Rain Tonight May End As Some Snow; A Sunny Middle Of The Week Is Then Expected

For Tonight: An area of low pressure is expected to track to the south of New England tonight. It appears that rain will overspread Western Mass between 6 pm and 8 pm and then Central Mass between 7 pm and 9 pm. While most of the area should remain as rain, it appears that the rain will change to snow in the Berkshires by about the 9-11 pm time frame. Rain also looks to change to wet snow across the northern Worcester Hills about midnight or so. Rain for most of the area then looks to continue through and after the midnight hour tonight. A brief change from rain to snow looks to occur across most areas by about 5-6 am Tuesday morning. Any snow amounts tonight into early Tuesday morning should be limited to the northern Worcester Hills and the Berkshires where around one inch of accumulation is expected. Elsewhere, no snow accumulation is expected early Tuesday morning. Low temperatures tonight will be near 35 Degrees. Winds will be Southeast at 5 to 10 mph before midnight and North at 5 to 10 mph after midnight. Tuesday: That low pressure system will begin to move to the east during Tuesday. It looks like some mixed light snow and rain can be expected during the morning with no accumulations of snow anticipated. All precipitation should come to an end by early afternoon with skies remaining cloudy during the rest of the afternoon. High temperatures will be near 45 Degrees. Winds will be North at 5 to 10 mph. Wednesday: A sunny day is expected on Wednesday with high temperatures near 50 Degrees. Winds will be Northwest at 5 to 10 mph. Wednesday Night: A rather strong cold front is expected to push through the region during the after midnight hours of Wednesday night. This front looks to bring with it a line of potentially heavy snow showers and gusty winds as it moves through. Current indications are that heavy snow showers look possible for Western Mass between midnight and 3 am and for Central Mass between 2 am and 6 am Thursday morning. Any snow accumulations from the snow showers may amount to about one inch. The winds will also be quite gusty after midnight Wednesday night into early Thursday morning with Northwest winds of 15 to 25 mph with gusts to 35 to 40 mph. Low temperatures Wednesday night will be between 25 and 30 Degrees. Thursday: An area of high pressure will briefly control the weather during Thursday. This means that lots of sunshine can be expected throughout the day. High temperatures will be between 40 and 45 Degrees.

Clouds will be on the increase during the day on Friday with showers moving in late in the day. High temperatures will be near 50 Degrees. Rain is expected throughout Friday night and Saturday. In addition, a few thunderstorms are a possibility during Saturday afternoon as some unstable air may work its way into the region. Temperatures Friday night will be steady near 50 Degrees.
