The National Weather Service said everything is coming together for "a widespread soaking rain event" that will start this morning and last into the evening.

Staying dry might be a challenge in MA on Tuesday. Temperatures will shoot back into the 70s late in the afternoon. High temperatures will be fickle today; the seasonably cool lower 70s farther north with much warmer air farther south thanks to that warm front.

The bi-state area can expect isolated showers and thunderstorms Tuesday into the evening, with many areas expecting no rain at all.

A mix of sun and cloud and 40 per cent chance of showers is on tap for Friday with a high of 20 C and low of 7 C.

With the possibility of storms and strong wind gusts in the forecast, the weather service issued a hazardous weather outlook for Wednesday as well.

In the terms of severe weather, the Storm Prediction Center has placed us under a slight risk for damaging winds, larger hail and heavy rainfall with localized flooding. Chance for rain/thunder overnight. We're forecasting better odds for seeing that bright ball in the sky this upcoming weekend.

Showers are likely Wednesday night, along with a chance of thunderstorms.
