First Off – Yesterday I had the opportunity to attend the Hurricane Awareness Tour in North Kingstown, Rhode Island. I have studied and forecasted tropical storms and hurricanes for the past 25 years with my business, Crown Weather Services.

Now for the latest weather forecast for Western & Central Mass:
For The Rest Of Today: Partly sunny skies are expected for the rest of this morning into early this afternoon. By mid and late afternoon, skies are expected to become cloudy and it is likely that a line of showers and a possible thunderstorm or two will move from northwest to southeast across Western and Central Mass late this afternoon into early this evening.
High temperatures this afternoon will be between 67 and 71 Degrees.
Tonight: That line of showers and possible thunderstorms will move to our southeast by midnight tonight with skies expected to become clear to partly cloudy after midnight tonight. Low temperatures tonight will be near 45 Degrees.
Wednesday: An area of high pressure will build over New England on Wednesday. Skies on Wednesday will be sunny to partly sunny with high temperatures near 65 Degrees.
Thursday: That high pressure system will slowly move to the east during Thursday and I expect most of the day to be cloudy. High temperatures Thursday will be between 55 and 60 Degrees.
Friday: A frontal system will push across southern New England during Friday. This means that widespread showers are expected on Friday. A couple of thunderstorms are possible during the late afternoon hours of Friday. High temperatures Friday will be near 60 Degrees.
