For This Afternoon: The storm system that brought the soaking rain on Sunday will continue to track across Atlantic Canada this afternoon. A high pressure system will continue to build into the area this afternoon.
The weather for this afternoon will feature a mixture of some sunshine and lots of clouds due to residual atmospheric moisture leftover from the storm system. High temperatures this afternoon will be between 45 and 50 Degrees.
Tonight Through Tuesday: An area of high pressure will bring dry weather to Western and Central Mass tonight and Tuesday.
Skies tonight should feature more clouds than stars, however, skies may become clear late tonight. Low temperatures tonight will be between 30 and 35 Degrees.
Tuesday looks sunny to partly sunny and quite nice with high temperatures between 50 and 55 Degrees.
Tuesday Night Through Wednesday Morning: High pressure will continue to control our weather on Tuesday night with clear to partly cloudy skies expected. Low temperatures Tuesday night will be near 35 Degrees.
Increasing clouds are expected on Wednesday morning well ahead of a eastward moving frontal system. Temperatures on Wednesday morning will quickly rise through the 40s and will be near 50 Degrees by midday.
Wednesday Afternoon & Wednesday Night: A strong cold front is expected to move across southern New England during the first half of Wednesday night. Skies on Wednesday afternoon will be cloudy and rain shower activity will increase by late afternoon. Fairly widespread rain shower activity is expected during Wednesday evening before ending after midnight.
In addition, south to southwest winds are expected to gust up to 20 to 30 mph during Wednesday afternoon and Wednesday evening. These winds are expected to shift into a northwesterly direction after midnight & will become quite gusty with wind gusts of up to 30 to 40 mph expected.
Thanksgiving Day into Friday: An extended period of strong northwest winds are expected from Thanksgiving Day through Friday across all of Western and Central Mass. Northwest winds are expected to gust up to 40 to 50 mph at times throughout the day on Thanksgiving right through Thursday night. On Friday, northwest winds are expected to gust up to 25 to 35 mph at times.
Skies on Thanksgiving Day will be partly sunny with high temperatures near 45 Degrees.
Thursday night is expected to be clear to partly cloudy with low temperatures near 25 Degrees.
Friday looks sunny with high temperatures between 40 and 45 Degrees.
Saturday Through Next Monday: A well developed storm system is expected to move into the northeastern United States on about Sunday. The exact track of this storm system is currently uncertain with a range of tracks anywhere from an inland one that takes it into northern New England to a coastal storm track that takes this storm near the south coast of New England. Obviously, this makes for a very uncertain weather forecast for Sunday and Sunday night.
What looks most certain is that there will be some sort of precipitation falling from the sky on Sunday and Sunday night. Should this storm system take an inland track, then another rain storm would occur. On the other, if this storm system takes a coastal track, then a wintry mix of snow, sleet and freezing rain would occur on Sunday and Sunday night.
I will be keeping a close eye on Sunday and Sunday night’s storm and will have updates for you throughout this week.
