An Unsettled Weekend Of Weather Is Expected Across Western & Central Mass

Tonight & Friday: Quiet weather is expected during tonight and Friday as a high pressure system remains over the region. Skies tonight will be clear to partly cloudy with low temperatures between 45 and 50 Degrees. Winds will be East to Northeast at 5 to 10 mph. Friday is expected to be a sunny to partly sunny day with high temperatures between 65 and 70 Degrees. Winds will be Northeast at 5 to 10 mph. This Weekend: Very unsettled weather is expected throughout this weekend as a tropical system now organizing off of the Southeastern coast of the United States pushes its way northward reaching the Mid-Atlantic states by later Saturday and Sunday. Even though there are still some uncertainty with the forecast, it seems likely that a lengthy period of raw, wet, cloudy and windy weather is expected from all of Saturday right through Sunday. A couple of questions remain with the forecast and include how heavy will the rain be during Saturday and also will there be a second round of rainfall late Sunday into Monday. It appears that the first batch of rain will overspread the entire area during the mid and late morning hours of Saturday. The rain is then expected to fall at a moderate to heavy rate at times throughout Saturday afternoon into early Saturday evening. In addition to the rain, temperatures near 60 Degrees and Northeast winds of 10 to 20 mph with gusts to 30 mph throughout Saturday will make things feel downright raw. The first round of the rain will gradually come to an end during Saturday evening with cloudy skies expected from late Saturday night through possibly all of Sunday. Even though it’s going to be cloudy on Sunday, it’ll still be cool, raw and damp with temperatures between 60 and 65 Degrees and East to Northeast winds of 10 to 20 mph. It’s possible that a second round of mainly light to moderate rain will affect the region from late Sunday afternoon or Sunday evening into part of the day on Monday. Total rainfall amounts during this weekend may range from around one inch across areas near and north of Route 2 to between 1 and 2 inches of rainfall across the rest of Western and Central Mass. These rainfall totals will probably be enough to lead to flooding of roads, highways, underpasses and areas of poor drainage. Also, some of the area rivers and streams may go above flood stage as they are already running quite high.
