A Soaking Rain Is Expected Late Tuesday Night Through Wednesday Across Western & Central Mass

For Tonight: Any leftover showers of rain and snow will end early this evening with skies becoming partly cloudy by midnight. Clear to partly cloudy skies are then expected during the after midnight hours as a high pressure system builds into the area. Low temperatures will be near 25 Degrees. Winds will be Northwest at 5 to 10 mph. Monday & Monday Night: An area of high pressure will control the weather throughout Monday and Monday night. Skies on Monday will be sunny with high temperatures between 35 and 40 Degrees. Winds will be Northwest at 10 to 20 mph. Clear skies are expected on Monday night with low temperatures between 17 and 22 Degrees. Winds will be North at 5 to 10 mph. Tuesday: That high pressure system is expected to push to the east during Tuesday as an area of low pressure begins to approach our area. Skies will start out sunny during the morning with an increase in clouds expected during the afternoon. High temperatures will be between 40 and 45 Degrees. Winds will be East at 5 to 10 mph. Tuesday Night & Wednesday: A strong storm system is expected to bring snow to start with late Tuesday night that’ll change to all rain during the day on Wednesday. This likely will be a soaking rainfall across the entire area. An area of low pressure is expected to develop near the south coast of New England by Wednesday morning and head east-northeastward through the Gulf of Maine during late Wednesday. Precipitation is expected to overspread the entire area during Tuesday evening and initially it appears that the precipitation will start out as snow across much of the area due to temperatures starting out in the low 30s. There’s the possibility that the snow could last for up to 4 to 6 hours during Tuesday night before it changes to rain from south to north during the after midnight hours. Areas that could hang on to the snow a little longer include the Worcester Hills and the Berkshires where it may not change to rain until about sunrise Wednesday morning. Snowfall amounts during Tuesday night may range from 1 to 2 inches across areas near and south of the Mass Pike and across the Connecticut River Valley to 2 to 3 inches or so across the Worcester Hills and across the Berkshires. Be aware that slippery travel is likely for a while during Tuesday night due to the initially falling snow. Turning to Wednesday, rain is expected throughout the day and the rain could be heavy at times. Given that the rain will occur on one of the busiest travel days of the year, slow-going traffic is likely with significant delays likely. Anyone flying in or out of any of the airports in Southern New England, expect flight delays due to rain and gusty winds. The rain is expected to come to an end by Wednesday evening with total rainfall amounts of around one inch expected. High temperatures Wednesday will be between 45 and 50 Degrees. Thanksgiving Day: A sunny to partly sunny day is expected during Thanksgiving Day. High temperatures will be between 40 and 45 Degrees. Thanksgiving Weekend Weather Outlook: It’s possible that the weather during next weekend could be a little more stormy than previously thought as an area of low pressure tracks near the south coast of New England during Saturday. Friday looks partly sunny with high temperatures between 35 and 40 Degrees. Saturday could be cloudy with the possibility of snow or a snow-rain mix across the area. High temperatures will be between 35 and 40 Degrees. Next Sunday looks partly sunny with high temperatures near 40 Degrees.
