Should be a pretty solid storm on Wednesday across New England. Our computer models are showing the potential for gusty winds (up to 50mph) and 1″-2″ of rain. The wind and rain should occur over a short duration on Wednesday but will likely be impressive.
Temperatures will approach the 60 degree mark as well with a screaming southerly wind transporting wind and moisture north. It’s possible a few thunderstorms could develop but at this point it doesn’t appear storms will be widespread. If they do develop, however, some could be severe. Here’s the 18z NAM precipitation forecast from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. Wednesday which shows nearly an inch of rain over parts of Connecticut in a 3 hour period – that’s impressive!
