2 Chances For Winter Weather This Weekend Into Early Next Week Across Western & Central Mass

Tonight: A northwesterly wind flow will remain in place across the region tonight leading to cloudy skies to start the night. Skies will become partly cloudy after midnight tonight. Low temperatures will be near 25 Degrees. Winds will be Northwest at 10 to 20 mph with gusts to 30 mph. Wednesday: Skies start out partly sunny on Wednesday morning with cloudy skies expected during the afternoon. It will continue to be windy on Wednesday. High temperatures will be between 40 and 45 Degrees. Winds will be North at 10 to 20 mph with gusts to 30 mph. Thursday Through Friday: Thursday looks to feature a mixture of some sun and lots of clouds with high temperatures between 40 and 45 Degrees. Winds will be North at 10 to 20 mph with gusts to 30 mph. Friday is expected to be partly sunny with high temperatures near 45 Degrees. Two Chances For Winter Weather This Weekend Into Early Next Week: The amount of uncertainty in terms of what’s actually going to occur in terms of winter weather increases dramatically by this weekend into the first half of next week. The weather pattern this weekend is going to consist of an upper level trough of low pressure digging into the Ohio Valley leading to a coastal storm system that tracks somewhere near or to the south of Southern New England on Saturday. The big question is going to be the exact track of the low pressure system in relation to our area. The trends in the weather forecast guidance over the past 24 hours are for a further south track of this storm leading to any snow remaining over areas such as Long Island and New York City. The question though is this going to actually going to happen or will we see a further north track of this storm system in the end. Making things even more complicated in terms of a weather forecast is the potential for a second coastal storm system to be of concern to our area early next week. The track of this weekend’s storm will influence the ultimate track of the potential storm for early next week. All-in-all, there are a lot of moving parts that are going to come into play when trying to figure out what may occur between Saturday and next Tuesday. I will reiterate what I wrote yesterday – You need to still take any talk of a big snowstorm this weekend or early next week with a ton of salt because no one knows how the pattern is going to evolve and thus what sort of a storm we may or may not have. Bottom line is ignore the hype!! It’s entirely possible that one of the two storms could produce a decent snowfall across the region. That said, it’s also equally as possible that both storms could miss us to the south and leave us with no snow at all. There are so many more questions than answers at this point. I do think that we’ll start to get more answers as we head into tomorrow and Thursday with both potential storms. Here Are My Thoughts For Now: I think that we may have at least some snow with perhaps at least light amounts of accumulations during Saturday afternoon and Saturday night. For now, the area that has the greatest chances for accumulations Saturday afternoon and Saturday night look to be near and south of the Mass Pike. Sunday into Monday morning looks quiet as we wait for storm number 2. Additional snowfall with storm number 2 and this could be more widespread looks possible beginning Monday afternoon and continuing through Monday night and Tuesday morning. I am monitoring both storms extremely closely and will have many more updates for you in the coming days.
