An upper level low moving towards the middle Atlantic coast will spawn low pressure at the surface that will move northward across eastern New England today and Thursday. Steady moderate rain is expected to develop from south to north across the region later today and continue most of the day on Thursday. Rainfall amounts in excess of 25mm are likely with as much as 50mm closer to the US border south and east of the city. Amounts will taper off north and west of Montreal. Winds are expected to increase as well across the valley with a cool raw northeast breeze. Expect winds in the 30-50km/h range across the area. Temperatures were very mild Tuesday under sunny skies reaching 19.3C in the city. They will be much cooler today and tonight with those clouds and northeast winds keeping it in the 10 to 12C range. Skies will clear by Friday.
