A mixture of sun and clouds are expected This Afternoon across Western and Central Mass. Temperatures this afternoon will peak out in the mid 50s. It will continue to be windy with northwest winds gusting up to 30 mph at times. Clear to partly cloudy skies are expected Tonight with low temperatures between 25 and 30 Degrees. Easter Sunday will start out with some sunshine, however, skies will quickly become cloudy. In addition, a passing shower or two is possible during the afternoon. High temperatures Sunday will be between 55 and 60 Degrees.

Monday looks like a very busy weather day across the entire area. A powerful storm system is expected to move into the Great Lakes during Monday. This storm is expected to bring Western and Central Mass a lot of wind, as well as showers and thunderstorms, some of which could be strong to severe. Wind: South winds are expected to gust up to 25 to 35 mph during the morning and then gust up to 50 to 60 mph during the afternoon. These very strong wind gusts during Monday afternoon will have the capability of downing tree limbs and powerlines across the entire area; therefore, some power outages are a possibility. Thunderstorms: Showers will overspread the region by early Monday morning & then continue throughout the day on Monday. Thunderstorms are expected to spread into Western Mass by mid to late morning & then spread into Central Mass by about midday. The thunderstorm activity is then expected to continue through the early to mid afternoon hours before ending by late afternoon. Given the combination of very strong winds in the low to mid-levels of the atmosphere, strong amounts of wind shear & some unstable air, the potential is certainly there for some of the thunderstorms to be strong to severe with very strong wind gusts the main threat. The cold front with this very strong storm system will move through during Monday evening & much drier air will move in during Monday night & Tuesday.

Plenty of sunshine is expected to continue This Afternoon across Western and Central Mass. Temperatures this afternoon will be in the upper 30s to low 40s. After clear skies this evening, clouds will be on the increase after midnight Tonight. Low temperatures tonight will be near 25 Degrees. It looks like 2 storms this coming week will bring accumulating snow to Western and Central Mass. Storm # 1 For Monday Afternoon & Monday Night: It looks likely that accumulating snow will occur across much of Western & Central Mass on Monday Afternoon & Monday Night. An area of low pressure is expected to move from the North Carolina and Virginia coast Monday afternoon to near Nantucket during Monday night. Snow will overspread the entire area during the early afternoon hours of Monday. I do think that rain will mix in with the snow across the lower elevations during Monday afternoon while mostly all snow occurs across the higher elevations, especially the Berkshires and the northern Worcester Hills. A snow-rain mixture is expected to continue across the lower elevations of Western and Central Mass with mostly all snow continuing across the higher elevations on Monday night. This storm will come to an end early Tuesday morning. My latest forecast snow accumulation map for Monday afternoon and Monday night can be found below. It should be noted that this is expected to be a heavy, wet snow & tree branches and power lines will likely be sagged down by the wet snow. This means that some tree damage and some power outages are possible in the higher elevations, especially the northern Worcester Hills and the Berkshires.


Storm #2 For Wednesday & Wednesday Night:After a brief break on Tuesday, yet another coastal storm is expected to affect the region on Wednesday and Wednesday night. Precipitation in the form of rain except a snow-rain mix across the higher elevations will overspread the area during the mid-morning hours of Wednesday. It is possible that the precipitation will gradually change to all snow across the higher elevations with a rain-snow mix over the lower elevations during Wednesday afternoon. Snow over the higher elevations with a rain-snow mix over the lower elevations is expected to continue through Wednesday night before ending early Thursday morning. Even though it is too early to pinpoint exact snow amounts for Wednesday and Wednesday night, early indications are that 1 to 3 inches of snow are possible across the lower elevations with perhaps 2 to 4 inches or even 3 to 6 inches of snow possible across the higher elevations.
