For The Rest Of Today: An area of low pressure will move into southern Ontario by later today which will pull a warm front northward into parts of southern New England.

This means that widespread showers are expected throughout the rest of today and the rain will be heavy at times. In addition, a rumble or two of thunder is possible in some of the heavier rain bands today.

High temperatures this afternoon will be between 54 and 59 Degrees.

Tonight: Widespread showers with heavy rain at times along with a thunderstorm or two is expected tonight as a new area of low pressure forms near Cape Cod. Rainfall totals today through tonight are expected to range from one half of an inch (0.50) to one inch (1.00) across Western Mass with 1 to 1.50 inches of rain expected across Central Mass. This will lead to increased rises on an already swollen Connecticut River and sharp rises in water levels on the smaller rivers and streams across Western and Central Mass.

Low temperatures tonight will be between 44 and 49 Degrees.

Saturday: A cold front and any leftover showers will end during early Saturday morning with perhaps some brief partly sunny skies possible late Saturday morning. By Saturday afternoon, however, skies will become cloudy once again and there may be a brief shower or two.

High temperatures Saturday will be between 50 and 55 Degrees.

Sunday & Sunday Night: A new area of low pressure from the Great Lakes across southern New England during Sunday afternoon and Sunday evening.

Rain is expected to overspread Western and Central Mass Sunday afternoon and continue through Sunday evening before ending after midnight Sunday night.

High temperatures Sunday will be in the low 50s. Low temperatures Sunday night will be between 35 and 40 Degrees.

Turning To Next Week: Dry weather is expected on Monday with partly sunny skies expected and high temperatures between 55 and 60 Degrees.

Rain is expected on Tuesday with high temperatures near 55 Degrees.

Partly sunny skies are expected on Wednesday with high temperatures near 60 Degrees.

Another round of rain is expected for Thursday and Friday of next week with temperatures in the mid 50s to near 60 Degrees.

Heavy showers and thunderstorms are expected this afternoon across Western and Central Mass as a pool of colder air in the mid and upper levels of the atmosphere leads to an unstable air mass.

So, I think that by early afternoon, we will see widespread heavy showers push north and northwestward into Western and Central Mass and there is likely to be some isolated thunderstorms as well. Heavy showers with isolated thunderstorms likely will persist through the mid and late afternoon hours before slowly weakening and dissipating this evening.

These heavy showers and isolated thunderstorms will contain very heavy downpours and the risk for some small hail.

For The Rest Of Today: A mild and rather humid air mass has set up across Southern New England. A frontal boundary, which will be responsible for widespread significant severe weather across the Mid-Atlantic states & Southeastern United States, will remain to our west today.

This means that skies for the rest of today will be cloudy and there may be some very widely scattered showers this afternoon. High temperatures this afternoon will be near 70 Degrees and it will be humid. In addition, it will be windy the rest of today with southwest winds of 15 to 25 mph with gusts to 35 mph.

Heavy Rain At Times Tonight Through Saturday: That frontal boundary will very slowly move eastward tonight through Saturday and will push into western Mass by Saturday afternoon. This means that a band of showers with heavy rainfall will take its time moving into southern New England.

This means that scattered showers are expected this evening with widespread showers with heavy rain moving into Western Mass very late tonight and Saturday morning. This heavy rainfall will remain in place across Western Mass throughout a good part of Saturday before ending later Saturday afternoon. Across Central Mass, widespread showers with heavy rain will move in late Saturday morning or early Saturday afternoon and continue into Saturday evening. In addition, isolated thunderstorms are a possibility on Saturday across Western and Central Mass.

Rainfall amounts tonight through Saturday will average 1 to 2 inches with locally higher amounts possible, especially across Western Mass. This heavy rainfall will result in urban and poor drainage flooding. In addition, the heavy rainfall will exacerbate river flooding along the Connecticut River and may also cause rises in some of the smaller rivers and streams.

It will continue to be humid tonight and Saturday with low temperatures tonight in the 60 to 65 Degree range and high temperatures Saturday around 65 Degrees.

Saturday Night Through Easter Sunday: Scattered showers are expected to continue throughout Saturday night and Easter Sunday morning before ending during Sunday afternoon. Low temperatures Saturday night will be between 50 and 55 Degrees. High temperatures Easter Sunday will be near 65 Degrees.

Monday Through Tuesday: The weather looks to remain unsettled through Monday into possibly Tuesday as an upper level low pressure system remains stationary over our area and sends pieces of energy across southern New England.

This means that Monday will be cloudy and there will be some scattered showers around. High temperatures Monday will be near 65 Degrees.

Tuesday is expected to be mostly cloudy, however, it may stay dry most of the day. High temperatures Tuesday will be near 70 Degrees.

A cold front is expected to push across the area on Tuesday evening bringing the risk for some scattered showers and possibly a thunderstorm.

Wednesday Through Thursday: Sunshine is expected to return for both Wednesday and especially Thursday. High temperatures Wednesday will be between 60 and 65 Degrees. High temperatures Thursday will be near 65 Degrees.
