For Tonight: Clear skies are expected for tonight with low temperatures between 20 and 25 Degrees. Winds will be North at 8 to 16 mph. Saturday: A northeasterly wind flow with lots of low-level moisture will cause an area of low clouds to push westward during the day. The big question is how far west will these clouds move into Southern New England. Current indications are that far Western Mass will be sunny to partly sunny throughout the day on Saturday. As for the rest of Western and Central Mass, while skies should start out sunny everywhere, things look to become cloudy as far west as the I-190 and I-395 corridor by midday with sunny to partly sunny skies expected during the midday hour across areas west of I-190 and I-395. During the afternoon, cloudy skies look to spread as far west as the I-91 corridor by mid-afternoon with cloudy skies expected everywhere along and east of I-91 by late afternoon Saturday. High temperatures will be near 35 Degrees. Winds will be Northeast at 5 to 10 mph. Sunday: That persistent northeasterly wind flow looks to continue during Sunday while an area of low pressure tracks across the Great Lakes region reaching western New York State by evening. Skies throughout the day Sunday will be cloudy across the entire area. Snow is expected to overspread Western Mass during the late afternoon hours with that snow holding off to begin until Sunday evening across Central Mass. High temperatures will be between 30 and 35 Degrees. Winds will be Northeast at 5 to 10 mph. Accumulating Snow Is Expected Sunday Night Through Monday Morning: That low pressure system is expected to move on a southeasterly direction from Western New York State during Sunday evening to the south of New England by late Sunday night and Monday morning. It will be snowing everywhere across Western and Central Mass by Sunday evening with the snow expected to continue throughout the overnight hours of Sunday night and the first part of Monday morning. The snow looks to come to an end everywhere by about mid-morning Monday. As for snow totals, at this point, it appears that 1 to 2 inches of snow accumulation will occur across Central Mass. Western parts of Mass look to receive about 2 to 3 inches of total snow accumulation. The exception will be across areas west of I-91 where 3 to 4 inches of snow may accumulate. Even though this is expected to be a snowfall with light accumulations, it’ll still be enough for roads, parking lots and driveways to become snow covered during Sunday night and the first part of Monday morning. This means that slippery travel is a good bet for Sunday night into early Monday morning. Skies are then expected to become partly sunny by midday with partly sunny skies expected during the afternoon. Low temperatures Sunday night will be near 25 Degrees. High temperatures Monday will be near 35 Degrees.
Tuesday Through Thursday: Quiet, but cold weather is expected for the middle part of next week as a deep upper level trough of low pressure sits over our area. Tuesday is expected to be sunny with high temperatures near 35 Degrees. Wednesday looks sunny with high temperatures between 35 and 40 Degrees. Thursday is expected to be partly sunny with high temperatures between 35 and 40 Degrees.
