For This Afternoon: The snow that has been falling this morning across the region is expected to change to scattered rain showers across the entire area during this afternoon. Temperatures this afternoon will rise to between 35 and 40 Degrees. Winds will be Southeast at 10 to 20 mph. Tonight & Friday: An area of low pressure is expected to track to our west tonight and Friday morning bringing with it a round of rainfall to the entire area. Steady rain is expected to overspread the entire area by 9-10 pm this evening and then continue through the rest of the night tonight. The rain is expected to come down at a moderate to heavy rate at times between 11 pm tonight and sunrise Friday morning. Temperatures are expected to rise from near 40 Degrees this evening to between 50 and 55 Degrees late tonight. Winds will be Southeast at 15 to 25 mph with gusts to 35 mph. Rain is expected to continue for a while on Friday morning before it comes to an end by late morning. Skies remain cloudy during Friday afternoon and there could be some scattered rain showers during the early and mid-afternoon hours as a cold front sweeps across the area. Temperatures on Friday will reach near 55 Degrees by late morning and early afternoon and then fall through the 40s by late afternoon. Winds will be Southwest at 10 to 20 mph with gusts to 30 to 35 mph. Total rainfall amounts tonight and Friday morning will average between one half of an inch (0.50”) and one inch (1”). Saturday: A generally partly sunny day is expected on Saturday with high temperatures near 35 Degrees. Winds will be Northwest at 10 to 20 mph. Sunday & Monday: An area of low pressure is expected to track to the northeast and move to the east of the Cape during Sunday into Monday. The question continues to be how close will this low pressure system move in relation to our area. At this point, most of the guidance shows a track far enough offshore to keep any snow confined to the Cape and perhaps far eastern parts of Mass. Based on the trends in the guidance, I think that a majority of Western and Central Mass should stay snow-free during Sunday and Monday, but it could be really close for areas of Central Mass that are east of Route 146. Sunday and Monday look sunny to partly sunny across Western Mass and a mixture of sunshine and clouds across Central Mass. There could be some snow shower activity across parts of Central Mass that are east of Route 146 during the day on Sunday. High temperatures on Sunday and Monday will be between 35 and 40 Degrees.
