Two Soaking Rainfalls Are Expected Across Western & Central Mass – The First Tonight & The Second Late Saturday Night Through Sunday

For The Rest Of This Afternoon Through Tonight: An area of low pressure now located over the eastern Carolinas is expected to track across Southern New England later tonight. This storm system will combine with a stationary front that’s now positioned across the region to really wring out the water across the region. This means that a soaking rainfall is expected tonight across the entire area.

Rain will overspread the area beginning near and south of the Mass Pike by about 4 pm and then reaching the Route 2 corridor by about 6 pm.

Rain, which will be heavy at times, is expected throughout the night tonight. It appears that the heaviest rain can be expected between about 10-11 pm and about 3-4 am or so.

Rainfall totals tonight are expected to average between 1 and 2 inches across the entire area.

Temperatures the rest of this afternoon will be near 50 Degrees. Low temperatures tonight will be between 40 and 45 Degrees. Winds during the rest of this afternoon will be South at 5 to 10 mph. Winds tonight will be East to Northeast at 10 to 20 mph.

Thursday: Thursday is looking like a raw and miserable day with low clouds, areas of fog and drizzle and on and off shower activity throughout the day.

Temperatures during Thursday will be between 40 and 45 Degrees. Winds will be Northeast at 15 to 25 mph. The combination of temperatures in the low 40s and the gusty northeast winds will make it feel very raw with wind chill temperatures in the 30s.

Friday: Friday still looks like it’ll be a nice day with partly sunny skies and high temperatures between 45 and 50 Degrees. Winds will be North at 10 to 20 mph.

Saturday: Saturday looks to be a dry day, although, it’ll likely feature increasing clouds throughout the day. High temperatures will be near 45 Degrees.

Another Heavy Rainfall Is Expected Late Saturday Night Through Sunday: Our next soaking rainfall looks to affect the area from later Saturday night through the day on Sunday.

Rain will once again overspread the entire area just before midnight Saturday night. The rain will then be heavy at times from after midnight Saturday night right through a large part of the day on Sunday. The rain will come to an end by late Sunday afternoon or early Sunday evening.

Rainfall amounts Saturday night through Sunday will likely average between 1 and 2 inches. This additional rainfall coming so close to tonight’s heavy rainfall is probably going to lead to the potential for street, highway and urban flooding. In addition, small stream, creek and river flooding is certainly a possibility and is something that’ll need to be watched.

Temperatures on Saturday night will be between 35 and 40 Degrees. High temperatures will be between 45 and 50 Degrees.
