temperatures warm tomorrow morning, areas of snow may change over to sleet or freezing rain at higher elevations. Temperatures are expected to reach into the mid 30s in Southwestern New England, with Southeastern New England ranging in the 40s to 50s. Areas east of Worcester may see up to 3 inches of rain by Tuesday evening. Skies will begin to clear early Wednesday morning as the coastal low moves into the Gulf of Maine. With high pressure building in over the region, Southern New England will remain clear and dry through the weekend. $$ LEC is the U.S. government's official web portal to all federal, state and local government web resources and services.
