Rain Expected From Mid-Afternoon Today Until Midnight Tonight Across Western & Central Mass

For The Rest Of This Afternoon & Tonight: A frontal system now moving into the eastern Great Lakes region is expected to sweep across the region later this afternoon and this evening. Rain is expected to continue to overspread the entire area over the next couple of hours. The rain is then expected to continue through late this afternoon and through this evening before ending around midnight. Rainfall totals from mid and late this afternoon through this evening will average between one half of an inch (0.50”) and three quarters of an inch (0.75”). Temperatures this afternoon will be between 48 and 52 Degrees. Low temperatures tonight will be near 45 Degrees. Winds this afternoon will be Southwest at 10 to 20 mph. Winds tonight will be Southwest at 5 to 10 mph before midnight and West at 10 to 20 mph with gusts to 30 mph after midnight. Monday: Generally cloudy skies are expected during Monday morning. A secondary frontal system looks to push through the area during the late morning and early afternoon hours. This will lead to skies to become partly sunny during the early and mid afternoon hours with clear skies anticipated by the time sunset rolls around. Temperatures on Monday will start out around 50 Degrees during the morning and then fall to 40 to 45 Degrees during the afternoon. Winds will be West to Northwest at 10 to 20 mph with gusts to 30 mph. Monday Night & Tuesday: An area of high pressure will build into the region during Monday night and will be in control of the weather throughout Tuesday. This means that clear skies are expected on Monday night with lots of sunshine expected throughout Tuesday. Low temperatures Monday night will be between 25 and 30 Degrees. High temperatures Tuesday will be between 40 and 45 Degrees. Winds on Monday night will be Northwest at 10 to 20 mph. Winds on Tuesday will be North to Northwest at 5 to 10 mph. Finally, since the skies will be clear on Monday night – go outdoors as the sky is getting dark and look towards the south. You’ll be able to see a crescent moon located very near the planet Saturn (it’s the yellowish star that will be located just to the top-right of the moon). In fact, if you have a small telescope, you should be able to see Saturn with its rings located very near the moon in the same view. Wednesday Through Thursday: A strong cold front is expected to push through the region during Wednesday night. Clouds will be on the increase during Wednesday morning with rain expected during Wednesday afternoon and all of Wednesday night. Skies are then expected to clear out for Thursday. All indications point towards rainfall totals of between one half of an inch (0.50”) and one inch (1.00”) can be expected with the rainfall on Wednesday afternoon and Wednesday night. In addition to this, it appears that Thursday will be a windy day with west to northwest winds gusting up to 40 to 45 mph at times. High temperatures Wednesday will be between 50 and 55 Degrees. Low temperatures Wednesday night will be between 35 and 40 Degrees. Temperatures on Thursday will hold steady in the upper 30s to near 40 Degrees. Friday Through Saturday: An area of high pressure builds into the area on Friday before a new frontal system approaches the region during Saturday. This means that sunny to partly sunny skies are expected on Friday with high temperatures between 40 and 45 Degrees. A cloudy day is expected on Saturday and some showers are possible during the afternoon. High temperatures will be near 50 Degrees.
