2 To 3 Inches Of Rain & 50 mph Wind Gusts Are Still Expected Sunday Night Through Monday Morning

For The Rest Of This Afternoon & Tonight: Dry weather is expected throughout the rest of this afternoon and tonight, although skies will be generally cloudy.

Temperatures the rest of this afternoon will be around 50 Degrees. Low temperatures tonight will be between 35 and 40 Degrees. Winds the rest of this afternoon will be South at 5 to 10 mph. Winds tonight will be South at 5 to 10 mph.

Sunday: A strong frontal system is expected to push towards our area during Sunday. Skies throughout the day on Sunday will be cloudy and there is likely to be an increase in shower activity during the afternoon. The really heavy rain is expected to hold off until Sunday night, though.

High temperatures will be between 55 and 60 Degrees. Winds will be South at 15 to 25 mph with gusts to 35 mph, especially during the afternoon.

Sunday Night Through Monday: A strong frontal system will bring both heavy rain with the threat for flooding and some strong southerly winds during Sunday night and Monday morning. Once this front moves through, it is expected that it’ll usher in a rapid drop in temperatures, along with the possibility of rain changing to snow for a little bit during late Monday morning and early Monday afternoon. I do think that the biggest threat from this system will be the heavy rainfall, which will lead to flood issues across the entire area.

Let’s Detail What To Expect From Sunday Night Through Monday:

Sunday Night: Rain, which will frequently be heavy at times, is expected throughout Sunday night. This will lead to significant ponding of water on roads along with the possibility of flooded out roads as well. The rivers and streams across the area are likely to see significant rises, but they should remain just below flood stage. That said, this is something that’ll need to be watched closely.

In addition to the heavy rain, it will be windy throughout Sunday night with South winds of 20 to 30 mph with gusts to 40 to 50 mph.

Temperatures on Sunday night will remain in the 50s.

Monday Morning: Heavy rain is expected to continue through the mid-morning hours of Monday, which will make for a downright miserable morning commute on Monday. In addition to this, it’s possible that a rumble or two of thunder is possible when the front moves through around mid-morning Monday.

Once that front moves through, it’ll be accompanied by a pretty rapid fall in temperatures from the 50s around the Monday morning commute into the mid to upper 30s by late morning Monday. How quickly the dry air pushes into the area behind the front is something that’ll need to be watched closely as it’s possible that a low pressure system could form along the front as it moves through. Should this occur, it could lead to the precipitation hanging on for longer than what usually occurs with frontal passages. The reason why this is so important is because a slower end of the precipitation combined with the rapid fall in temperatures may lead to the rain flipping over to some snow for a few hours late Monday morning into early Monday afternoon. Any snow accumulations late Monday morning and early Monday afternoon will be extremely minor with most areas seeing a dusting of snow. The exception could be across Berkshires where 1 to 2 inches or so of snow is possible.

It will continue to be windy during Monday morning with West to Northwest winds of 20 to 30 mph with gusts to 40 to 50 mph.

Total Rainfall Amounts From Sunday Night Through Monday Morning are expected to be in the 2 to 3 inch range. These rainfall totals will be enough to produce flooding of low-lying areas, areas that are prone to flooding, areas that have poor drainage and urban areas. The rivers and streams should remain just barely below flood stage, but this is something that’ll need to be watched closely as flooding of rivers, streams and creeks are certainly possible.

Monday Afternoon: Any snow on the backside of that front should end by early afternoon with some breaks in the clouds likely by late afternoon. Temperatures will continue to fall into the low to mid 30s by mid to late afternoon. At this point though, I’m not expecting any sort of a flash freeze as surfaces will have sufficient amounts of time to dry out before temperatures reach the freezing point.

It will still be windy during Monday afternoon with West to Northwest winds of 15 to 25 mph with gusts to 35 mph.

Tuesday Through Friday: Much quieter weather is expected for the middle and later parts of next week as a high pressure system builds over the region.

Tuesday is expected to be sunny to partly sunny with high temperatures between 40 and 45 Degrees.

Wednesday and Thursday both are expected to be sunny to partly sunny with high temperatures between 35 and 40 Degrees.

Friday will be sunny to partly sunny with high temperatures near 45 Degrees.
