Drenching showers and thunderstorms will make for tricky travel across much of New England through tonight. Locations from Boston, Mass., to Manchester, N.H., and Portland, Maine, will experience bands of drenching showers as a stream of moisture lifts from the Atlantic into southern New England.
This stream of moisture proceeds an approaching cold front which will move eastward across the region late tonight and early Saturday morning. Until then, locally heavy downpours will traverse from south to north across southern New England, leading to a slow evening commute for millions of travelers.
A few thunderstorms will accompany these showers, but AccuWeather.com meteorologists are not expecting any widespread severe weather.
Localized flooding of urban areas and poor drainage areas is possible as far west as Albany and Worcester as well.
For Boston, Manchester and Portland, the heaviest rain is expected to fall between noon and 8 p.m. before precipitation tapers to a few lingering showers for the overnight.
Much drier weather will move in later in the day tomorrow and sunshine will return in full force on Sunday, despite a slight cooldown.
