For The Rest Of Today: A frontal boundary will be positioned near the south coast of New England throughout the rest of today. At the same time this is happening, an area of low pressure will move along the front this afternoon. This all means that periods of drizzle and light rain with areas of fog will continue the rest of this morning. A steady rain is expected throughout this afternoon. High temperatures today will be near 40 Degrees. Tonight: That low pressure system will move away tonight with drier air moving in. Any leftover rain will come to an end early this evening with cloudy skies expected throughout the rest of this evening. Clearing skies are then expected after midnight tonight. Low temperatures tonight will be between 25 and 30 Degrees. Wednesday: An area of high pressure will build across the region on Wednesday. Partly sunny skies are expected throughout Wednesday with high temperatures near 40 Degrees. Wednesday Night & Thursday:Another round of snow to ice and then to rain is expected from about midnight Wednesday night through part of the day on Thursday. An area of low pressure is expected to move northeastward from the Mid-Atlantic states on Wednesday night to across southern New England on Thursday morning. Snow will initially overspread Western and Central Mass by about midnight Wednesday night. It is then expected to snow for a few hours late Wednesday night before milder air pushes northward and changes the snow to a sleet and freezing rain mix around dawn Thursday morning. A changeover to all rain is then expected just after sunrise Thursday morning across the Connecticut River Valley and the Blackstone Valley. Meanwhile, across the Hilltowns of Western Mass, the Berkshires and the Worcester Hills, freezing rain is expected to continue for a while Thursday morning before it changes to all rain late Thursday morning. The rain will come to an end around midday Thursday with cloudy skies and scattered rain showers expected during Thursday afternoon. Snowfall amounts Wednesday night will range from around one inch across the Connecticut River Valley and the Blackstone Valley to around 2 inches of snow accumulation across the Hilltowns of Western Mass, the Berkshires and the Worcester Hills. Low temperatures Wednesday night will be near 30 Degrees. High temperatures Thursday will be between 40 and 45 Degrees. Friday Through Sunday: Another high pressure system will build into the area for Friday and Saturday bringing some very cold temperatures. Friday is expected to be sunny to partly sunny with high temperatures near 25 Degrees. Friday night will be clear and very cold with low temperatures between 4 above zero and 4 below zero. Saturday is expected to be partly sunny and cold with high temperatures near 25 Degrees. That high pressure system will move offshore by Sunday and a milder southwesterly wind flow will kick in. This means that skies on Sunday will be partly sunny and high temperatures will be near 40 Degrees. Thank you for reading my latest forecast for Western and Central Mass.
