Rain Ends Around Midnight Tonight; Light Snow Possible Tue Night & Wed Morning Across Central Mass

For Tonight: Rain is expected to continue across the entire area through midnight tonight before it comes to an end shortly after midnight. It should be noted that the rain will mix with and even briefly change to wet snow at times this evening across the northern Worcester Hills. Any snow accumulations across the northern Worcester Hill will be a dusting at the very most over mainly grassy and non-pavement surfaces. Temperatures tonight will hold steady between 35 and 40 Degrees. Winds will be East to Northeast at 10 to 20 mph before midnight and Northwest at 10 to 20 mph after midnight. Monday: Generally cloudy skies are expected during Monday and it’s possible that a few rain showers could move through during the afternoon. High temperatures will be near 45 Degrees. Winds will be Northwest at 10 to 20 mph. Monday Night: Cloudy skies are expected during Monday night and there’s the possibility for an isolated snow flurry or two. Low temperatures will be between 30 and 35 Degrees. Winds will be West to Northwest at 5 to 10 mph. Tuesday: A northwesterly wind flow will remain in place across the region during Tuesday. At the same time, enough instability in the atmosphere will lead to more clouds than sunshine during Tuesday. High temperatures will be near 40 Degrees. Winds will be Northwest at 5 to 10 mph. Tuesday Night & Wednesday: An inverted trough of low pressure looks to set up off of the south coast of New England during Tuesday night and Wednesday. This trough could produce the development of some light snow, which first overspreads areas inside of I-495 and then possibly backs to the west. The big unknown right now is how far west will this light snow push into Central Mass or even Western Mass. The higher resolution weather forecast guidance seems to hint at light snow overspreading much of Central Mass from east to west well after midnight Tuesday night and continuing across Central Mass during Wednesday morning. In fact, there are hints that this light snow could push into Western Mass during the morning on Wednesday. That said, the slightly more coarse global weather forecast keeps any light snow confined to areas inside of I-495. At this point, I’m going with cloudy skies during Tuesday night and Wednesday morning across the entire area. In addition, periods of light snow are possible across Central Mass during the period from about just after midnight Tuesday night through Wednesday morning. Any snow accumulations across Central Mass should be one inch or less. Across Western Mass, I think that the light snow should stay to the east, but it’ll be cloudy Tuesday night and Wednesday morning. As we get into Wednesday afternoon, skies look to become partly sunny. Low temperatures Tuesday night will be near 25 Degrees. High temperatures Wednesday will be near 35 Degrees. Wednesday Night & Thursday: Clear to partly cloudy skies are expected on Wednesday night with low temperatures near 20 Degrees. A partly sunny day is expected on Thursday with high temperatures between 30 and 35 Degrees. Friday Through Next Monday: An area of high pressure is expected to be in place to the east of Southern New England throughout Friday and Saturday. This will set up a southwesterly wind flow across the region leading to some slightly milder temperatures across the area. Friday is expected to be sunny to partly sunny with high temperatures between 40 and 45 Degrees. Cloudy skies are expected for Saturday with high temperatures between 45 and 50 Degrees. A strong low pressure system is expected to push through New England from late next Sunday into next Monday. At this time, it appears we will be on the milder side of this storm and because of that, rain is possible from next Sunday afternoon through next Monday. Temperatures from next Sunday through next Monday will be in the 50s.
