For The Rest Of Today: An area of high pressure will control our weather throughout the rest of today. A mixture of sunshine and clouds can be expected throughout the rest of today with high temperatures between 40 and 45 Degrees. Tonight: A warm front is expected to gradually push across the region tonight. Skies will become cloudy this evening and there is likely to be some scattered rain showers after midnight – although there may be some snow shower activity in the Berkshires and the northern Worcester Hills. Temperatures tonight will remain in the middle 30s. Thursday: That warm front will continue to push across the area during Thursday morning with a cold front sweeping across the area on Thursday afternoon. Scattered rain showers are expected during the morning on Thursday with a brief break possible during the early afternoon hours. A line of rain showers is likely to accompany the cold front during the mid and late afternoon hours on Thursday. It will also be windy on Thursday with south to southwest winds gusting up to 35 to 40 mph at times. High temperatures Thursday will be between 50 and 55 Degrees. Friday: That cold front will push offshore during the day on Friday. Some early morning clouds will give way to sunshine by late morning and during the afternoon hours. It will be windy on Friday with west to northwest winds gusting up to 40 mph at times. High temperatures Friday will be near 40 Degrees. Saturday & Sunday: A weather disturbance is expected to push through the area during the day on Saturday. This means that a mixture of sunshine and clouds can be expected on Saturday with some scattered rain and snow showers. High temperatures Saturday will be between 40 and 45 Degrees. Sunshine is expected on Sunday with high temperatures near 40 Degrees. Weather Outlook For Next Week: The weather pattern still looks stormy next week as an upper level trough of low pressure strengthens over the eastern United States. It now looks like the first storm for early next week may be rather mild with the low pressure system moving across northern New England. This means that rain looks likely for late Sunday night and Monday. The slightly better chance for at least some winter weather may arrive for about Wednesday as another low pressure system pushes across New England. With that said, the weather pattern may be just mild enough to support a change to rain across most areas over Western and Central Mass. So, it seems possible that we could see a mixed bag of precipitation that starts as snow on Wednesday morning that changes to freezing rain and then rain during Wednesday afternoon. Obviously, a lot can change in the next seven days and it’s still a storm to keep an eye on as it does pose at least somewhat of a winter weather threat.
