Heavy Rain With Rainfall Amounts Of Around 2 Inches Are Expected On Saturday Across Western & Central Mass

For Tonight: An area of high pressure will gradually build into the area during tonight.

This means that skies tonight will be clear. It will be quite cold for this time of year with low temperatures near 15 Degrees. Winds will be West at 15 to 25 mph with gusts to 35 mph with wind chill temperatures of near 10 Degrees this evening and near Zero after midnight.

Friday: That high pressure system will control the weather throughout Friday with lots of sunshine expected. High temperatures will be near 40 Degrees. Winds will be West at 10 to 20 mph.

Friday Night: An area of low pressure system is expected to form over the southeastern United States during Friday night.

Skies will become cloudy during Friday evening and it appears that precipitation in the form of some light snow and light freezing rain is expected to overspread areas north of the Mass Pike during the predawn hours of Saturday morning where up to one inch of snow is possible. Across areas near and south of the Mass Pike, it appears precipitation in the form of rain or a rain-snow mix will begin during the predawn hours of Saturday morning.

Low temperatures Friday night will be between 25 and 30 Degrees. Winds will be South at 10 to 20 mph.

Saturday: Any snow and freezing rain north of the Mass Pike will quickly change to rain around sunrise Saturday morning.

The focus will then turn to the likelihood of heavy rain and the threat for flooding throughout the day on Saturday as that low pressure system tracks near the East Coast of the United States.

So, rain is expected throughout the day on Saturday and it will be heavy in intensity during the afternoon and evening hours.

Rainfall totals on the order of around 2 inches can be expected from this storm system. This will lead to the likelihood of urban flooding and poor drainage flooding, as well as ponding of water on roads and highways.

High temperatures will be between 45 and 50 Degrees. Winds will be South at 10 to 20 mph with gusts to 30 mph.

Saturday Night: Heavy rain is expected to continue through Saturday evening before it comes to an end around midnight or so. It’s possible that the rain could end as a brief period of snow around midnight and if this happens, a slushy dusting of snow would be possible, mostly on non-pavement surfaces.

Low temperatures will be near 30 Degrees. Winds will be Northwest at 15 to 25 mph with gusts to 35-40 mph.

Sunday: A partly sunny and windy day is expected on Sunday with high temperatures near 40 Degrees.

Next Week’s Weather Outlook: Monday and Tuesday both look generally partly sunny with high temperatures both days near 45 Degrees.

Clouds will be on the increase on Wednesday with showers likely during the afternoon as a frontal system approaches the region. High temperatures will be near 45 Degrees.

Showers will then continue through Wednesday night and next Thursday as that frontal system pushes through the area. High temperatures next Thursday will be near 50 Degrees.
