For The Rest Of Today: Skies will remain sunny through midday, however, a trough of low pressure will push through southern New England this afternoon. This means that we will see a mixture of sun and clouds this afternoon and there may be a couple of snow flurries around very late this afternoon. High temperatures this afternoon will be between 26 and 31 Degrees.

Tonight: That trough of low pressure will continue to push across southern New England this evening. This trough will produce a few snow showers, mainly along and north of the Mass Pike this evening before they push offshore after midnight. Low temperatures tonight will be near 10 Degrees. Winds late tonight will become gusty with wind gusts of 30 mph out of the west-northwest. These gusty winds will produce wind chill temperatures of between 5 below zero and 10 below zero.

Wednesday: A ridge of high pressure will build into the area during Wednesday. Skies on Wednesday will be partly sunny with high temperatures between 24 and 29 Degrees. Winds on Wednesday will be gusty with West to Northwest winds of 10 to 20 mph with gusts to 30 mph. Wind chill temperatures on Wednesday will be around Zero throughout the day.

Updated Snowstorm Forecast For Tonight Into Early Monday Morning: Based on the latest high resolution weather data, I am increasing forecast snow totals across much of Western and Central Mass.

Snow will overspread Western and Central Mass between 7 and 9 pm this evening with the snow expected to continue all night long tonight.

Heavy snow with snowfall rates of 1 to 2 inches per hour are expected across Western and Central Mass from about midnight tonight to about 6 am Monday morning across Western Mass and from about midnight tonight to about 7 am Monday morning across Central Mass.

Snow will come to an end from west to east during Monday morning – first across Western Mass by 7 to 8 am with snow ending across Central Mass by 8 to 9 am Monday morning.

Snowfall totals are expected to range from 4 to 6 inches across the upper Pioneer Valley to 6 to 9 inches of snow across the rest of Western Mass to 9 to 12 inches of snow accumulation across a large part of Central Mass. The hardest hit areas are expected to be from about Hartford through Worcester to about Boston where upwards of 8 to 12 inches of snow is expected.

Overall, this is expected to be a decent snowstorm which will impact the Monday morning commute. Plan now for a lot of delays and slow going. This means leave yourself plenty of extra time to get to your destination Monday morning.
