Scattered Thunderstorms Expected Through This Evening Across Western & Central Mass; More Widespread Showers & Thunderstorms Expected Memorial Day Into Monday Night

For The Rest Of This Afternoon Through Tonight: Scattered thunderstorms are anticipated to develop across the region over the next couple of hours or so and then continue into this evening. Current indications seem to point towards most of the scattered thunderstorms occurring north of the Mass Pike. Heavy downpours look to be the main threat with any thunderstorms with localized 1 to 2 inch rainfall amounts possible.

Thunderstorms will come to an end by about 10-11 pm this evening with some scattered showers anticipated during the after midnight hours of tonight.

Temperatures the rest of this afternoon will be between 75 and 80 Degrees. Low temperatures tonight will be near 60 Degrees. Winds the rest of this afternoon and tonight will be Southeast at 5 to 10 mph.

Memorial Day: An area of low pressure over the Great Lakes region will pull a warm front across our area during Monday.

Lots of clouds with some scattered showers are expected during the morning. During the afternoon, I expect that there will be widespread showers and isolated thunderstorms that will significantly impact outdoor plans.

High temperatures will be near 70 Degrees. Winds will be Southeast at 10 to 20 mph.

Monday Night: A potent frontal system is expected to move through the region during Monday night bringing with it quite a bit in the way of wet weather.

Widespread showers and scattered thunderstorms with a heavy rainfall potential is expected throughout the first half of Monday night. By the after midnight hours of Monday night, the widespread showers and scattered thunderstorms will end from west to east between about 1 and 3 am.

One thing that we will need to monitor during Monday evening is the possibility for a few strong to severe thunderstorms. While there isn’t expected to be much unstable air around, the amount of wind shear present will be pretty strong. This, I think, may mean a couple of thunderstorms could be on the strong to severe side with up to 50 mph wind gusts and maybe even a very isolated tornado risk. Time frame for the greatest risk for a couple of strong to severe thunderstorms looks to be between 8 pm and midnight.

Low temperatures will be near 60 Degrees. Winds will be South at 8 to 16 mph.

Tuesday: Skies will start out cloudy during Tuesday morning with skies gradually becoming partly sunny during Tuesday afternoon. High temperatures will be between 75 and 80 Degrees. Winds will be West at 10 to 15 mph.

Wednesday Through Friday: An upper level low pressure system will move over the region during Wednesday bringing with it a mixture of sunshine and clouds along with scattered showers and thunderstorms during the afternoon. High temperatures Wednesday will be between 70 and 75 Degrees.

Thursday and Friday both look sunny to partly sunny. High temperatures Thursday will be between 65 and 70 Degrees. High temperatures Friday will be near 65 Degrees.
