Fitchburg was doused with 1.2 inches, the highest recorded amount in Massachusetts overnight. Boston received about a half-inch, Buttrick said.

Today will be drizzly and cold, with high temperatures cresting at 52 degrees. Some of the heavy clouds could disperse in the evening as low temperatures drop into the mid-40s.

Sunny and dry conditions should return Thursday, though onshore winds will keep temperatures cool, Buttrick said. Sunny skies will be accompanied by highs near 63 degrees. Partly cloudy skies will arrive in the evening, and low temperatures should sink to 49 degrees overnight.

The week will end on a cloudy note, with high temperatures at a normal 67 degrees. Skies should stay gray into the evening, with some showers possible by mid-afternoon. Low temperatures should drop into the lower 50s.
