For The Rest Of Today: Rain is expected to continue across all of Western and Central Mass throughout the rest of today as an area of low pressure crosses southern New England. In addition, periods of heavy rain are likely as this is expected to be a potent, moisture packed low pressure system. East winds are expected to gust up to 25 to 35 mph at times. The combination of heavy rainfall, temperatures only in the low 50s and a gusty east wind will make it feel very raw and miserable.
Finally, there is the slight possibility for a few rumbles of thunder across areas that are south of the Mass Pike this afternoon.
Total rainfall amounts today will average between one inch (1.00”) and one and one half inches (1.50”).
Tonight Through Monday: As that low pressure system moves to our east, rain is expected to come to an end early this evening with skies remaining cloudy throughout the night tonight. Low temperatures tonight will be between 40 and 45 Degrees.
On Monday, a moist easterly wind flow is expected to set up across southern New England. This will lead to generally cloudy skies with areas of drizzle and fog throughout the day Monday. High temperatures Monday will range from near 55 Degrees across Central Mass to between 55 and 60 Degrees across Western Mass.
Monday Night Through Tuesday: A moist easterly wind flow is expected to remain over the region on Monday night and Tuesday. This means that dreary weather consisting of cloudy skies with areas of drizzle and fog will continue throughout Monday night and Tuesday. In addition, a few showers are possible during the day on Tuesday. Low temperatures Monday night will be near 40 Degrees. High temperatures Tuesday will be near 55 Degrees.
Wednesday: A southerly wind flow is expected to develop on Wednesday as an area of high pressure moves to our east. This means that skies on Wednesday will be partly sunny and high temperatures will be near 65 Degrees.
Halloween Day Through Halloween Night: There are still some questions regarding the weather for Halloween Day and Halloween Night and how this will impact trick-or-treating.
An area of low pressure is expected to track from the Ohio Valley into the eastern Great Lakes. This storm system will drag a cold front and the possibility of a wave of low pressure across southern New England late Halloween night into Friday.
Halloween Day looks cloudy and there may be some scattered shower activity during the afternoon, especially across areas south of the Mass Pike. High temperatures on Halloween Day will be between 55 and 60 Degrees.
For Halloween Night, it looks like a steady rain will overspread Western and Central Mass between about 6 pm and 9 pm Halloween evening and then continue all night Halloween night. As I already mentioned, there are still questions as to the exact time of the rain beginning. Some guidance still points to a late afternoon start of the rain, while other weather forecast guidance is showing the rain starting around 10-11 pm Halloween night. Low temperatures Halloween night will be near 50 Degrees.
Friday: A robust frontal system with a wave of low pressure will cross southern New England during the day on Friday. This means that rain is expected throughout much of the day on Friday and it may be heavy at times. It appears that the rain will come to an end during the mid and late afternoon hours of Friday. High temperatures Friday will be near 60 Degrees.
Next Weekend: It currently looks like a dry weather is expected for next weekend with partly sunny skies for both Saturday and Sunday. High temperatures Saturday will be near 55 Degrees. High temperatures next Sunday will be between 50 and 55 Degrees.
