David Epstein: Here’s when to expect rain this weekend

Tom Scott secured a boat at India Wharf Marina before last week's nor'easter.

It’s been a wet fall, and we’ve seen several weekends where it has rained at least one of the days. That’s going to be the case again this weekend with showers continuing through the first part of Saturday.

Here’s your complete weekend weather forecast.

Expect scattered showers Friday.

Friday brings clouds and relatively high humidity for this time of the year, along with scattered showers and even the rumble of thunder. Some of these showers could be accompanied by heavy downpours, gusty winds, and quick street flooding.

It’s not impossible some storms will become strong or even severe, but I am not expecting a day of widespread severe weather.

There will be a little bit of a break in the action Friday evening before another round of heavy showers moves in overnight and especially the first part of Saturday.

Saturday will be wet.

Showers continue Saturday during the first few hours of the day. If the weather system moves a little bit faster, we’ll salvage the latter part of the morning, but if things slow down, it’s going to be wet throughout.

The bottom line: Saturday does not look great, and once the showers end, winds are going to pick up out of the northwest and become quite gusty. This could cause some scattered power outages.

Sunshine returns Sunday.

Sunday is definitely the pick of the weekend with plenty of sunshine but cool temperatures only in the low to mid 50s. Winds will be relatively light.

The unsettled weather continues next week with more rain moving in for Monday and continuing into Tuesday. Temperatures will be seasonably cool.
