Showers With Much Colder Temperatures Expected Sunday Across Western & Central Mass

For The Rest Of This Afternoon: The remnants of Nicole are now moving away and we now have a west to northwest wind flow which is pulling in some less humid air into the region. Skies the rest of this afternoon will feature a mixture of sunshine and clouds and it will be windy with gradually less humidity. Temperatures will remain in the low to mid 60s. Winds will be West at 10 to 20 mph with gusts to 30 to 40 mph. Tonight: A surface trough of low pressure, which will usher in some much colder temperatures, will approach the region tonight. This means that skies this evening will start out with a mixture of clouds and stars, but will become cloudy by midnight. Cloudy skies are then expected after midnight tonight. In addition to this, shower activity is expected to be on the increase after midnight and will be quite widespread in nature by sunrise Sunday morning. Low temperatures tonight will be near 45 Degrees. Winds will be West at 10 to 20 mph. Sunday: That trough of low pressure will cross the region during the morning into the early afternoon hours before moving to the east during the late afternoon hours. Widespread showers are expected throughout Sunday morning with the showers ending around midday. Skies during the afternoon are expected to gradually become partly sunny. Temperatures during Sunday will be steady in the mid 40s and then fall to near 40 Degrees by late afternoon. Winds will be Northwest at 10 to 20 mph. Sunday Night: Clear to partly cloudy skies are expected on Sunday night with low temperatures between 25 and 30 Degrees. Winds will be West at 10 to 20 mph. Monday: An area of high pressure will temporarily build over the area for Monday. This means that sunny skies are expected on Monday with high temperatures near 45 Degrees. Winds will be West at 10 to 20 mph with gusts to 30 mph. Tuesday: Skies will start out sunny to partly sunny during the morning with clouds expected to increase during the afternoon as a low pressure system takes shape over the Mid-Atlantic states. High temperatures will be near 45 Degrees. Tuesday Night Through Wednesday: That low pressure system is forecast to track near the south coast of New England late Tuesday night and Wednesday morning before moving into the Gulf of Maine and towards Nova Scotia Wednesday afternoon. The big question continues to be how quickly the precipitation with this storm will overspread the area. This is important because if the precipitation moves in during the overnight hours of Tuesday night, it’ll be in the form of all snow everywhere across Western & Central Mass. On the other hand, should the precipitation moves in slower and arrives during the day on Wednesday, it’ll likely be mostly in the form of rain, except more of a rain-snow mix in the Berkshires and north of Route 2. At this point, my thinking is that the precipitation will begin across the area around sunrise Wednesday morning. Because of this, I think that the precipitation during Wednesday morning will be in the form of rain south of the Mass Pike and a rain-snow mix near and north of the Mass Pike. The exception to this could be near and north of Route 2 and west of I-91 where the precipitation may be all snow during Wednesday morning. All precipitation will change to all rain across the entire area by late morning or around midday Wednesday with rain continuing through all of Wednesday afternoon. If there’s going to be any snow accumulations during Wednesday morning, it’ll could occur near and north of Route 2 and also west of I-91. Across these areas, any snow amounts will likely be very light with maximum amounts of maybe around one inch. I will be watching the data with this system closely and looking for any possible changes in the forecast. That said, there are no signs at all that this going to be a significant snow maker and more than likely, it’ll be more snow in the air than anything else during Wednesday morning. Low temperatures Tuesday night will be between 30 and 35 Degrees. High temperatures Wednesday will be near 45 Degrees. Thursday & Friday: High pressure builds into the area for Thursday and Friday. Thursday is expected to be partly sunny with high temperatures between 40 and 45 Degrees. Friday looks sunny to partly sunny with high temperatures between 40 and 45 Degrees.
