1-3 Inches Of Snow Tuesday Night Will Become A Soaking Rain During Wednesday

For The Rest Of This Afternoon: An area of high pressure will continue to control the weather throughout the rest of this afternoon. This means that skies will be sunny with temperatures between 35 and 40 Degrees. Winds will be North at 10 to 20 mph with gusts to 30 mph. Tonight: That high pressure system will continue to control the weather throughout tonight. Skies will be clear to partly cloudy throughout tonight with low temperatures between 15 and 20 Degrees. Winds will be North at 5 to 10 mph. Tuesday: Plenty of sunshine is expected throughout Tuesday morning. Increasing and thickening clouds are then expected during Tuesday afternoon as a low pressure system approaches us from the Great Lakes region. High temperatures will be between 35 and 40 Degrees. Winds will be North at 5 to 10 mph in the morning and Southeast at 5 to 10 mph in the afternoon. Tuesday Night & Wednesday: An area of low pressure is expected to take shape off of the Mid-Atlantic coast during Tuesday night and head northeastward reaching the area around the Cape by Wednesday evening. This storm system looks to initially bring a decent burst of snow during Tuesday night that will accumulate 1 to 3 inches. Milder air then pushes into the area turning the snow to rain by Wednesday morning with a soaking rain then expected during the day Wednesday. Snow will overspread the entire area between about 8 and 10 pm Tuesday evening. This snow then looks to continue through and past midnight on Tuesday night across much of the area. It’s also possible that the snow could come down fairly hard at times during Tuesday night with slippery roads likely. As we get into the later parts of the night on Tuesday night, the snow looks to change to rain from south to north starting with the Pioneer Valley and areas near and south of the Mass Pike by 1-2 am or so. The changeover from snow to rain should reach the Route 2 corridor and the Berkshires by 4 to 5 am Wednesday morning and it will likely be raining everywhere by sunrise Wednesday. Snowfall amounts during Tuesday night may range from 1 to 2 inches across areas around and south of the Mass Pike and across the Connecticut River Valley to 2 to 3 inches or so across the Worcester Hills (especially the northern Worcester Hills) and across the Berkshires.

Turning to Wednesday, a wind-swept rain is expected throughout the day and the rain could be heavy at times. Given that the rain will occur on one of the busiest travel days of the year, slow-going traffic is likely with significant delays likely. Anyone flying in or out of any of the airports in Southern New England, expect flight delays due to rain and gusty winds. The rain is expected to come to an end by Wednesday evening with total rainfall amounts of around one inch expected. Temperatures on Tuesday night will start out between 30 and 35 Degrees during the evening and then rise to 35 to 40 Degrees towards morning. High temperatures Wednesday will be between 45 and 50 Degrees. Winds on Tuesday night will be Southeast at 15 to 25 mph with gusts to 30 to 35 mph. Winds on Wednesday will be East at 15 to 25 mph with gusts to 35 mph in the morning and Northwest at 10 to 20 mph with gusts to 30 mph in the afternoon. Thanksgiving Day: A sunny to partly sunny day is expected during Thanksgiving Day. High temperatures will be near 45 Degrees. Thanksgiving Weekend Weather Outlook: Friday looks partly sunny with high temperatures near 45 Degrees. The weather for Saturday and Sunday needs to be watched closely as a low pressure system will be passing somewhere near or offshore of the south coast of New England. Whether we see rain or not will depend on the track of the low pressure system. For now, I’m going with cloudy skies with the possibility of some rain during Saturday with a mixture of sun and clouds for Sunday. High temperatures Saturday will be near 45 Degrees. High temperatures Sunday will be between 40 and 45 Degrees.
