Boston 25 Weather

High wind, flooding rain to impact the area Monday


Sunday will be one of the nicer days this week as highs climb rapidly in the morning. A front will lift temperatures into the upper 50s and even low 60s by the afternoon, though it will come with a breeze. Mostly cloudy skies will prevail by the evening as the storm system approaches and rain will begin not long before midnight.


The heaviest rain will arrive Sunday night and continue into Monday morning. Heavy rain could lead to street flooding, especially across central MA and southern NH. A Flood Watch has been issued west of 495 to account for places where we could see 2-3″ of rain. An isolated measurement of 4″ is also possible. Strong winds are likely to gust in the 40-55 MPH range across SE Mass and 50-70 MPH range on the Cape/Islands. This will present a risk for tree damage and possibly power outages. The worst of the storm will occur during the window of 4am to 10am. Use caution on the roads and take your time!

A HIGH WIND WATCH is in place for Cape Cod, Nantucket, Martha’s Vineyard, and the New Hampshire seacoast Sunday evening through Monday afternoon.

A FLOOD WATCH is on for central and western New England Sunday afternoon through Monday evening.

This will be an impactful storm, so stay with us all weekend as it develops.
