For The Rest Of Today: Generally hazy partial sunshine can be expected for the rest of today. The haze in the air is actually smoke from wildfires in Alberta, Canada that are being transported east and then southeastward by upper level winds.
I will be keeping an eye on Western Mass for any shower or thunderstorm activity late this afternoon. The coverage of the showers/thunderstorms will be very isolated and severe weather is not expected. All-in-all, it appears that a majority of Western and Central Mass will stay dry today.
High temperatures this afternoon will be between 79 and 84 Degrees.
Tonight: Any leftover very isolated shower and thunderstorm activity early this evening will come to an end towards midnight across Western Mass. Other than that, tonight is expected to be cloudy with low temperatures between 50 and 55 Degrees.
Sunday: Some early morning fog is possible before some partial sunshine makes an appearance by late Sunday morning with a mix of sun and clouds persisting into early Sunday afternoon.
A cold front is expected to push across southern New England during late Sunday afternoon into the first half of Sunday night. The atmosphere along and ahead of this cold front is expected to be moderately unstable and this means we are going to have to be on the lookout for a few strong to possibly severe thunderstorms across Western and Central Mass late Sunday afternoon and Sunday evening.
At this point, it appears that a line of showers and thunderstorms, a few that may be strong to possibly severe, will enter far Western Mass around 3-4 pm Sunday afternoon reaching the Pioneer Valley of Western Mass between 4 and 6 pm. This line of thunderstorms may then move across Worcester County between 5 pm and 8 pm Sunday. Any of the strong thunderstorms will be capable of producing torrential downpours, very gusty winds and frequent lightning. This will be something that I will be keeping a close eye on and I will update you as needed.
All shower and thunderstorm activity will end towards midnight Sunday night.
High temperatures Sunday afternoon will be between 75 and 80 Degrees.
Monday: A mixture of sunshine and clouds is expected on Monday and temperatures will be cooler. In addition, a few showers are expected from late Monday morning through Monday afternoon. Given the cold air mass that will push into southern New England on Monday, some small hail and locally gusty winds are possible with any shower activity.
High temperatures Monday will be near 65 Degrees.
Tuesday: A partly sunny day is expected on Tuesday with high temperatures between 65 and 70 Degrees.
