Minor tidal flooding occurred in the affected areas during high tide between 7 a.m. and 9 a.m. Sunday. With the heavy rain came warmer weather and highs reached 62 degrees Sunday afternoon. The rain began to taper off around noon leading to periods of scattered showers before the system moved out late afternoon.

Missing Attachment Warmer weather is coming back into the region, and it is bringing rain with it. NBC10 First Alert Weather Meteorologist Brittney Shipp has when to expect rain and what temperatures to expect for the rest of the weekend in her 7-day forecast.

The unseasonable warmth won't last for long. An arctic blast will move in overnight into Monday morning leading to a temperature drop of nearly 30 degrees in 24 hours. Monday’s high will be 35 degrees. We’ll warm up a bit Tuesday with a high of 44 before another arctic blast comes in Wednesday in which we’ll see a high of 30 degrees.
