For The Rest Of Today: An area of high pressure will push eastward throughout the rest of today. A southerly wind flow on the backside of this high pressure system will cause skies to be cloudy throughout the rest of today.
In addition, some very light showers of mixed rain and snow are possible in some parts of Western and Central Mass late this morning into this afternoon.
High temperatures this afternoon will be between 34 and 38 Degrees. Tonight: A south to southwesterly wind flow will continue this evening before it becomes more westerly after midnight tonight. This means that skies will start out cloudy this evening, but will become partly cloudy after midnight.
Low temperatures tonight will range from 20 to 25 Degrees across Western Mass where skies will clear out the soonest to 25 to 30 Degrees across Central Mass.
Friday: Friday is expected to be a very nice day with sunny skies and high temperatures of between 45 and 50 Degrees.
Friday Night Through Saturday: An Arctic cold front will push southward across all of Western and Central Mass on Friday night. This front will have very little moisture to work with, so it’s passage will be marked by a wind shift and a drop in temperatures. Low temperatures Friday night will be between 20 and 25 Degrees. Winds on Friday night will shift into the north and become gusty late Friday night (wind gusts to 30-40 mph are expected).
Saturday will be a sunny, but cold and windy day. High temperatures Saturday will be between 34 and 38 Degrees. Northwest winds are expected to gust up to 25 to 35 mph with wind chill temperatures in the teens.
Sunday: High pressure will remain over our area on Sunday giving us a partly sunny day. High temperatures Sunday will be between 35 and 40 Degrees.
Sunday Night & Monday: An ocean storm is expected to track to the east of Nantucket on Monday. There is quite a bit of uncertainty as to how far west the precipitation with this storm will spread into southern New England.
I think that at least the precipitation will reach as far west as the I-395 and I-190 corridor in Central Mass late Sunday night and Monday morning. One thing that we will need to watch for is the possibility for areas of freezing rain across parts of Central Mass.
Across Western Mass, it will be cloudy on Sunday night and Monday, however, the chances for precipitation are very low right now.
Low temperatures Sunday night will be between 30 and 35 Degrees. High temperatures Monday will be near 40 Degrees.
Tuesday Through Wednesday: A second coastal storm has the potential of tracking close to southern New England, however, much like the first storm there is quite a bit of uncertainty with the exact storm track.
For now, some rain is possible on Wednesday across much of Western and Central Mass. Depending on the strength and track of this storm, we may have to watch for the possibility of snow across the Berkshires as colder air may wrap into the storm.
High temperatures on Tuesday and Wednesday will be between 40 and 45 Degrees. Thank you for reading our latest forecast for Western and Central Mass.
