For Tonight: We just cannot buy ourselves any appreciable or beneficial rainfall right now across Western and Central Mass. The latest drought monitoring map now indicates that severe drought conditions are now occurring across all of Western Mass into parts of Central Mass. Extreme drought conditions are now evident across southeastern and northeastern parts of Worcester County. With a lack of any appreciable rainfall expected anytime soon, it appears that our drought conditions will only get worse from here on out.
As for tonight, skies will generally be partly cloudy with low temperatures between 55 and 60 Degrees. Winds will be West at 7 to 15 mph. Friday: An area of high pressure will control the weather on Friday with sunny to partly sunny skies expected. High temperatures will be near 85 Degrees. Winds will be West at 5 to 10 mph. This Weekend: A dry, but very warm weekend is expected as a southwesterly wind flow sets up across the region. Saturday looks partly sunny with high temperatures between 85 and 90 Degrees.

Monday Through Wednesday: It appears that a frontal boundary will push through the region during Monday bringing the threat for some scattered showers and a few thunderstorms. High temperatures will between 80 and 85 Degrees. That frontal boundary looks to stick close to the area during Tuesday.
