Cold Weather This Weekend & Turning Windy For Sunday Across Western & Central Mass

For The Rest Of This Afternoon & Tonight: A persistent northwesterly wind flow will remain in place across the region throughout the rest of this afternoon through tonight. This means that skies the rest of this afternoon will feature lots of sunshine with temperatures near 40 Degrees. Winds will be Southwest at 10 to 20 mph. Skies tonight will start out clear with skies becoming partly cloudy late tonight. In addition, there may be a stray snow shower or two towards morning. Low temperatures will be between 18 and 23 Degrees. Winds will be Southwest at 10 to 20 mph. Sunday: That northwesterly wind flow will remain in place across the region during Sunday. At the same time this is occurring, it is expected that a trough of low pressure will move across northern New England during Sunday while a surface low pressure system passes well east of New England. This all means that Sunday is going to be an unusually cold day for mid and late November. In addition, it is also expected to be windy on Sunday, which will put a real bite into the air. Skies on Sunday will be partly sunny. In addition, I think that there will be some scattered snow showers during the mid and late afternoon hours, especially across areas north of the Mass Pike. High temperatures Sunday will struggle to make it to 35 Degrees. Winds will be West at 15 to 25 mph with gusts to 35 mph. Wind chill temperatures will be between 15 and 20 Degrees during the morning and between 20 and 25 Degrees during the afternoon. Monday Through Wednesday: The first half of next week looks fine in terms of weather with no holiday travel weather issues expected. Monday looks sunny and continued cold with high temperatures between 34 and 39 Degrees. Winds will be West to Southwest at 10 to 20 mph with gusts to 30 mph. Tuesday and Wednesday both look sunny to partly sunny with high temperatures both days near 45 Degrees. Thanksgiving Day: A partly sunny day is expected with no weather travel issues expected on Thanksgiving Day. High temperatures will be near 45 Degrees. Late Next Week Through Next Weekend: It looks like the weather may become much more of an issue as an area of low pressure heads northeastward towards our area. The questions that still need to be answered with this storm are what is the exact track of this storm going to be and how much cold air will this storm tap into. Both questions are important because it’ll tell the difference between an all rain event, a mixed precipitation system or a storm that brings all snow to the area next weekend. Latest weather guidance seems to suggest that this storm system may track either right over southern New England or over New York State and northern New England. Both tracks would cause copious amounts of mild air to spread into the area leading to all rain from later Friday through all day Saturday. That said, we are still talking about a forecast storm that’s still 6 to 7 days away from happening and a lot can change between now and then. At this point, I think that we may see rain overspread the area during the afternoon on Friday. The rain then looks to continue through Friday night and much of Saturday before ending late next Saturday. I will be keeping a close eye on this storm and will have updates as needed in the coming days.
