It still looks like we will see the first snowfall of the season across much of Western and Central Mass from late tonight through Friday morning. So, let’s take a look at what’s going to happen: Rain is expected to continue This Afternoon across all of Western and Central Mass with temperatures in the upper 40s to low 50s. Tonight: The remnants of Tropical Storm Zeta will track to the south of New England this evening before another low pressure begins to approach our area late tonight. This means that rain will continue this evening across all of Western and Central Mass. As we get into later tonight, rain will gradually change to snow as colder air begins to move in on the backside of Zeta and the winds shift into a northerly direction. The changeover from rain to snow is expected to occur first in the Berkshires and the northern Worcester Hills around midnight or so. The completion of the changeover from rain to snow is expected across all of Western and Central Mass by about sunrise Friday morning. So, it’s fairly likely that it will be snowing everywhere across Western and Central Mass when the sun comes up tomorrow morning. Friday: That second low pressure system will head across southern New England during Friday morning. The moisture and energy from this low pressure system combined with colder air moving in at the same time will lead to a burst of snow throughout Friday morning across all of Western and Central Mass. At the same time this is occurring, temperatures are likely to fall into the low 30s for a while tomorrow morning and while most of the snow accumulation will occur on non-paved surfaces, some roads could become snow-covered and slippery for a while, especially in the higher elevations. The snow is expected to come to an end between about 12 pm and 2 pm Friday afternoon with some rise in the temperatures expected during the afternoon with high temperatures of between 35 and 40 Degrees. My latest forecast snow accumulations can be found with the map attached.

The first snowfall of the season may be on tap for late Thursday night and Friday morning. The reason for this is that the remnants of Tropical Storm Zeta is expected to push across Southern New England from Thursday afternoon to about Friday morning. The moisture from Zeta is expected to bump up against some colder air pushing down from Canada leading to the possibility for accumulating snow late Thursday night into Friday morning. As of right now, it looks like rain will move in during Thursday afternoon and continue through Thursday evening. A changeover to some snow is looking increasingly more possible after midnight Thursday night. This changeover will occur first across the Berkshires and the northern Worcester Hills around midnight Thursday night and then make it into the lower Pioneer Valley and the Blackstone Valley during the predawn hours of Friday morning. Snow is then expected to continue through Friday morning before ending by Friday afternoon. My first thoughts on possible snow amounts can be found with the map attached to this post.

I am keeping a very close eye on this potential first snowfall & will continue to have updates as needed. Thank you for reading my latest forecast for Western and Central Mass.

This Afternoon: Sunshine mixed with clouds are expected across the region with high temperatures of near 65 Degrees. Tonight: A weak piece of atmospheric energy will push across the area tonight. This will cause skies to be generally cloudy across Western and Central Mass. In addition, an isolated shower is possible across Western Mass, especially west of I-91. Low temperatures tonight will be between 45 and 50 Degrees. Tuesday: That weak piece of atmospheric energy will pull away to the east on Tuesday morning. So, any morning leftover clouds will give way to partly sunny skies during Tuesday afternoon. High temperatures will be between 65 and 70 Degrees. Wednesday: A frontal boundary will slowly cross the northeastern United States during Wednesday. This means that much of the day will be cloudy and there may be a stray shower or two around, however, it will be far from being a washout. High temperatures Wednesday will be between 65 and 70 Degrees. Thursday Through Friday: High pressure will build back into the area for late this week. This means that both Thursday and Friday will be sunny to partly sunny. High temperatures Thursday will be near 70 Degrees and high temperatures Friday will be between 65 and 70 Degrees.
