Rain Is Expected From Thursday Night Through Friday Night Across Western & Central Mass

For Tonight: Generally partly cloudy skies are expected tonight as a weak and dry cold front moves across the region. Low temperatures will be near 25 Degrees. Winds will be West at 7 to 15 mph. Tuesday & Tuesday Night: An area of high pressure is expected to build into the area during Tuesday and Tuesday. This means that skies on Tuesday will be partly sunny with high temperatures between 35 and 40 Degrees. Winds will be Northwest at 5 to 10 mph. Partly cloudy skies are expected on Tuesday night with low temperatures between 20 and 25 Degrees. Winds will be North at 5 to 10 mph. Wednesday Through Thursday: That high pressure system is expected to continue to control the weather during Wednesday. This means that skies on Wednesday will be partly sunny with high temperatures between 35 and 40 Degrees. Winds will be Northeast at 5 to 10 mph. Turning to Wednesday night & Thursday morning, it appears that a piece of energy is expected to cross Vermont, New Hampshire and Maine. While most of the widespread snow shower activity is expected to remain to our north, there could be the occurrence of some scattered snow shower activity across the entire area from about midnight Wednesday night until about mid-morning Thursday. Any snow showers could put down a dusting of snow. Another thing that we’re going to have to watch is for the very slight possibility of some patchy freezing drizzle across the Worcester Hills and near and north of Route 2 late Wednesday night and early Thursday. Any freezing drizzle could lead to some areas of slippery travel for the Thursday morning commute. Low temperatures Wednesday night will be between 25 and 30 Degrees. High temperatures by Thursday afternoon will be near 45 Degrees. Thursday Night Through Saturday: It looks like yet another rain event is going to affect the entire area beginning on Thursday night and continuing through Friday, Friday night and into Saturday. An area of low pressure is expected to track across the eastern Great Lakes region into southern Ontario and southern Quebec provinces during Thursday night and Friday. Rain is expected to overspread the region during Thursday evening with the rain expected to continue through the overnight hours of Thursday night and through all day Friday. Rain is then expected to continue through Friday night. At this point, it appears that rain totals of around one inch can be expected with this latest round of rainfall. Temperatures on Thursday night will be near 40 Degrees. High temperatures Friday will be between 50 and 55 Degrees. Low temperatures Friday night will be near 40 Degrees. As we get into later Friday night and during Saturday, it appears quite possible that a secondary low pressure system may take shape near the New Jersey coast. This secondary low pressure system may then track near the Cape and then towards Atlantic Canada. We’re going to have to really watch this as any secondary low pressure system development may try to wrap some colder air into the area leading to the chance for a precipitation change from rain to snow. The area that has the greatest chance of seeing rain change to snow looks to be the Berkshires and maybe the far northern Worcester Hills. Elsewhere across the region, the precipitation may end before it has a chance to flip from rain to snow. That said, I’ll be watching this closely and will have updates as needed. Sunday & Monday: It currently appears that a new high pressure system will build into the area for Sunday and Monday. Partly sunny skies are expected for both Sunday and Monday. High temperatures Sunday will be near 35 Degrees. High temperatures Monday will be between 35 and 40 Degrees.
