For The Rest Of Today: An intense low pressure system will continue to move away from New England the rest of today. Meanwhile, an area of high pressure will begin to build into our area. Residual moisture from that offshore low pressure system will lead to sunshine mixed with clouds at times the rest of today. High temperatures this afternoon will be near 55 Degrees. Tonight Through Friday: An area of high pressure will very briefly control our weather tonight and Friday while an area of low pressure moves from the Ohio Valley into the Mid-Atlantic states. Tonight will feature generally partly cloudy skies with low temperatures near 35 Degrees. Friday will start out partly sunny, however, clouds will be on the increase during the afternoon. High temperatures Friday will be between 50 and 55 Degrees. Rain Is Expected For Late Friday Night Through Saturday: An area of low pressure near the eastern Great Lakes is expected to redevelop in the Gulf of Maine by Saturday morning and then head for Atlantic Canada. This weather system will bring rain to all of Western and Central Mass starting late Friday night and continuing through the day on Saturday. Rain will overspread the entire area between about midnight and 3 am Friday night and then continue right through the entire day on Saturday. The rain is expected to be heavy at times during the day on Saturday, especially from about midday Saturday through the afternoon hours on Saturday. The rain will gradually taper off to scattered showers during Saturday evening with the scattered showers persisting throughout the rest of the night Saturday night. Total rainfall amounts for late Friday night and Saturday are expected to be in the neighborhood of 1 to 2 inches. Localized urban and poor drainage flooding will be a concern, especially where many storm drains are now clogged by fallen leaves. Low temperatures Friday night will be near 45 Degrees. High temperatures Saturday will be between 55 and 60 Degrees. Low temperatures Saturday night will be between 45 and 50 Degrees. Sunday (Halloween) Forecast: That low pressure will continue moving across Atlantic Canada during Sunday, however, some leftover moisture will lead to a mixture of sunshine and clouds throughout the day Sunday. In addition, a couple of pop up showers are possible from time to time on Sunday. High temperatures Sunday will be between 60 and 65 Degrees. For Sunday night, skies are expected to be partly cloudy with low temperatures near 45 Degrees. Trick-Or-Treat Weather Forecast Late Sunday Afternoon & Sunday Evening: Partly cloudy skies. Temperatures during the late afternoon will be between 57 and 61 Degrees and temperatures during Sunday evening will be between 52 and 56 Degrees. Monday Through Tuesday: An area of high pressure will control the weather for early next week. This means that Monday will be sunny with high temperatures near 60 Degrees, Monday night looks clear with low temperatures near 35 Degrees and Tuesday is expected to be sunny to partly sunny with high temperatures between 55 and 60 Degrees. Looking Beyond This – The weather pattern looks to turn a little colder and stormier for the middle and end of next week and beyond. There are potentially two storm systems to really keep an eye on. The first low pressure system looks to push across central and northern New England on Wednesday. This storm system could bring a round of rain to Western and Central Mass on Tuesday night and Wednesday. The second storm system for late next week looks a little more “interesting”. That first low pressure system could pull in some cold air into New England that’ll lie in wait for the second storm system, which is expected to move across central or southern New England on Thursday night into Friday. At this point, I think rain looks to be the most likely precipitation type across Western and Central Mass for Thursday night and Friday. Any snow looks to be confined to the Green Mountains of Vermont, the White Mountains of New Hampshire and western and northern Maine. With that said, I do have concerns that enough cold air may trickle down to cause at least some snow to fall as far south as the Berkshires and the northern Worcester Hills late Thursday night and Friday morning.
