An Arctic cold front now pushing into western New York State is expected to move across Southern New England this evening. It is expected that a few snow showers and snow squalls will accompany this front, along with very gusty winds and quickly falling temperatures.

At this point, it appears that the time frame for snow shower and snow squall activity will be between 8 pm and midnight this evening across Western and Central Mass. Any snow shower and especially snow squall activity will be accompanied by a brief period of heavy snow that could drop a quick inch or two of snow & near zero visibilities due to briefly heavy snow and blowing snow.

It should be noted that not all areas will see snow showers or snow squalls, but those areas that do are in for a wild few minutes due to the combination of heavy snow and blowing snow. If you do run into a snow shower or snow squall this evening on area roads, please be extremely careful driving as roads will quickly become slippery and your visibility will be extremely limited. If that wasn't enough, strong northwest winds with gusts of up to 50 or even 60 mph are expected throughout tonight. It is also expected to be COLD tonight with low temperatures of 5 to 10 Degrees. These cold temperatures combined with the strong winds will lead to wind chill temperatures of 10 to 20 below zero throughout tonight. Tuesday is expected to be a sunny, but quite cold and quite windy day. I still think that high temperatures on Tuesday will struggle to make it to 25 to 30 Degrees. Northwest winds are expected to gust up to 45 to 50 mph throughout much of the day on Tuesday. Wind chill temperatures on Tuesday will range from 5 to 15 below zero during the morning and near 10 above zero during Tuesday afternoon. Bottom line is that Tuesday will feel like an early January day and not an early March one.

Tonight: An area of low pressure now located over the northern Great Lakes will move eastward across southeastern Canada tonight. This storm system will pull a frontal system across our area bringing us rain throughout the night tonight. Light rain will gradually overspread Western and Central Mass this evening and then continue throughout the rest of the night tonight. Low temperatures tonight will be between 35 and 40 Degrees. The exception to this will be across the northern Worcester Hills and the Berkshires where some light freezing rain may occur tonight as temperatures will fall to near freezing. Please be alert for areas of slippery travel across the Berkshires and the northern Worcester Hills. Monday: Light rain is expected to continue during Monday morning before ending around midday. Some partial sunshine is then expected during Monday afternoon along with increasingly more windy conditions. High temperatures Monday of 45 to 50 Degrees are expected to occur during the morning with temperatures slowly falling into the upper 30s to the lower 40s during the afternoon. Northwest winds are expected to gust up to 40 to 50 mph by late afternoon Monday. Monday Night: A secondary Arctic cold front is expected to push across the area during Monday evening. I do think this Arctic cold front will bring with it a few snow showers and a snow squall or two as it moves through. At this time, it appears that any snow shower and snow squall activity will occur between about 7-8 pm and midnight Monday evening. A quick inch or two of snow accumulation is certainly possible in areas that do see snow shower and especially snow squall activity. In addition, strong northwest winds with gusts of up to 50 mph are expected throughout Monday night. It is expected to be COLD on Monday night with low temperatures of 10 to 15 Degrees. These cold temperatures combined with the strong winds will lead to wind chill temperatures of 5 to 15 below zero throughout Monday night. Brrrr!! Tuesday: A sunny, quite cold and quite windy day is expected on Tuesday. I think that high temperatures on Tuesday will struggle to make it to 25 to 30 Degrees. Northwest winds are expected to gust up to 40 to 50 mph throughout much of the day on Tuesday. Wind chill temperatures on Tuesday will range from Zero to 10 below zero during the morning and near 10 above zero during Tuesday afternoon. Bottom line is that Tuesday will feel like an early January day and not an early March one. Tuesday Night: A clear and cold night is expected on Tuesday night with low temperatures near 20 Degrees. Wednesday Through Friday: Sunny to partly sunny skies are expected for Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. High temperatures on Wednesday will be near 45 Degrees. High temperatures Thursday will be between 40 and 45 Degrees. High temperatures Friday will be between 35 and 40 Degrees.

Tonight: An area of high pressure is expected to push off of the New England coast tonight as a low pressure system moves northeastward from the Tennessee and Ohio Valleys. We will see an increase in clouds tonight and some light snow may begin across Western Mass by sunrise Saturday morning. Low temperatures tonight will be near 25 Degrees. Saturday: That low pressure system will move across central New England during the day on Saturday. At this time, it appears that we will see it snow for a while on Saturday morning before it changes to sleet and then rain by midday Saturday. Snow amounts on Saturday morning will be quite light with most areas receiving a dusting. The exception may be across the Berkshires and along and north of Route 2 where around one inch of snow accumulation may occur. During Saturday afternoon, some scattered rain showers are expected with high temperatures between 40 and 45 Degrees. Saturday Night: A weak high pressure system will build in on Saturday night. This means that any leftover rain showers will end by sunset Saturday with skies remaining generally cloudy throughout Saturday night. Low temperatures Saturday night will be near 30 Degrees. Sunday & Sunday Night: Yet another low pressure system and its associated frontal system will push through New England on Sunday. This means that skies on Sunday will be cloudy and rain will move into Western and Central Mass by midday Sunday with the rain continuing through Sunday afternoon and Sunday evening before ending late Sunday night. High temperatures on Sunday will be near 45 Degrees. Low temperatures on Sunday night will be between 35 and 40 Degrees. Monday: A partly sunny day is expected on Monday with high temperatures between 45 and 50 Degrees. Tuesday: A trough of low pressure will pass through our area late Monday night and Tuesday morning. This trough may contain just enough energy and moisture to produce some snow shower activity late Monday night and Tuesday morning. Behind this trough, a shot of very cold air will move into the area during the day Tuesday. High temperatures on Tuesday will be between 30 and 35 Degrees. Wednesday Through Friday: Dry weather with slowly warming temperatures are expected for the second half of next week. After a quite cold Tuesday night with low temperatures in the teens, Wednesday is expected to be a sunny day with high temperatures between 40 and 45 Degrees. Thursday will be partly sunny with high temperatures near 45 Degrees. Next Friday is expected to be partly sunny with high temperatures near 45 Degrees.
