Quiet Stretch Of Weather Across Western & Central Mass Is Expected To Last Well Into Next Week

This Afternoon: A partly sunny afternoon is expected across the entire area with high temperatures between 31 and 36 Degrees. A north wind will continue to gust up to 25 to 30 mph at times and this will put a real chill into the air throughout this afternoon. Tonight: Partly cloudy skies are expected tonight with low temperatures between 20 and 25 Degrees. Sunday: An area of high pressure will provide a sunny day across Western and Central Mass on Sunday, however, there may be a few high clouds around from time to time. High temperatures on Sunday will be between 35 and 40 Degrees. Next Week’s Weather: Quiet weather is expected to continue through at least Wednesday and probably even Thursday of next week as the overall storm track should keep any storms to our south. Generally sunny skies are expected on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday with high temperatures all 4 days between 35 and 40 Degrees. I do still think that we will need to watch the track of any storms between Friday and next Monday (between January 15 and January 18) as it looks pretty likely that we will see an upper level trough of low pressure swing into the Eastern United States. This could lead to a coastal storm impacting our area with accumulating snow. The guidance is currently in a high level of flux right now due to the fact that the overall weather pattern will be undergoing a large scale change towards colder and stormier weather for later this month. When this occurs, you will see huge changes and huge differences in the weather model guidance. This means two things – One is that there is a high amount of uncertainty in the weather forecast for late next week and next weekend. Two is that the weather app on your phone or tablet is going to be useless in showing the weather forecast for next weekend as it will likely change A LOT in the coming days. The reason why is that weather forecast on your app is based off of ONE weather model and has ZERO human input. This means that when that model is wrong, your app will be wrong. So, user beware. With all of that said, I think that there are two time periods we will need to watch for accumulating snow across our area. The first is on Friday as an Arctic cold front may push across the region causing the development of a low pressure system near the Cape. This may lead to some snow across the area on Friday. The second time period to really watch is next Monday as it’s possible that another low pressure system could track across the area bringing snow to the area.
