An Arctic cold front now progressing southward across northern parts of New England will move across Southern New England this afternoon bringing with it snow shower and snow squall activity, along with gusty winds and sharply colder temperatures.
I expect that snow showers and snow squalls should enter the upper Pioneer Valley and northern Worcester County by about 2 pm this afternoon and then gradually progress southward across the rest of Western and Central Mass by 3 to 4 pm this afternoon. Snow showers and possible snow squalls are then expected to continue until about 6 pm today when they are expected to push out of our area.
Any snow shower and snow squall activity will be accompanied by briefly heavy snow, low visibility in heavy snow and very gusty winds. Be very careful if you run into any snow shower or snow squall activity as conditions will be bad in some areas for a short period of time. In addition, temperatures are expected to fall through the 30s this afternoon and it will be quite windy with northwest winds gusting up to 50 mph at times. Cold and quite windy conditions are expected Tonight under partly cloudy skies. Low temperatures tonight will be between 10 and 15 Degrees. Northwest winds will gust up to 40 to 50 mph at times with wind chill temperatures of Zero to 10 below zero expected. Monday will be a sunny, but cold and windy day. High temperatures Monday will be between 25 and 30 Degrees. Northwest winds are expected to gust up to 40 mph. Wind chill temperatures on Monday will be between 5 and 15 Degrees.
