Record Warmth Expected Through Saturday Across Western & Central Mass; Much Colder Weather Next Week

For This Afternoon: Warm temperatures are expected this afternoon across the area under a mixture of sunshine and clouds. Temperatures will be between 75 and 80 Degrees, which is some 20 degrees above average for this time of year. Winds will be Southwest at 5 to 10 mph. Tonight: Partly cloudy skies are expected along with some mild temperatures. Low temperatures will be between 55 and 60 Degrees. Winds will be Southwest at 5 to 10 mph. Saturday: Yet another unusually warm day is expected on Saturday under sunny to partly sunny skies. High temperatures will be near 80 Degrees. Winds will be West to Southwest at 8 to 16 mph. Sunday: A drastic weather pattern change will begin during Sunday as a rather strong cold front gradually pushes into the area. This front will probably take until late Monday before its completely through our area. In addition, an area of low pressure is expected to move along this front, which will enhance any rainfall across the region. Sunday looks cloudy and there looks to be an increase in shower activity during the afternoon. This means that isolated to scattered showers looks likely by early afternoon with widespread showers expected during the mid and late afternoon hours. High temperatures will be near 55 Degrees. Winds will be East to Northeast at 5 to 10 mph. Monday: That cold front will continue to gradually move through the area during Monday. Because of this, it is expected that some fairly widespread showers will continue throughout much of Monday. High temperatures will be between 50 and 55 Degrees. Tuesday Through Next Friday: The temperatures on Tuesday and Wednesday are likely to be a shock to the system, especially given the warmth of the last few days. In addition, the first hard freeze of the season looks very likely for Wednesday night. If that wasn’t enough we may have to be on the lookout for a coastal low pressure system moving through around Tuesday night and Wednesday. The track of this low pressure is going to be very important in determining whether parts of the area sees some snow or not (yes, I actually said the four letter S-word). Some of the weather forecast guidance suggests a storm track that would take the low pressure system near the Cape during the day on Wednesday. If this occurs, then a few inches of snow could occur, especially over the Berkshires and the Worcester Hills. Other weather forecast guidance points to a much further south track of the low pressure system, which would lead to a complete miss across the region. At this point, I think we may end up with the following for a forecast: Tuesday looks partly sunny with high temperatures between 45 and 50 Degrees. Bundle up your little ones for Trick-Or-Treating on Tuesday evening as temperatures will be in the 40 Degree range during the time of trick-or-treating. Turning to the overnight hours of Tuesday night, skies become cloudy and there looks to be precipitation in the form of rain and snow moving in towards dawn on Wednesday morning. Low temperatures will be near 35 Degrees. Wednesday looks unsettled with rain and snow expected. The areas that have the highest chance of seeing accumulating snow looks to be in the Worcester Hills and across the Berkshires and this is something that’ll need to be watched, for sure. High temperatures will be between 35 and 40 Degrees. Precipitation looks to end by Wednesday evening with clear to partly cloudy skies expected during the overnight hours of Wednesday night. Low temperatures will be near 30 Degrees with a hard freeze likely. Thursday and next Friday both look sunny to partly sunny. High temperatures Thursday will be between 45 and 50 Degrees. High temperatures next Friday will be near 50 Degrees.
