For This Afternoon: Sunny to partly sunny skies with continued windy conditions are expected this afternoon across the entire area. Temperatures this afternoon will be between 35 and 40 Degrees. Winds this afternoon will be northwest at 15 to 25 mph with gusts to 35 mph. Tonight: An area of high pressure is expected to push to the east during tonight. Skies this evening will be clear to partly cloudy with skies becoming cloudy after midnight tonight. Low temperatures tonight will be between 25 and 30 Degrees. Winds tonight will be west at 5 to 10 mph. Wednesday: An area of low pressure is expected to track to the southeast of Nantucket during Wednesday afternoon bringing with it snow to the entire area Wednesday afternoon and Wednesday evening. Snow will overspread the entire area by about midday Wednesday. The snow is then expected to continue through all of Wednesday afternoon and into Wednesday evening. It’s possible that the snow will come down at a moderate rate at times, especially during the mid and late afternoon hours. The snow is expected to come to an end between about 8 pm and 10 pm Wednesday evening. Snow accumulations Wednesday afternoon and Wednesday evening are expected to be between 2 and 3 inches across the entire area. Most of the snow accumulation will occur on cold surfaces such as grassy surfaces, decks and car tops. Most roads and other pavement surfaces will probably remain wet as it may be hard for the snow to really stick on these surfaces. High temperatures Wednesday will be near 35 Degrees. Low temperatures Wednesday night will be between 25 and 30 Degrees. Thursday Through Friday: An area of high pressure will control the weather on both Thursday and Friday. Thursday and Friday both look partly sunny. High temperatures on both Thursday and Friday will be between 45 and 50 Degrees. Saturday: An area of low pressure is quickly strengthen as it heads northeastward across New England during the day on Saturday. The track of this storm system is going to be important in determining whether we see all rain, an actual snowstorm or mostly rain that changes to snow at the end of the storm. My thinking at this point is that the track of the storm should be such that we should probably rain for most of the storm with a changeover to a little bit of snow at the end of the storm. So, rain should begin during Saturday morning with the rain continuing into Saturday afternoon. By late Saturday afternoon, I think that we will see a change from rain to snow beginning across Western Mass during the late afternoon hours of Saturday and then possibly across Central Mass during Saturday evening. Any snow should come to an end by midnight Saturday night. Rainfall amounts of around one inch looks likely across the entire area. As for snow amounts near the end of this storm, it’s possible that 1 to 3 inches of snow accumulation could occur across Western Mass late Saturday afternoon and Saturday evening. As for Central Mass, perhaps up to one inch of snow accumulation is possible Saturday evening. High temperatures Saturday will be between 45 and 50 Degrees with temperatures falling into the 30s by late afternoon. Low temperatures Saturday night will be near 20 Degrees. Sunday: An area of high pressure is expected to build into the area on Sunday bringing with it partly sunny skies and windy conditions. High temperatures Sunday will be near 35 Degrees.
