Some Light Snow Late Monday Night & Tuesday Morning Across Western & Central Mass

For This Afternoon: Ocean effect snow showers, which spread as far west as Sturbridge this morning are expected to gradually end early this afternoon. Overall, this afternoon will be sunny to partly sunny with temperatures near 25 Degrees. Tonight: Partly cloudy skies are expected tonight with low temperatures near 15 Degrees. Sunday: A weak cold front is expected to push through the area during the day on Sunday. Skies on Sunday will feature a mixture of sunshine and clouds and I think that we will see some scattered snow shower activity during the afternoon. Little or no snow accumulation is expected from the snow shower activity. High temperatures Sunday will be between 30 and 35 Degrees. Monday: Lots of sunshine is expected on Monday with high temperatures near 25 Degrees. Monday Night Through Tuesday Night: An area of low pressure is expected to move from the eastern Great Lakes through central New England during the day on Tuesday. At the same time this is occurring, a second low pressure system is forecast to track northeastward off of the Southeastern coast of the United States on Tuesday night. This second storm system could bring some impacts in the way of snow to areas well south of the Mass Pike on Tuesday night while the first system brings some light snow to the entire area on Monday night into Tuesday morning. With that said, the track of that second storm system is uncertain with some weather forecast guidance showing a track well out into the Atlantic with no additional snow Tuesday night. At this point, I’m going with periods of light snow with accumulations of perhaps around one inch across the entire area late Monday night and Tuesday morning. As for Tuesday afternoon and Tuesday night, I’m thinking that skies will be cloudy, but dry across the entire area. Any snow from that second system, I think, will stay well south of our area. Low temperatures Monday night will be near 20 Degrees. High temperatures Tuesday will be near 35 Degrees. Low temperatures Tuesday night will be between 20 and 25 Degrees. Wednesday: Another area of high pressure will build into the area on Wednesday with sunny to partly sunny skies expected and high temperatures between 25 and 30 Degrees. Thursday & Friday: That high pressure system will move to the east on Thursday. This means that skies on Thursday will be sunny and high temperatures will be between 20 and 25 Degrees. An Arctic cold front will push through the region on Friday bringing with it some snow shower activity during the afternoon. High temperatures Friday will be near 30 Degrees. Next Weekend: We are going to be watching the potential track of a storm system that’ll form over the southeastern United States early next weekend. As expected for a storm that’s still 7 to 8 days away, there is considerable uncertainty as to what sort of a track this storm may take. At this point, it could be anything from a coastal storm that brings significant snow amounts to the entire area to a storm that passes well to the southeast of the area leading to no impacts at all. With all of that said, given the way storms have tracked so far this winter, my expectations are quite low that this storm will bring us anything significant in the way of snow. Bottom line is that I will be watching this potential storm for next weekend closely no matter what it does. I will have updates for you as needed.
