On & Off Rain Continues The Rest Of This Afternoon; Hot & Humid Weather Expected This Weekend

For The Rest Of This Afternoon: An upper level low pressure system spinning to our east will continue to produce on and off rain across the region and in particular across Western Mass the rest of this afternoon. Temperatures will be in the upper 50s to low 60s across Western Mass and mostly in the low 60s across Central Mass. Winds the rest of this afternoon will be southeast at 5 to 10 mph. Tonight: The on and off rain is expected to come to an end this evening with skies staying cloudy during the rest of the night tonight. Low temperatures tonight will be near 55 Degrees. Winds tonight will be southeast at 5 to 10 mph. Thursday: That upper level low pressure system is expected to begin moving away during Thursday. A mixture of sunshine and clouds are expected on Thursday with high temperatures near 75 Degrees. Winds on Thursday will be south to southeast at 8 to 16 mph. Friday: An area of high pressure is expected to gradually build into the area during Friday. This means that partly sunny skies are expected on Friday with high temperatures between 75 and 80 Degrees. Winds on Friday will be north at 5 to 10 mph. This Weekend: That high pressure system will control the weather throughout this weekend. Saturday is expected to be partly sunny with increasing humidity levels. High temperatures Saturday will be between 85 and 90 Degrees. Sunday is expected to be partly sunny and humid with high temperatures between 85 and 90 Degrees. Monday: A cold front is forecast to push through the area at some point on Monday afternoon or Monday evening. This is a front that I think will need to be watched as it could bring a threat for strong to severe thunderstorms Monday afternoon into Monday evening. The reason why I think this is because the weather pattern for early next week matches patterns from previous severe weather events across Southern New England. This means that I think there’s the very real possibility for at least some strong to possibly severe thunderstorms across Western and Central Mass Monday afternoon into Monday evening. One factor that could help to stop severe weather is a quick intrusion of dry air from the west, which could help to cap the thunderstorm development with the front. Either way, this will be something that I’m going to be watching very closely and will have updates as needed. High temperatures Monday will be between 75 and 80 Degrees.
