For The Rest Of Today: An area of high pressure will control our weather throughout the rest of today. This means that skies will be partly sunny with afternoon high temperatures of 85 to 89 Degrees. In addition, a south to southwesterly wind will pull in some increasingly more humid air as the day progresses.
Tonight: A warm front will push across southern New England during tonight. All-in-all, this is expected to be a “dry” front with no rainfall expected. The exception to this may be over the Berkshires where a few showers are possible this evening. It will be a humid night with low temperatures tonight between 65 and 70 Degrees.
Wednesday: A cold front is expected to slowly push southward from Quebec province through New England during Wednesday. At the same time this is happening, the moisture from the remnants of Barry will begin to move through our area. This all means that we will likely see scattered showers and maybe a rumble of thunder from late morning through the early afternoon hours. This will be followed by widespread showers and thunderstorms across all of Western and Central Mass during the late afternoon and evening hours of Wednesday.
Given the tropical nature of the atmosphere on Wednesday, frequent lightning and heavy downpours with localized flooding is expected with any thunderstorm activity.
High temperatures Wednesday will be near 80 Degrees. It will be quite humid on Wednesday and this will make things feel quite uncomfortable.
Wednesday Night Through Thursday: That cold front will make its push through Southern New England during Wednesday night and part of Thursday. This, combined, with the moisture from the remnants of Barry, will lead to widespread heavy showers and scattered thunderstorms throughout much of Wednesday night and much of Thursday. Given that it’s going to be very humid on Wednesday night and Thursday, heavy downpours are likely with the potential for street and poor drainage flooding.
Total rainfall amounts from Wednesday afternoon through Wednesday night and Thursday will range from one half of an inch of rain from northern Worcester County to the upper Pioneer Valley to around 1 inch of rainfall from southern Worcester County to the lower Pioneer Valley. Upwards of one and one half inches (1.50) of rainfall is expected across northern and northeastern Connecticut.
Low temperatures Wednesday night will be between 68 and 72 Degrees. High temperatures Thursday will be around 75 Degrees.
Friday: There will likely be some morning clouds and maybe a shower or two around, especially across Central Mass. By Friday afternoon, however, skies will become partly sunny with hot and humid conditions. High temperatures Friday will be around 90 Degrees with heat index readings of near 100 Degrees during the afternoon.
A Very Hot & Humid Weekend Is Expected: A sunny, but very hot and humid day is expected on Saturday. High temperatures Saturday will be between 95 and 99 Degrees. Heat index readings Saturday afternoon will be near 105 Degrees.
Sunday is expected to be partly sunny, very hot and humid. There may be a couple of showers and thunderstorms around late in the afternoon and evening Sunday across Western Mass. High temperatures Sunday will be near 95 Degrees. Heat index readings Sunday afternoon will be around 100 Degrees.
