For The Rest Of Today: Generally cloudy skies are expected for the rest of the day today, although there could be some breaks in the clouds with peeks of sunshine for areas south of the Mass Pike.
High temperatures this afternoon will be between 40 and 45 Degrees.
Tonight: An area of low pressure is expected to form well offshore of the New England coast later tonight.
Skies tonight will be cloudy across Western & Central Mass. While most areas will stay dry, some drizzle is possible late tonight across areas south of the Mass Pike. In addition, given that temperatures will be near freezing, some very patchy freezing drizzle is possible along and south of a line from Springfield to Auburn. At this point, it’s a very low chance event, but it is something to keep an eye on.
Low temperatures tonight will be in the low 30s.
Wednesday: That low pressure system will head for the eastern part of Atlantic Canada on Wednesday.
Skies on Wednesday will be cloudy across Western and Central Mass. A relatively moist northeasterly wind flow will produce rain and snow showers across the region from about late morning through Wednesday afternoon. Given that temperatures will be above freezing during this time period, no snow accumulation is expected.
High temperatures Wednesday afternoon will be between 38 and 42 Degrees.
Wednesday Night: Any leftover rain and snow shower activity will end during Wednesday evening with gradual clearing expected after midnight Wednesday night. Low temperatures Wednesday night will be between 25 and 30 Degrees.
Thursday: Thursday is expected to be a sunny to partly sunny day with high temperatures between 45 and 50 Degrees.
Friday: A cold front is expected to push across southern New England during Friday afternoon bringing with it some scattered rain shower activity.
Friday still looks to be the warmest day of this week with high temperatures near 55 Degrees.
Once that cold front moves through, temperatures are likely to fall into the mid to upper 20s during Friday night. In addition, northwest winds gusting up to 35 mph will lead to Wind Chill temperatures in the teens during Friday night.
This Weekend: Saturday is expected to feature partly sunny skies with high temperatures between 40 and 45 Degrees.
As we get into Saturday night and Sunday morning, an area of low pressure is expected to track near or to the southeast of Nantucket. This storm system may move close enough to our area to produce some rain across the valleys of Western and Central Mass and possibly some snow across the Hilltowns of Western Mass and across the Worcester Hills late Saturday night into Sunday morning. At this point, it doesn’t look like a big storm at all and more like a glancing blow at most. With that said, given that this possible storm is still almost 5 days away from happening, it needs to be watched closely in case it tracks closer to our area.
