Moderate To Heavy Amounts Of Snow Is Expected From Saturday Night Through All Day Sunday Across Western & Central Mass

For The Rest Of This Afternoon: A big high pressure system will continue to control the weather this afternoon with plenty of sunshine expected. Temperatures will be around 30 Degrees. Winds will be Northwest at 10 to 20 mph.

Tonight: High pressure brings the area clear skies with low temperatures between 15 and 20 Degrees tonight. Winds will be West at 5 to 10 mph.

Saturday: Morning sunshine will give way to increasing clouds during the afternoon. It’s looking more likely that snow will overspread the area earlier than previously expected. Current indications seem to point towards the snow beginning first across the northern Worcester Hills between 4 and 6 pm Saturday due to some ocean effect snow and then across the rest of the region by about 6-7 pm Saturday as the main area of snow from the coastal storm moves in.

High temperatures will be near 35 Degrees. Winds will be East to Northeast at 5 to 10 mph.

Moderate To Heavy Amounts Of Snow Is Expected From Saturday Night Through All Day Sunday: There aren’t a whole lot of changes to the forecast in terms of the expectation of a moderate to heavy snowfall across the entire area throughout Saturday night and Sunday.

An area of low pressure is now forming over the northwestern Gulf of Mexico and is expected to push into the southeastern United States late tonight. This low pressure system is then expected to move up the East Coast of the United States during the day on Saturday. This storm system is then expected to strengthen as it tracks near the south coast of New England from later Saturday night into the day on Sunday.

As I already mentioned, it looks like snow will initially develop over the northern Worcester Hills between 4 and 6 pm Saturday and then begin across the rest of Western and Central Mass by about 6 to 7 pm Saturday evening.

It is then expected to snow throughout all of Saturday night and the snow will be moderate to heavy in intensity at times during Saturday night with snow rates of up to 1 inch per hour likely at times.

During Sunday, the snow looks to continue throughout the day before it comes to an end during Sunday evening. It should be noted that the snow will fall at a moderate intensity at times across Central Mass during the morning into the early afternoon hours.

Our latest forecast for snow amounts can be found with the map attached to this post.

In addition to the snow, I still think that east to northeast winds will gust up to 35 mph at times during late Saturday night and much of Sunday leading to some blowing snow.

Also, I still think that the snow consistency will be wet, sticky and heavy and thus, it’ll be tough to plow and shovel. The exception may be across the northern Worcester Hills where the snow may be a little lighter and fluffier in nature.

Temperatures on Saturday night will be between 25 and 30 Degrees. Temperatures during Sunday will be between 30 and 35 Degrees.

I continue to keep very close tabs on this storm and will have more updates as needed.
