On & Off Rain With Isolated Thunderstorms Are Expected Tonight Through Saturday

For Tonight & Saturday: The next 24 hours or so looks pretty wet as a coastal low pressure system strengthens rapidly as it heads into the Gulf of Maine by late Saturday. This is expected to be quite the dynamic system with plenty of energy and forcing. Because of this, on and off rain, which will fall at a heavy rate can be expected tonight through Saturday. In addition, some isolated thunderstorms are possible during tonight and Saturday. Looking at tonight, rain, heavy at times, will continue across Western Mass into the western and northern Worcester Hills this evening. This rain, which will fall at a heavy rate at times, will spread into the rest of Central Mass after midnight tonight. In addition to this, an isolated thunderstorm or two is possible during the after midnight hours of tonight. Temperatures tonight will be between 55 and 60 Degrees. Winds will be Southeast at 10 to 20 mph. Saturday looks to be a wet day with on and off rain expected all day long. This rain will be heavy at times and there could be an isolated thunderstorm or two. Temperatures during Saturday will remain between 55 and 60 Degrees. Winds will be East at 5 to 10 mph in the morning and West at 10 to 20 mph in the afternoon. The rain should come to an end during Saturday evening with skies remaining cloudy right through the rest of the night. West to Northwest winds are also expected to increase to 15 to 25 mph with gusts to 35 mph during Saturday night. Low temperatures Saturday night will be between 45 and 50 Degrees. Total rainfall amounts from tonight through Saturday is expected to range from 1 to 2 inches across Central Mass to 2 to 3 inches of rainfall across Western Mass. Sunday: That low pressure system is expected to head into Maine during Sunday. It will be close enough though to produce more clouds than sunshine during Sunday along with some scattered afternoon showers. It also looks like it’ll be windy on Sunday with West to Northwest winds of 15 to 25 mph with gusts to 35 mph. High temperatures will be near 55 Degrees. Next Week’s Weather: A large high pressure system is expected to control the weather during the first half of next week. That high pressure system is then expected to shift to the east during late next week. Monday looks to be a partly sunny day with high temperatures near 55 Degrees. A widespread frost is likely on Monday night into Tuesday morning with the possibility of a hard freeze in some locations. Skies on Monday night will be clear to partly cloudy with low temperatures between 30 and 35 Degrees. Tuesday looks sunny to partly sunny with high temperatures near 60 Degrees. Wednesday is expected to be sunny to partly sunny with high temperatures near 65 Degrees. Thursday looks to be sunny to partly sunny with high temperatures between 65 and 70 Degrees.
