Storm System Looks To Stay Just South Of The Area Preventing Widespread Accumulating Snow On Saturday Morning Across Western & Central Mass

Some Light Snow Is Expected Late Tonight & Saturday Morning: An area of low pressure now located over the lower Ohio Valley at the time of this writing is expected to track off of the Mid-Atlantic coast by Saturday morning and then remain well south of New England during the day on Saturday. This storm should remain far enough south to prevent much of the area from receiving enough snow to plow late tonight and Saturday morning.

One area that I’m watching closely though is areas near and especially south of the Mass Pike where this storm may come close enough to bring 1 to 2 inches or so of snow accumulation. North of the Mass Pike, this storm system should remain far enough away to prevent much snow at all to accumulate.

As it stands now, light snow will gradually overspread the area just before sunrise Saturday morning with periods of light snow expected to continue through much of the morning. The steadiest light snow looks to occur near and especially south of the Mass Pike with areas across the northern Worcester Hills and the Route 2 corridor probably not seeing any snow at all.

Snow amounts late tonight through Saturday morning will range from nothing at all across the Route 2 corridor and the northern Worcester Hills to a dusting at most across areas north of the Mass Pike, including the I-290 corridor, the Route 9 corridor and the Worcester Metro to perhaps 1 inch of snow for areas near the Mass Pike to 1 to 2 inches of snow across areas south of the Mass Pike, including the I-84, I-395 and Route 146 corridors.

Low temperatures tonight will be between 20 and 25 Degrees.

Snow Showers & A Possible Snow Squall Or Two Expected Saturday Afternoon: Even though that low pressure system moves away by Saturday afternoon ending any leftover light snow by midday, an upper level trough of low pressure is expected to track across the area during the afternoon.

This trough could tap into a little bit of unstable air to produce some scattered snow showers between 1 pm and 5 pm Saturday. If there are any snow squalls around, they should be very isolated as the atmosphere shouldn’t be that unstable. Any snow shower activity will be capable of putting down a quick coating of snow.

Snow shower activity will come to an end by early Saturday evening.

High temperatures Saturday afternoon will be between 30 and 35 Degrees.

Sunday and Monday: More clouds than sunshine can be expected on Sunday with high temperatures near 35 Degrees.

Lots of sunshine looks likely for Monday with high temperatures near 35 Degrees.

Tuesday Through Thursday: A stretch of quiet weather looks to continue through the middle part of next week as an area of high pressure builds over the area.

Tuesday looks sunny with high temperatures near 40 Degrees.

Wednesday is expected to be sunny with high temperatures between 40 and 45 Degrees.

Thursday looks partly sunny with high temperatures near 40 Degrees.
