For The Rest Of Today: A weak cold front is expected to slide across the region by this afternoon. Skies the rest of today will be cloudy, however, some peeks of sunshine are possible from time to time, especially this morning. Scattered showers are expected across all of Western and Central Mass between about 3-4 pm this afternoon and about 9 pm this evening. High temperatures this afternoon will be between 50 and 55 Degrees. Tonight: Any leftover scattered showers will end by about 9 pm this evening. An area of high pressure will build into the area later tonight and this will lead to clear skies and light winds after midnight tonight. This means that temperatures will bottom out between 29 and 34 Degrees across all of Western and Central Mass. Expect a widespread hard frost late tonight and early Wednesday morning across all of Western and Central Mass, as well as a hard freeze in many areas as well. Wednesday & Wednesday Night: Even though an area of high pressure will be building into the area on Wednesday, there could be enough instability and low-level moisture to produce some puffy clouds during the afternoon. In addition, an isolated rain or even an isolated snow shower is possible during Wednesday afternoon, especially in the Worcester Hills. Most areas, however, should stay dry on Wednesday. High temperatures Wednesday will be between 45 and 50 Degrees. Clear skies and light winds on Wednesday night will lead to a clear night with widespread hard frosts and hard freezes across all of Western and Central Mass. Low temperatures Wednesday night will be between 25 and 30 Degrees. Thursday Through Friday: Thursday is expected to start out sunny, but some puffy clouds will dot the sky during the afternoon. In addition, some instability associated with a passing trough of low pressure could lead to a very isolated rain shower or snow shower during the afternoon on Thursday. A majority of the area, however, will stay dry on Thursday. High temperatures Thursday will be between 45 and 50 Degrees. That trough of low pressure will continue moving through the area on Thursday night leading to a cloudy night across the area. In addition, some isolated snow showers are possible during Thursday night. Low temperatures will be between 30 and 35 Degrees. On Friday, that trough of low pressure will exit to the east and will be replaced by a building area of high pressure by afternoon. Any leftover isolated snow showers will end early Friday morning with partly sunny skies expected during the rest of the day Friday. High temperatures Friday will be between 45 and 50 Degrees. Saturday through Monday: An area of low pressure is expected to take shape near the North Carolina coast early this weekend with that storm passing well southeast of the Cape on Sunday and Monday. It appears that this storm will remain well offshore and thus this upcoming weekend looks dry across the entire area. Saturday is expected to be sunny to partly sunny with high temperatures near 50 Degrees. Sunday also looks sunny to partly sunny with high temperatures between 50 and 55 Degrees. Monday is expected to be sunny to partly sunny with high temperatures between 50 and 55 Degrees.
