For The Rest Of Today: An area of high pressure will control our weather for the rest of today with plenty of sunshine expected. High temperatures this afternoon will be between 45 and 50 Degrees.

Tonight: A piece of energy is expected to track across northern New England tonight. The big question is how much of the precipitation connected to this piece of energy will impact southern New England. At this point, only far northern Worcester County has the best chance of seeing a bit of light snow or a rain/snow mix between 10 pm and 1 am tonight. Elsewhere across Western and Central Mass, cloudy skies are expected tonight with low temperatures between 28 and 32 Degrees.

Thursday: More clouds than sunshine is expected on Thursday with high temperatures between 52 and 57 Degrees.

Friday: A strong low pressure system is expected to track from the upper Great Lakes into Quebec, Canada pulling a cold front across southern New England during Friday. Fairly widespread showers are expected on Friday and a rumble of thunder is a possibility during Friday afternoon.

High temperatures Friday will be between 55 and 60 Degrees. The combination of quickly melting snowpack and the rainfall on Friday could lead to some flooding, especially in areas that have poor drainage.

Saturday: Partly sunny, windy and mild weather is expected on Saturday. High temperatures Saturday will be between 49 and 54 Degrees.

Sunday & Monday: Sunny to partly sunny skies, but with slightly cooler temperatures are expected on both Sunday and Monday. High temperatures Sunday will be between 40 and 45 Degrees. High temperatures Monday will be near 40 Degrees.

This Afternoon: A mixture of sun and clouds can be expected this afternoon and it will be mild with high temperatures between 45 and 50 Degrees.

Tonight: A mixture of clouds and stars can be expected tonight with low temperatures between 25 and 30 Degrees.

Tuesday: Tuesday is expected to feature generally partly sunny skies, however, it will be windy and slightly chillier as compared to today. High temperatures Tuesday will be between 40 and 45 Degrees. Northwest winds of 10 to 20 mph with gusts to 30 mph can be expected on Tuesday.

Wednesday: A sunny to partly sunny day is expected on Wednesday with high temperatures between 44 and 48 Degrees.

Thursday is expected to be a partly sunny day with high temperatures near 50 Degrees.

Friday: A strong low pressure system moving from the upper Great Lakes into Quebec, Canada will bring a showery, windy and mild day on Friday. Some of the showers could be heavy in intensity and it is not out of the question that we could have a rumble or two of thunder. High temperatures Friday will be between 55 and 59 Degrees. Southwest winds are expected to gust to 30 to 40 mph at times.

This Weekend & Beyond: This weekend’s weather looks generally sunny with high temperatures Saturday between 45 and 50 Degrees and high temperatures Sunday near 40 Degrees.

The weather for next week looks “interesting” as we may turn back to winter for a while just as we move towards the first day of Spring. There are strong signals in the weather data that suggest that we are going to have to watch for a possible coastal storm during the middle part of next week (March 20 or 21). Should this storm track close enough to us, it could bring accumulating snow to our area next Wednesday or next Thursday. Way too early to talk specifics and at this point, it is just something to keep an eye on.

For The Rest Of Today: An area of high pressure will provide quite a bit in the way of sunshine across Western and Central Mass the rest of today. High temperatures this afternoon will be between 42 and 47 Degrees.

1 To 3 Inches Of Snow & Sleet Accumulation Sunday Morning Changes To Freezing Rain & Rain Sunday Afternoon: Even though a strengthening area of low pressure will be passing well to our west on Sunday, there is expected to be enough cold air locked in so that Sunday is likely to be a very messy day in terms of snow, sleet, freezing rain and rain.

Snow and sleet will overspread Western and Central Mass between 6 and 8 am Sunday morning. It is likely that a period of heavy snow and sleet will occur between about 9 am and 1 pm Sunday before the precipitation changes to some light freezing rain during the early afternoon hours. A quick 1 to 3 inches of snow and sleet accumulation is expected Sunday morning.

During Sunday afternoon, expect a gradual changeover from light freezing rain to light rain. The exception will be across the northern Worcester Hills, the Berkshires and the hilltowns of Western Mass where light freezing rain may last through the entire afternoon.

All precipitation with this system will end by Sunday evening.
