This Afternoon: A mixture of sunshine and clouds can be expected for this afternoon. In addition to this, an area of snow showers now pushing across eastern New York State is expected to push through the area late this afternoon. This means that some scattered snow shower activity can be expected across Western and Central Mass. Temperatures this afternoon will be in the middle 30s. Tonight: Skies are expected to start out partly cloudy this evening, but will become cloudy late tonight as a rather strong upper level weather disturbance approaches the area. Low temperatures tonight will be near 25 Degrees. Wednesday: A cold front combined with a strong upper level weather disturbance is expected to push through the area during Wednesday. An area of snow showers and even a little bit of light snow will overspread Western and Central Mass, especially across areas along and south of the Mass Pike by 8 to 9 am Wednesday morning. This snow shower activity is then expected to continue through midday before coming to an end. Any snow accumulation should be one inch or less, mainly found south of the Mass Pike. During Wednesday afternoon, I think that we will see a mixture of sunshine and clouds and there is the possibility for a stray leftover snow shower or two. High temperatures Wednesday will be between 30 and 35 Degrees. Thursday: A trough of low pressure is expected to push across the area during the late morning and early afternoon hours of Thursday. This means that an area of snow showers will push across the area between about 9-10 am to 1-2 pm Thursday. A quick inch or so of snow accumulation is possible with some of this snow shower activity. High temperatures Thursday will be near 30 Degrees. Friday: A mostly cloudy day is expected on Friday and there could be a stray snow shower or two around, primarily in the Worcester Hills and the Berkshires. High temperatures Friday will be near 35 Degrees. This Weekend: Saturday is expected to be partly sunny with high temperatures near 30 Degrees. Sunday is expected to be partly sunny with high temperatures between 25 and 30 Degrees. Still Watching Early Next Week For Possible Snowfall: I continue to keep close tabs on the potential for a low pressure system to push off of the Mid-Atlantic coast late Monday night into next Tuesday. Obviously, the track of this storm system is going to be critical in determining whether it snows or not across Western and Central Mass. Some of the weather forecast guidance forecasts a track close enough to our area to bring a few inches of snow to the area next Tuesday. Other just as reliable weather forecast guidance forecasts a track that keeps this storm far enough south so that only the Mid-Atlantic States (Philadelphia, Baltimore and DC) sees snow and we remain dry, but cold. Even though it’s too soon to really iron out an exact storm track, the trend in the weather forecast data is for a southern storm track keeping us dry rather than a track that would give us accumulating snow. With that said, it wouldn’t surprise me to see a close enough track to bring a 1 to 3 inch or a 2 to 4 inch snowfall to parts of the area next Tuesday.
