For The Rest Of Today: The quiet weather will continue the rest of today across Western and Central Mass.
An area of high pressure will move offshore this afternoon. Sunshine will give way to increasing clouds the rest of today. High temperatures this afternoon will be near 40 Degrees.
Tonight Through Saturday: An area of low pressure is likely to pass well to southeast of Southern New England.
Cloudy skies are expected for tonight and Saturday. In addition, there may be some scattered snow and rain shower activity during Saturday.
Low temperatures tonight will be between 25 and 30 Degrees. High temperatures Saturday will be near 40 Degrees.
Saturday Night: A piece of atmospheric energy is expected to pass through Southern New England on Saturday night. Right now, it looks like this weather feature will bring some scattered snow showers during Saturday night. With that said, we will still need to keep an eye on this feature as some of the weather forecast guidance hint at a period of light snow during Saturday night.
Low temperatures Saturday night will be between 25 and 30 Degrees.
Sunday: Scattered morning snow showers are expected with a mixture of sunshine and clouds expected during the afternoon. High temperatures Sunday will be near 40 Degrees.
Monday: Monday may end up being the nicest day of next week with partly sunny skies expected and high temperatures near 50 Degrees.
Tuesday Through Next Friday: There is a considerable amount of uncertainty with the forecast for the middle and end of next week.
A frontal boundary is expected to anchor itself either right over or very near Southern New England. The type of weather we receive will depend on which side of the front we are on. If we stay on the milder side of the front, it would mean occasional rain showers and high temperatures of at least 50 Degrees. On the other hand, if we find ourselves on the cold side of the frontal boundary, it would mean periods of snow or ice and temperatures in the 30s.
At this point, I think that we will be on the milder side of the front on Tuesday and Wednesday. This means that skies will be cloudy on Tuesday and Wednesday and there will be some rain shower activity, especially on Wednesday. High temperatures Tuesday and Wednesday will be between 45 and 50 Degrees.
I also think that we may find ourselves on the colder side of the front, especially across northern Mass on Thursday and next Friday. So, we may see occasional rain along and south of the Mass Pike on Thursday into next Friday with ice and possible snow at times north of the Mass Pike.
It is something that I am keeping an eye on and given the high amount of uncertainty, this forecast will likely change in the coming days.
