For Tonight: An area of high pressure will begin to build into the area tonight. This means that any early evening clouds and snow flurries will give way to clear to partly cloudy skies. Low temperatures tonight will be near 25 Degrees. Thursday: An area of high pressure will control the weather throughout Thursday. Plenty of sunshine is expected on Thursday with high temperatures between 45 and 50 Degrees. In addition, much lighter winds are expected on Thursday. Friday: Moisture ahead of a developing storm system over the southeastern United States is expected to reach Southern New England during Friday. This means that skies on Friday will be cloudy and there may be some rain shower activity during the afternoon. High temperatures Friday will be between 45 and 50 Degrees. Weekend Storm System Expected Across Western & Central Mass: A storm system is expected to head across southeastern Mass on Saturday afternoon before moving towards Eastern Maine and Nova Scotia on Saturday night. This is a complicated forecast and it is a forecast that is probably going to change over the next couple of days, so stay tuned. The two uncertain parts of this forecast are the exact track of the storm in relation to Southern New England and how much cold air will this storm be able to tap into. A storm that tracks across the Cape on Saturday may be able to pull down just enough cold air for the rain to change to snow across the Berkshires and along and north of Route 2 during later Saturday afternoon and Saturday evening. The changeover from rain to snow may occur across all of Western and Central Mass during Saturday night with snow gradually ending on Sunday morning. One thing that is for certain is that I don’t think that this will be an all rain event and I also don’t think that this will be an all snow event either. Instead, we may be looking at something where it rains for a while on Saturday and then changes to snow during Saturday night. Here is my thinking as of right now – Rain overspreads all of Western and Central Mass during Friday night with rain continuing through Saturday morning. During Saturday afternoon, the rain is expected to change to snow from northwest to southeast across the Berkshires and along and north of Route 2. Elsewhere across the region, rain is expected to continue. Snow is expected to continue on Saturday night into Sunday morning before ending across the Berkshires and along and north of Route 2. Elsewhere, rain may change to snow across the rest of Western and Central Mass during Saturday night with snow continuing into Sunday morning. All precipitation is expected to come to an end around midday Sunday. It is too early to even start mentioning how much snow may accumulate this weekend, especially considering how complicated and uncertain the forecast is. I have created a preliminary map of what to expect this weekend & an extremely early call at possible snow amounts. As I already mentioned, this is a forecast that will likely change over the next couple of days – so, keep checking back!

For This Afternoon: An area of high pressure located to the south of New England will provide plenty of sunshine this afternoon across Western and Central Mass. High temperatures will be between 50 and 55 Degrees with a light southwest wind. Tonight: That high pressure system will push off of the East Coast of the United States tonight. Skies are expected to be clear this evening with an increase in clouds expected after midnight tonight. Low temperatures tonight will be between 25 and 30 Degrees. Monday & Monday Night: An area of low pressure is expected to strengthen as it heads northward across Pennsylvania and New York State during Monday afternoon and Monday night. This will lead to rain overspreading Western and Central Mass by early Monday afternoon. The rain will become heavy at times by late Monday afternoon with heavy rain continuing through Monday evening. In addition, the atmosphere is likely to be unstable enough for some embedded thunderstorms to move through during the 4 pm to 8 pm time frame. A soaking rainfall with widespread 1 to 2 inches of rain can be expected. Some localized rainfall amounts of up to 3 inches is certainly possible with this storm. This means that localized street flooding looks quite possible during Monday afternoon and Monday evening, which will impact the late Monday afternoon and Monday evening rush hour. In addition to the heavy rain threat, windy conditions still look likely during Monday afternoon and Monday evening. It is expected that south to southeast winds will gust up to 40 to 50 mph at times during Monday afternoon and especially during Monday evening. The bulk of the rain is expected to end by midnight Monday night, however, some lingering showers will continue right into Tuesday morning across the entire area. High temperatures Monday will be between 55 and 60 Degrees. Low temperatures Monday night will be near 50 Degrees. Tuesday: An upper level low pressure system is expected to be situated across the eastern Ohio Valley on Tuesday. This will keep us cloudy and I expect to see some fairly widespread rain showers around throughout the day Tuesday. Temperatures on Tuesday will be between 50 and 55 Degrees. Wednesday & Thursday: Wednesday is expected to feature a mixture of sun and clouds with high temperatures between 40 and 45 Degrees. Thursday is expected to be a sunny to partly sunny day with high temperatures near 45 Degrees. Friday Through Saturday: An area of low pressure is forecast to form to the southeast of Long Island on Friday evening and then head towards Nova Scotia by Saturday morning. This storm is expected to bring another round of rain to the area during Friday afternoon and Friday evening with lingering rain showers lasting into Saturday. High temperatures Friday will be near 50 Degrees. Low temperatures Friday night will be near 40 Degrees. High temperatures Saturday will be between 45 and 50 Degrees.

For This Afternoon: We should be pretty socked in with clouds throughout this afternoon, however, some breaks in the clouds are possible from time to time. Temperatures this afternoon will be in the middle 50s. Tonight: Generally cloudy skies are expected tonight. A rain shower or two is possible this evening across areas south of the Mass Pike. Low temperatures tonight will be between 32 and 37 Degrees. Saturday: Considerable amounts of cloudiness can be expected on Saturday. Even with that, I think that we will probably see some peeks of sunshine from time to time on Saturday. A couple of rain showers are expected during the afternoon. High temperatures on Saturday will be between 48 and 52 Degrees. Saturday Night Through Sunday: An area of high pressure is expected to build eastward from the Ohio Valley into Southern New England by Sunday. Clear to partly cloudy skies are expected on Saturday night with low temperatures will be near 30 Degrees. A sunny day is expected on Sunday with high temperatures between 45 and 50 Degrees. Monday & Monday Night: A rapidly strengthening low pressure system is expected to head northward into the eastern Great Lakes during the day on Monday. This low pressure system will pull a frontal system into Southern New England by Monday afternoon and Monday evening bringing with it a bout of heavy rain and very gusty winds. Rain will overspread Western and Central Mass by midday Monday with rain, heavy at times, expected throughout Monday afternoon and Monday evening. In addition to this, there is the possibility that a line of thunderstorms could march across the region during the late afternoon and evening hours of Monday. In addition to the heavy rain threat, it is going to be quite windy throughout Monday afternoon and Monday evening with south to southeast winds gusting up to 40 to 50 mph at times. Rain is then expected to continue through midnight Monday night before tapering off to rain showers after midnight Monday night. In addition, the winds will decrease in speeds to about 10 to 20 mph from the south after midnight Monday night. This is expected to be a real soaker across the region with total rainfall amounts of 1 to 2 inches expected. Temperatures on Monday and Monday night will remain in the low to mid 50s. Tuesday: An upper level low pressure system is expected to be situated across the eastern Ohio Valley on Tuesday. This will keep us cloudy and I expect to see some fairly widespread rain showers around throughout the day Tuesday. Temperatures on Tuesday will be between 50 and 55 Degrees. Wednesday & Thursday: I think that we will remain in a somewhat unsettled weather pattern for Wednesday and Thursday as an upper level low pressure system gradually moves into southeastern Canada. Wednesday looks to be the cloudier of the two days and there may be a few stray rain showers around. Some partial sunshine can be expected on Thursday. High temperatures Wednesday and Thursday will be between 40 and 45 Degrees. Thank you for reading mylatest forecast for Western and Central Mass.
