Snow Showers & Snow Squalls Late This Afternoon & Early This Evening; Bitter Cold This Weekend

This Afternoon: A few scattered snow showers and perhaps a snow squall or two is expected by later this afternoon and early this evening across Western and Central Mass. A cold front is expected to push through the area this evening. Ahead of this front, the atmosphere is just unstable enough to produce snow shower and snow squall activity across central and eastern New York State and northern Pennsylvania. It looks like scattered snow showers and a snow squall or two will enter Western Mass by about 3-4 pm this afternoon and then reach Central Mass by about 6-7 pm. Any snow shower and snow squall activity will produce very low visibilities, wind gusts to 30 mph and a quick 1 to 2 inches of snow accumulation. This will lead to slippery road conditions and poor travel conditions for a short period of time in areas that see the snow shower/snow squall activity. Temperatures this afternoon will be in the upper 30s to low 40s. Tonight: Much colder air will move into the area after midnight tonight as the cold front pushes offshore. Any leftover snow showers will end this evening and it will be followed by clearing skies after midnight. Northwest winds are expected to gust up to 25 to 30 mph and this will put a real bite into the air. Low temperatures tonight will be between 15 and 20 Degrees. Wind chill temperatures tonight will be in the single numbers. Saturday: A sunny, but windy and bitterly cold day is expected across the area. High temperatures on Saturday will be near 25 Degrees. Northwest winds are expected to gust up to 35 mph and this will produce wind chill temperatures of between Zero and 10 above zero. Saturday Night: Clear skies, windy conditions and bitterly cold temperatures are expected on Saturday night. Low temperatures Saturday night will be near 10 Degrees. Northwest winds are expected to gust up to 30 to 40 mph and this will lead to wind chill temperatures of Zero to 10 below zero. Sunday: Sunny, windy and continued cold temperatures are expected on Sunday. High temperatures will be between 25 and 30 Degrees. Northwest winds are expected to gust up to 30 mph and this will lead to wind chill temperatures in the teens. Monday: An area of high pressure will control our weather throughout Monday. We should have a sunny to partly sunny day on Monday with high temperatures between 30 and 35 Degrees. Tuesday: An area of low pressure is expected to take shape near the Mid-Atlantic coast on Monday night and Tuesday morning. It appears that a blocking high pressure system may push this storm system on a track that keeps it to the south of Nantucket. This track should keep a majority of the accumulating snow to our south. With that said, the track of this storm could still be close enough for some light snow to occur on Tuesday afternoon and Tuesday evening. I think that any snow accumulation will be light with 1 to 3 inches possible. With that said, the track of this storm will still be watched in case this storm system tracks closer to our area.
