Oh Gee Just What We Want, More Rain Which Is Expected On Monday Across Western & Central Mass

For Tonight & Monday: An area of low pressure is expected to develop near the coast of Virginia by Monday morning and then push northeastward reaching the area around the Cape by Monday evening. This storm system is expected to bring a total washout to the entire area for Monday. Skies will become cloudy this evening with some scattered showers expected after midnight tonight. A steady rain is anticipated to overspread the entire area by sunrise Monday morning. Low temperatures tonight will be between 55 and 60 Degrees. Winds will be Southwest at 5 to 10 mph. Rain is expected throughout the day on Monday and the rain will probably be moderate to heavy at times, especially during the afternoon. In addition, an isolated thunderstorm or two is possible during the afternoon. Unfortunately, copious amounts of rainfall are expected across the region during the day on Monday. Overall, it appears that rain totals of between one half of an inch (0.50”) and one and one half inches (1.50”) seems likely across the area. Given how utterly water logged the region is right now, even an inch of rainfall right now will lead to threat for flash flooding of streets, highways, underpasses and areas of poor drainage. This is something that’s going to need to be watched closely. High temperatures Monday will be near 65 Degrees. Winds will be Southeast at 5 to 10 mph. Tuesday Through Friday: The weather pattern looks to become dry and pleasant for the middle and later parts of this coming week as a high pressure system moves over the area. Tuesday and Wednesday both look sunny with high temperatures between 70 and 75 Degrees. Thursday and Friday both look sunny to partly sunny with high temperatures between 70 and 75 Degrees. Looking Ahead To Next Weekend: I do have some concerns in regards to the potential for even more heavy rain at some point next weekend. The reason for this concern lies with the possibility for some sort of tropical low pressure system that may form near the Southeast Coast of the United States next weekend. This is a weather system that will need to be watched closely as it could move northward along the East Coast of the United States. If this happens, it could bring an influx of heavy rain into our area at some point next weekend. This is something that we definitely DO NOT need as any additional heavy rainfall into our area will only exacerbate the flood issues. It goes without saying that I will be monitoring things extremely closely and will have updates for you in the coming days.
