Some Strong-Severe Thunderstorms Possible Saturday Afternoon/Evening Across Western & Central Mass

It looks like we'll see a couple of more nice days before strong to severe thunderstorms become a threat on Saturday afternoon and evening.

Clear skies with comfortable temperatures are expected Tonight with low temperatures between 45 and 50 Degrees.

A sunny day is expected on Thursday with high temperatures between 75 and 80 Degrees.

Sunny skies are also expected on Friday, however, the humidity is likely to be on the increase. High temperatures on Friday will be between 80 and 85 Degrees.

Turning to Saturday, it appears that a rather strong cold front will push across the Northeastern United States during Saturday afternoon and evening. The dynamics and forcing with this front will be pressing into some very warm, humid and unstable air.

Saturday is expected to start out with clouds and some shower and possible thunderstorm activity during the morning. Once these showers depart, we may be left with some partly sunny skies during Saturday afternoon along with very warm and humid conditions.

Strong to severe thunderstorms are a possibility during the late afternoon and evening hours on Saturday. How severe the thunderstorms get will depend on how much sunshine and how warm and humid we get during the afternoon on Saturday.

If we remain cloudy with some modest heating (near 80 Degrees), then a couple of stronger thunderstorms would be possible late in the day.

On the other hand, if we break out in quite a bit of sunshine with temps in the upper 80s with lots of humidity, then we could have a real problem with severe weather.

For now, I think that a few strong to severe thunderstorms are a possibility with strong winds the main threat. It's something that definitely needs to be watched.

The weekend will end really nice with lots of sunshine expected on Sunday with lower humidity and high temperatures between 80 and 85 Degrees.
