Widespread Showers & Thunderstorms, A Few Which May Be On The Strong To Severe Side, Are Expected Tonight Across Western & Central Mass

For This Afternoon: A very warm and humid afternoon is expected across the area along with a mixture of sunshine and clouds. It’s possible that we could see a couple of showers and thunderstorms during the mid and late afternoon hours, but I think that the main show in terms of thunderstorm activity will wait until about sunset.

Temperatures this afternoon will be between 85 and 89 Degrees. Winds will be Southwest at 10 to 20 mph.

Tonight: Widespread showers and thunderstorms are expected for a large part of tonight across the entire area as a cold front pushes across the region.

Current indications are that widespread showers and thunderstorms will overspread the entire area from southwest to northeast between about 8 pm and 10 pm this evening. Widespread showers and thunderstorms then look to continue for a large part of the night tonight before coming to an end around the 4 to 6 am time frame Thursday morning.

As far as the potential for strong to severe thunderstorms – It appears that there is a threat that a few of the thunderstorms may be on the strong to severe side primarily between about 8 pm and midnight with wind gusts of up to 50-65 mph, heavy downpours with localized flash flooding and frequent lightning. This is something that will be monitored closely and I will certainly have updates for you as needed.

Low temperatures tonight will be between 60 and 65 Degrees. Winds will be Southwest at 10 to 20 mph.

Thursday: Any morning clouds will give way to a mixture of sunshine and clouds by late morning. Partly sunny skies are then expected during the afternoon. It will be less humid on Thursday with high temperatures between 80 and 85 Degrees. Winds will be West at 10 to 20 mph.

Friday: A sunny and very pleasant day is expected on Friday with high temperatures between 75 and 80 Degrees. Winds will be Northwest at 5 to 10 mph.

This Weekend: Saturday looks to be the nicer of the two days this weekend with a partly sunny start and a cloudy end to the day. High temperatures will be between 75 and 80 Degrees.

Widespread showers are expected throughout Saturday night and Sunday. Low temperatures Saturday night will be between 65 and 70 Degrees. High temperatures Sunday will be between 75 and 80 Degrees.
