For The Rest Of Today: Dry weather is expected for the rest of today as a high pressure system controls our weather. High temperatures this afternoon will be around 45 Degrees.
Tonight: Another chilly, but clear night is expected tonight with low temperatures between 15 and 20 Degrees.
Wednesday: Plenty of sunshine is expected on Wednesday with light winds and high temperatures near 50 Degrees are expected.
Thursday: Yet another sunny day is expected on Thursday with high temperatures between 52 and 57 Degrees.
Friday: A cold front is expected to approach Western and Central Mass on Friday. Skies on Friday are expected to be generally cloudy and there may be a few showers around during Friday afternoon. High temperatures Friday will be between 58 and 63 Degrees.
Saturday: That cold front will still be positioned to our west on Saturday. So, Saturday may end up being a dry, very mild and cloudy day. High temperatures Saturday will be between 62 and 67 Degrees.
Sunday Through Monday: That cold front is expected to move across southern New England during Sunday afternoon and Sunday night.
Widespread rain showers are expected during Sunday afternoon. There is the possibility for rain showers to change to snow showers during Sunday evening and persist through the late night hours of Sunday night. The snow shower activity on Sunday night is something that will have to be monitored as some of the weather forecast guidance are suggesting a couple of inches of snow may accumulate.
A weather setup like this consisting of a frontal passage normally doesn’t yield a lot of snow because the moisture flow is shut off too quickly before too much cold air rushes in. One thing that we are going to have to watch out for is whether an area of low pressure may be able to form along the front. If this happens, it could allow the precipitation to last longer leading to several hours of steady snow on Sunday night, especially across Central Mass.
For now though, I think that what we may see is widespread rain showers Sunday afternoon that changes to some snow shower activity for a few hours Sunday night with at most 1 to 2 inches of snow accumulation. This will be followed by increasing sunshine on Monday with high temperatures in the low to mid 40s.
