A Significant Storm Has The Potential To Bring Rain, Snow & Wind On Wednesday & Thursday Of Next Week Across Western & Central Mass

For Tonight: The low pressure system that brought 1 to 2 inches of rain to the area yesterday will continue to move away tonight.

This means that clear skies can be expected tonight with low temperatures near 30 Degrees. It will continue to be windy throughout tonight with West to Northwest winds of 20 to 30 mph with gusts to 40-45 mph.

Saturday: A sunny day is expected on Saturday with high temperatures between 50 and 55 Degrees. Winds will be West to Northwest at 15 to 25 mph with gusts to 35 mph.

Saturday Night: A quick moving low pressure system is expected to pass well south of New England during Saturday night.

Skies on Saturday night are expected to be partly cloudy and there may be a very spotty and isolated snow flurry or two. Low temperatures will be between 30 and 35 Degrees. Winds will be West to Northwest at 5 to 10 mph.

Easter Sunday: A very isolated snow flurry is possible first thing in the morning. Other than that, skies during Sunday will feature a mixture of sunshine and clouds. High temperatures will be between 51 and 56 Degrees. Winds will be West to Northwest at 10 to 20 mph.

Monday: A mixture of sunshine and clouds can be expected during Monday. It’s possible that some scattered showers could occur across areas south of the Mass Pike as another low pressure system passes well south of the area.

High temperatures will be near 55 Degrees.

Tuesday: The weather gradually turns more unsettled during Tuesday as a low pressure system approaches the area from the Ohio Valley.

Skies will be cloudy on Tuesday with rain overspreading the area during the afternoon. High temperatures will be between 45 and 50 Degrees.

A Significant Storm System Has The Potential To Bring Rain, Snow & Wind From Wednesday Through Thursday: A strong storm system is expected to develop near the Mid-Atlantic coast during Wednesday and then crawl northeastward to near the Cape by Thursday. All of the major weather forecast models agree on the evolution of this storm system

Accompanying this storm looks to be an influx of an anomalous amount of cold air and this is something that’s going to have to be watched VERY closely as it could mean an early Spring snowstorm across parts of Western and Central Mass late Wednesday afternoon, Wednesday night and Thursday. That said, the amount of snow that occurs is going to highly depend on the exact track, speed and strength of this storm system.

For now, I think that we’ll probably start out as rain during Wednesday morning that changes to snow during Wednesday afternoon and Wednesday evening across the Worcester Hills and the Berkshires. Meanwhile, the Connecticut River Valley and areas south of the Mass Pike looks to remain as rain during Wednesday afternoon.

During Wednesday night, there is the potential for a change to snow everywhere across Western and Central Mass. This snow looks to continue through Thursday.

In addition to the rain and snow, there is also the potential for quite a bit of wind to occur with this storm. These windy conditions combined with the wet and heavy snow could lead to issues with downed trees and power lines.

The area that looks to have the highest chance of heavy amounts of snow looks to be across the northern Worcester Hills and the Berkshires. The areas that are lower in elevation, especially the Connecticut River Valley, may end up with much lower amounts of snow.

This is DEFINITELY a storm that is going to have to be watched very closely in the coming days.

Temperatures on Wednesday will be between 35 and 40 Degrees. Temperatures on Wednesday night looks to fall back to near 30 Degrees. Temperatures on Thursday look to remain in the 30s.
