I am closely watching a squall line that is now pushing across eastern New York State right now at a forward speed of about 50-55 mph.

This squall line is likely to push into far western Mass around 9 pm and reach the I-91 corridor by about 9:30 pm. This squall line is likely to then reach a line from Orange-Gardner to Sturbridge by about 9:45 pm. It is expected that this squall line will race across Central Mass around 10 pm.

While there is likely to be very little, if any thunder or lightning, this squall line will still likely pack a big punch as it will be accompanied by wind gusts of 50 to 70 mph and a period of extremely heavy rainfall. Downed tree limbs and some power outages are quite possible, so it may be best to pull out those flashlights and charge up those phones, just in case.

For The Rest Of Today: Skies are expected to be cloudy this afternoon and a few showers are possible from time to time. In addition, south to southeast winds will increase and begin to gust up to 30 to 35 mph at times. It should be noted that the strongest winds are still yet to come this evening. Tonight: A sharp squall line consisting of heavy rain, a few thunderstorms and some very gusty winds are expected to push through Western and Central Mass this evening. Latest indications are that the squall line will push across Western Mass between 9 pm and 11 pm this evening and then across Central Mass between 10 pm and midnight or so. This squall line will be accompanied by a 30 to 60 minute period of very heavy rain, a few rumbles of thunder and wind gusts of up to 50 to 60 mph. Downed tree limbs and power outages are possible. I think that we may avoid some big time issues as most of the leaves are now off of the trees. Once that line of heavy rain and gusty winds move to the east, expect clear skies after midnight with low temperatures between 35 and 40 Degrees. I will be keeping a very close eye on the progress of the squall line and will post updates as needed. Monday: A mixture of sunshine and clouds is expected for Monday with high temperatures near 50 Degrees. Thank you for reading my latest forecast for Western and Central Mass.

For The Rest Of Today: Generally the sky will be partly sunny throughout the remainder of today. In addition, there will be northwest winds that will gust up to 20 to 30 mph at times. High temperatures this afternoon will be in the upper 40s to low 50s. Tonight: An area of high pressure will be centered right over Southern New England tonight. This means that the sky will be clear and winds will become light. Low temperatures tonight will be between 20 and 25 Degrees. Sunday & Sunday Night: Most of the day Sunday is expected to be dry with early morning sunshine giving way to increasing and thickening clouds. High temperatures Sunday will be near 50 Degrees. The weather is expected to become quite active as we get into Sunday evening as a sharp line of heavy rain and very gusty winds pushes across Western Mass between 8 pm and 10 pm and then across Central Mass between about 10 pm and midnight. It looks likely that this line of convection will be accompanied by a 30 to 60 minute period of very heavy rain, a couple of rumbles of thunder and wind gusts of up to 50 mph. Once that line of heavy rain and gusty winds move to the east, expect clear skies after midnight with low temperatures between 35 and 40 Degrees.
