Plenty Of Sunshine This Afternoon Through Sunday & Monday; Rain-Snow Mix Possible Thu Night & Fri

For This Afternoon: An area of high pressure will bring plenty of sunshine to Western and Central Mass this afternoon. High temperatures this afternoon will be near 50 Degrees.

Tonight: A weak area of low pressure is expected to pass well to the southeast of Nantucket tonight. This storm system looks to pass close enough to the area to spread some clouds into Central Mass with a mixture of clouds and stars expected across Western Mass this evening. Late tonight, skies will become clear across all of Western and Central Mass.

Low temperatures tonight will be between 29 and 33 Degrees.

Sunday: High pressure will build back into the region during Sunday. This means that there will be plenty of sunshine to start the day. With that said, some moisture found around 5,000 feet above the ground could lead to some clouds to build up around midday Sunday and persist into the first half of the afternoon leading to a mixture of sunshine and clouds.

High temperatures Sunday will be near 50 Degrees.

Sunday Night & Monday: High pressure will continue to control our weather during Sunday night and Monday.

Clear skies are expected on Sunday night with low temperatures between 25 and 30 Degrees.

Monday is expected to be a sunny to partly sunny day with high temperatures near 50 Degrees.

Tuesday Through Wednesday: A frontal boundary is expected to cross the region on Tuesday. So, it appears that Tuesday will be generally mostly cloudy. Some scattered shower activity is possible during the afternoon across areas along and south of the Mass Pike with dry weather expected north of the Mass Pike. High temperatures Tuesday will be between 55 and 60 Degrees.

An area of high pressure is expected to build back into the area on Tuesday night. Generally partly cloudy skies are expected on Tuesday night with low temperatures near 35 Degrees.

High pressure will give Western and Central Mass a sunny day on Wednesday with high temperatures near 50 Degrees.

Snow-Rain Mix Possible Thursday Night Through Friday: The weather looks more active for late next week as there is an increasing chance that an area of low pressure will ride along a frontal boundary that will be draped from the Mid-Atlantic States to near Nantucket. This storm system combined with some much colder air pushing southeastward from the Great Lakes may lead to a wintry mix of snow and rain across Western and Central Mass on Thursday night and Friday. In fact, some areas may change to all snow leading to some sort of accumulation to occur & this is something to keep an eye on.

For now, it looks like we will see rain to start with late Thursday afternoon and Thursday evening. This rain may mix with snow during the overnight hours of Thursday night with a rain-snow mix continuing through Friday morning. All precipitation will come to an end during Friday afternoon. In addition, a changeover to all snow is definitely a possibility across the Worcester Hills and across the Hilltowns of Western Mass late Thursday night and Friday morning.

Given that this is still almost 6 days away from happening, I don’t want to get too much more fancy with details. I do urge everyone though to keep checking back for forecast updates regarding the forecast for Thursday night and Friday.

Quite Cold Weather Is Expected For Next Weekend: A quite cold weekend looks likely across Western and Central Mass even though it should be at least partly sunny.

High temperatures next Saturday may not get out of the 30s and at this time I’m forecasting high temperature readings of 34 to 39 Degrees.

Low temperatures next Saturday night will be between 20 and 25 Degrees.

High temperatures next Sunday will be between 35 and 40 Degrees.

Overall, the forecast temperatures for next weekend are readings that you would typically find during mid-December, not early November.
