The northeast is expected to experience lighter showers throughout the morning, but forecasters predict it will get stronger as the day progresses.
Despite the constant humid weather, temperatures are expected to be around the teenage years, which means it could look quite humid throughout the region.
The rain is expected to subside as night approaches, with the possibility of further showers on Friday, September 10.
