Tonight: A wave of low pressure is expected to pass well to our south tonight. This storm could be just close enough to bring areas along and south of the Mass Pike a little bit of light snow between about midnight tonight and 5 am Thursday morning. Any snow accumulations tonight will be a dusting. North of the Mass Pike, skies tonight will be cloudy and dry. Low temperatures tonight will be near 15 Degrees. Thursday: An area of high pressure is expected to build into the area during the day on Thursday. Any morning clouds will give way to a mixture of sunshine and clouds during the afternoon. High temperatures Thursday will be between 25 and 30 Degrees. Friday & Saturday: Dry weather looks likely for Friday and Saturday. Partly sunny skies are expected on Friday with high temperatures near 25 Degrees. A cloudier day is expected on Saturday as a storm system approaches us from the southwest. High temperatures Saturday will be near 25 Degrees. Saturday Night & Sunday: An area of low pressure is expected to track off of the Mid-Atlantic coast and move to the east-northeast. It is looking increasingly more likely that this storm may pass far enough to the south & not have enough energy to produce a heavy snowfall on Sunday. Instead, it appears that some snow will occur on Saturday night and Sunday morning. Snow amounts may range from 1 to 2 inches from the upper Pioneer Valley of Western Mass to northern Worcester County (including Fitchburg, Orange, Amherst and Northampton) to 2 to 4 inches from the lower Pioneer Valley of Western Mass to southern Worcester County (including Springfield, Sturbridge and Worcester). Low temperatures Saturday night will be near 25 Degrees. High temperatures Sunday will be near 30 Degrees. Maybe A Significant Winter Storm For Tuesday Afternoon & Tuesday Night: There is the potential for yet another coastal storm to be concerned about for Tuesday afternoon and Tuesday night. It appears that a weaker storm on Saturday night and Sunday morning will lead to a much more amplified and energized weather pattern for early next week. The reason why is because an upper level ridge will build in behind this weekend’s system leading to a deeper trough of low pressure to take hold across the southern and eastern United States. This, in turn, could lead to the formation of a significant storm system that moves up along the East Coast of the United States. All of this means is that we need to really keep an eye on this storm as it could bring significant snow and possibly even some freezing rain and sleet to all of Western and Central Mass throughout Tuesday afternoon and Tuesday night. This storm is still 6 days away and a lot can change between now and then, so I will be keeping close tabs on this storm & will keep you updated. Unfortunately, we are far from done with dealing with snow and ice threats as there is the potential for yet another storm that could bring snow and ice to the entire area next Thursday night and next Friday.
