A Scattering Of Showers Can Be Expected This Afternoon Across Western & Central Mass

For This Afternoon: Scattered showers can be expected this afternoon as a piece of upper level energy combined with some very cold air aloft. This will lead to an unstable atmosphere across the entire area causing the formation of hit or miss showers this afternoon. It should be noted that some of the heavier showers could produce small hail or even a rumble or two of thunder. Temperatures this afternoon will be around 55 Degrees. Winds will be Northwest at 10 to 20 mph. Tonight & Tuesday: Any leftover showers will come to an end this evening with mainly dry weather expected from later tonight through Tuesday. Skies tonight will be cloudy with low temperatures near 45 Degrees. Winds will be North at 5 to 10 mph. Tuesday looks like there will be a mixture of sunshine and clouds throughout the day. There could be a very isolated shower or two during the afternoon, but a majority of the area will be dry. High temperatures will be between 55 and 60 Degrees. Winds will be North at 5 to 10 mph. Wednesday Through Friday: Drier weather looks to move into the area for Wednesday and Thursday with lots of sunshine expected both days. High temperatures Wednesday will be between 60 and 65 Degrees. High temperatures Thursday will be near 65 Degrees. Turning to Friday, a frontal system is expected to head eastward while a coastal low pressure system takes shape near the southeastern coast of the United States. This all means that there will be an increase in clouds during the day on Friday. In addition, some showers may move in by late in the day. High temperatures will be near 65 Degrees. Weekend Weather Forecast: The combination of that frontal system pushing across the area and a strengthening low pressure system that looks to track to near the Cape by late Saturday means that a washout looks quite possible for at least the first half of the weekend. Saturday looks possibly wet with rain all day long and that rain could be heavy at times. High temperatures will be between 60 and 65 Degrees. As that low pressure system pulls away towards Maine, it has the potential to strengthen rapidly. This means that Sunday could be quite windy, along with a mixture of sunshine and clouds and some scattered afternoon showers. High temperatures will be near 55 Degrees.
