A Wintry Mix Of Precipitation Expected From Thursday Afternoon Until Friday Evening

For Tonight: Some very spotty and isolated rain shower activity is expected this evening with skies remaining cloudy throughout the night tonight. Low temperatures tonight will be near 35 Degrees. Winds will be Southwest at 5 to 10 mph. Wednesday: Cloudy skies are expected to begin the day with skies becoming partly sunny during the afternoon. High temperatures will be around 45 Degrees. Winds will be West at 10 to 20 mph. Thursday Through Friday: An area of low pressure is expected to track near the south coast of New England by Thursday night. Precipitation out ahead of this storm system is expected to overspread the entire area during Thursday afternoon. At this point, it appears that the precipitation will start out as rain across much of the area. The exception may be near and north of Route 2 and across the Berkshires where freezing rain is a possibility during Thursday afternoon. As we get into Thursday night, it appears that colder air will try to bleed into the region causing the precipitation to change to snow from north to south. First across the Berkshires and near and north of Route 2 during the evening and then across the remaining parts of Western and Central Mass very late at night on Thursday night. During Friday, that low pressure system is expected to move to the east, however, there is the possibility that a trough of low pressure could hang back leading to a continuation of snow across the region during the day on Friday. The greatest impacts from this storm looks to be over the Berkshires and over the northern Worcester Hills where icy conditions Thursday afternoon will lead to a rough afternoon and evening commute. This will be followed by accumulating snow for Thursday night and Friday that could amount to up to 2 to 4 inches or so. This could lead to some slow going travel conditions for the Friday morning commute. Further south, snow amounts of 1 to 2 inches are possible across areas near and north of the Mass Pike later Thursday night into Friday. Across areas south of the Mass Pike, one inch or less of snow accumulation is possible late Thursday night through Friday. High temperatures Thursday will range from the low 30s across the northern Worcester Hills and the Berkshires to near 40 Degrees across areas near and south of the Mass Pike. Low temperatures Thursday night will be near 30 Degrees. High temperatures Friday will be between 30 and 35 Degrees. Saturday & Sunday: An area of high pressure looks to be in control of the weather throughout this weekend. Saturday looks like it’ll feature a mixture of sun and clouds with high temperatures near 35 Degrees. Sunday looks partly sunny with high temperatures near 40 Degrees.
