For This Afternoon: Cloudy skies with cool and windy conditions will continue across the region this afternoon as an annoying low pressure system hangs out to the south of New England. Temperatures will be between 50 and 55 Degrees. Winds will be Northeast at 10 to 20 mph with gusts to 30 mph. Tonight: That low pressure system is expected to remain nearly stationary to the south of New England tonight. This will lead to the continuation of cloudy skies and some pretty raw conditions. Low temperatures tonight will be between 40 and 45 Degrees. Winds will be Northwest at 10 to 20 mph. Tuesday & Tuesday Night: It appears that our stubborn low pressure system will push northwestward and then westward causing it to come a little closer to our area. This means that skies on Tuesday and Tuesday night will be cloudy. In addition, some showers are expected to lift northward into the entire area during the afternoon. Showers are then expected to continue through Tuesday night. In fact, some steady rain is a possibility across areas near and south of the Mass Pike after midnight Tuesday night. High temperatures Tuesday will be near 55 Degrees. Winds will be Northeast at 10 to 20 mph. Low temperatures Tuesday night will be between 45 and 50 Degrees. Winds will be Northeast at 10 to 20 mph. Wednesday: It appears that the low pressure system will hang around for one last day on Wednesday before it finally pulls away. Some steady rain looks to continue during Wednesday morning near and south of the Mass Pike with showers continuing throughout the morning north of the Mass Pike. This rain should gradually end during the afternoon. High temperatures will be between 55 and 60 Degrees. Winds will be Northeast at 10 to 20 mph. Thursday & Friday: An area of high pressure looks to build into the area for both Thursday and Friday. Thursday is expected to be partly sunny with high temperatures between 65 and 70 Degrees. Friday looks sunny with high temperatures near 70 Degrees. It should be noted that a sharp cold front will push through the region during Friday evening bringing with it perhaps a few showers, but more likely a drastic drop in temperatures with low temperatures Friday night near 40 Degrees. This Weekend: A chilly weekend is expected across the area due to cold air rushing in behind that cold front. Saturday looks sunny to partly sunny with high temperatures near 55 Degrees. Clear skies with scattered frost possible is expected on Saturday night with low temperatures near 35 Degrees. Sunday looks sunny with high temperatures between 50 and 55 Degrees.

For This Afternoon: A tight pressure gradient between a high pressure system over Quebec province and a low pressure system off of the Mid-Atlantic will lead to a continuation of the windy conditions this afternoon. Skies this afternoon will be cloudy and it’ll be windy and cool. Temperatures will be between 50 and 55 Degrees. Winds will be Northeast at 15 to 25 mph with gusts to 35 mph. Tonight: The winds should decrease a bit tonight as the pressure gradient relaxes a little. Skies tonight will be cloudy with low temperatures between 37 and 41 Degrees. Winds will be Northeast at 10 to 20 mph with gusts to 30 mph. Monday: An area of high pressure is expected to push into northern New England as an area of low pressure is located well to our south. This means that skies on Monday will be partly sunny with high temperatures between 55 and 60 Degrees. Winds will be Northeast at 10 to 20 mph with gusts to 30 mph. Tuesday & Wednesday: An area of low pressure will remain well to our south throughout Tuesday and Wednesday. While any rain should remain to our south, the weather looks to be cloudy and cool. Tuesday looks cloudy with high temperatures between 55 and 60 Degrees. Winds will be Northeast at 10 to 20 mph. Wednesday also looks cloudy with high temperatures between 60 and 65 Degrees. Thursday: An area of high pressure is expected to build right over the area during Thursday bringing with it a sunny day. High temperatures will be between 70 and 75 Degrees. Friday Through Next Weekend: A sharp cold front is expected to push through the region later Friday and will bring with it probably the chilliest weather so far this season for next weekend. Friday is expected to be partly sunny and there may be some scattered afternoon showers caused by the front moving through. High temperatures will be near 70 Degrees. Saturday looks partly sunny, cool and windy with high temperatures near 50 Degrees. Next Sunday looks partly sunny with high temperatures between 50 and 55 Degrees. It should also be noted that there could be some evening and overnight scattered showers next Sunday night as a secondary cold front moves through. In fact, some of this precipitation could fall as snow flurries in the Berkshires.

For The Rest Of This Afternoon: Sunshine will be filtered through high clouds throughout the rest of this afternoon. Temperatures will be around 60 Degrees. Winds will be Northeast at 5 to 10 mph. Tonight: Skies are expected to become cloudy tonight as the remnants of Ian begin to push northward from the Carolinas into the Mid-Atlantic states. Any rainfall from the remnants of Ian should hold off until the daytime hours of Saturday. Low temperatures will be between 50 and 55 Degrees. Winds will be East at 5 to 10 mph. Saturday: A difficult forecast awaits me for Saturday as our area will be sandwiched in-between the remnants of Ian pushing across the Mid-Atlantic states and a big high pressure system over northern New England. The big question is how far north will the steady rain push into our area. Weather forecast guidance isn’t much help with some guidance forecasting an all day rain that’ll come down pretty hard at times. Other guidance, which is just as reliable, shows rain being confined to areas south of the Mass Pike. Given the amount of dry air that’s located just to our north, I think it’s going to be difficult to get much rain to occur as far north as Route 2. I think that we’ll see rain overspread areas along and south of the Mass Pike by mid to late morning Saturday and then continue pushing northward across Western and Central Mass through midday. During the afternoon hours, it should be raining everywhere south of Route 2 with areas near and north of Route 2 seeing some spotty rain moving in by mid-afternoon. Rainfall amounts Saturday will range from a couple of hundredths of an inch near and north of Route 2 to up to one quarter of an inch of rainfall north of the Mass Pike to between one quarter of an inch to one half of an inch near and south of the Mass Pike. High temperatures Saturday will be between 55 and 60 Degrees. Winds will be Northeast 5 to 10 mph. All-in-all, Saturday will be a wet and raw day across the entire area. Saturday Night: It appears that rain will continue throughout the night across the entire area, but the overall intensity appears to be light. Low temperatures will be near 55 Degrees. Winds will be Northeast at 10 to 20 mph. Sunday: Unfortunately, it appears that Sunday will be another very raw and dreary day across the region as the remnants of Ian hang nearby. Periods of light rain looks to hang on during the morning before ending during the afternoon, primarily near and south of the Mass Pike. North of the Mass Pike, it’ll be cloudy throughout the day and it’ll be cool and windy. Temperatures will remain steady near 55 Degrees. Winds will be Northwest at 10 to 20 mph with gusts to 30 mph. Monday: An area of high pressure builds into the region for Monday with partly sunny skies expected. High temperatures will be between 55 and 60 Degrees. Tuesday Through Thursday: It appears that an area of low pressure is going to develop to the south of New England during Tuesday and then remain nearby through Wednesday. This is going to lead to large amounts of uncertainty in the forecast as there’s considerable questions as to how far north the low pressure system will track. At this point, I think that any rain will remain just to our south across southern Connecticut, southern Rhode Island and across the Cape. For our area, Tuesday and Wednesday both look cloudy with high temperatures both days between 55 and 60 Degrees. High pressure returns for Thursday with lots of sunshine expected and high temperatures between 65 and 70 Degrees.
