Rain is projected to fall across the region, which is currently seeing drought conditions, starting on Thursday and continuing on throughout the weekend.
"We're missing about eight inches of rain in Boston," WBZ-TV's Chief Meteorologist Eric Fisher said. "That's a lot of moisture to be missing out on."
Fisher also noted that temperatures have been running on the high side in Boston as well.
"The average highs are in the low to mid seventies this time of the year," he said. "So we're basically sitting at a typical September day, but in the middle of the night."
The NOAA report also registered record-high temperatures in Rhode Island and Connecticut.
