For This Afternoon: An area of high pressure will give the area a sunny rest of the afternoon. Temperatures this afternoon will be between 45 and 50 Degrees. A west to southwest wind will gust up to 25 mph at times. Tonight & Tuesday: Clear skies are expected for tonight and a sunny day is expected on Tuesday. Low temperatures tonight will be between 30 and 35 Degrees. High temperatures Tuesday will be near 45 Degrees. Wednesday Through Friday: That high pressure system will move to the east on Wednesday leading to the winds to shift into a southerly direction. Morning sunshine will give way to increasing clouds during the afternoon on Wednesday. High temperatures Wednesday will be near 45 Degrees. A warm front will lift across the region during Wednesday night. This means that skies on Wednesday night will be cloudy and there will be a few rain showers around. Low temperatures Wednesday night will be near 40 Degrees. Thursday is expected to be a very mild day as we will be in a southwesterly wind flow. Skies on Thursday will be cloudy with high temperatures between 55 and 60 Degrees. A cold front is expected to push through the area late Thursday night and Friday morning. This front will bring with it some scattered rain shower activity late Thursday night and Friday morning. An area of high pressure will build into the area by Friday afternoon with increasing sunshine expected. Low temperatures Thursday night will be between 40 and 45 Degrees. Temperatures on Friday morning will start out between 45 and 50 Degrees, but will fall into low 40s during the afternoon. Saturday: An area of low pressure is expected to track across some part of central or southern New England during the day on Saturday. With some colder air in place thanks to Friday morning’s cold frontal passage, there’s the possibility for some accumulating snow across parts of Western and Central Mass and a snow to ice to rain scenario across other parts of Western and Central Mass. It’s still way too early to get into any more specifics than it’s a storm to certainly keep an eye on. With that said, I’m still not convinced that this is going to be cold enough to support all snow across the entire area. My thinking is for perhaps all snow with perhaps just enough to plow near and north of Route 9 and a messy, sloppy mixture of snow, sleet and rain south of Route 9. I’ll be watching this storm closely and will have updates as needed. Sunday: An area of high pressure is expected to build into the area for Sunday bringing with it partly sunny skies. High temperatures Sunday will be between 35 and 40 Degrees.
