For The Rest Of Today: Plenty of sunshine is expected throughout the rest of today across Western and Central Mass. High temperatures this afternoon will be between 45 and 50 Degrees.

Tonight: A warm front is expected to lift northward across southern New England tonight. Skies tonight will be cloudy across the entire area. In addition, a few rain showers are possible at times tonight. Low temperatures tonight will be near 35 Degrees.

Friday: A cold front is expected to push across western Mass around midday Friday and then move through Central Mass during the early and mid-afternoon hours of Friday.

Skies on Friday will be cloudy, however, some partial sunshine is possible by late afternoon. In addition, scattered rain showers are expected with the front around midday Friday across Western Mass and during the early afternoon hours across Central Mass.

High temperatures Friday will be between 50 and 55 Degrees which will occur around midday Friday. Temperatures are expected to fall quickly through the 40s across Western Mass during the early and mid-afternoon hours and across Central Mass during the mid and late afternoon hours.

Winds will shift into the west and northwest during the afternoon and will gust up to 30 to 35 mph.

Friday Night: Clear to partly cloudy skies, cold and windy conditions are expected across the entire area. Low temperatures Friday night will be near 25 Degrees. West to Northwest winds will gust up to 30 to 35 mph throughout Friday night with wind chill temperatures in the teens to near 20 Degrees expected.

Saturday: Saturday is expected to feature sunny to partly sunny skies with high temperatures between 40 and 45 Degrees.

Saturday Night & Sunday: There is the possibility for a little bit of wintry weather in the form of an icy mix of sleet and freezing rain across parts of Western and Central Mass late Saturday night into Sunday morning.

An area of low pressure is expected to track from near southeastern Virginia late Saturday night to near Nantucket during Sunday afternoon. Overall, this storm system looks rather mild as there is likely going to be no high pressure system located to our north to feed this storm cold air. With that said, some near freezing or sub-freezing temperatures may get dammed up across Western and Central Mass leading to a period of icing late Saturday night into Sunday morning before milder air wins out and causes a change to rain everywhere across Western and Central Mass by midday Sunday.

So, to sum things up – it appears that some light freezing rain and sleet will overspread Western and Central Mass late Saturday night (probably between 2 and 4 am). This light freezing rain and sleet will continue into Sunday morning before changing to all rain by late morning Sunday. Rain is then expected to continue through Sunday afternoon before ending early Sunday evening.

Obviously, any ice accumulations late Saturday night and Sunday morning could lead to slippery conditions – so, be aware of this if you have travel plans Sunday morning. Road conditions are likely to improve and just be wet by midday Sunday.

Finally, even though this looks like a mainly rain event, I am still somewhat concerned that this storm’s circulation may be able to pull down some colder air near the end of the storm on Sunday evening. Should this happen, and I don’t think that it will, it could mean a flip from rain to snow with some snow accumulation Sunday evening.

Monday Through Wednesday: Sunny skies are expected on both Monday and Tuesday. High temperatures Monday will be near 45 Degrees. High temperatures Tuesday will be between 45 and 50 Degrees.

A cold front will move across the region on Wednesday bringing with it cloudy skies and some scattered rain shower activity. High temperatures Wednesday will be near 55 Degrees.

Outlook For Thanksgiving Day: Sunny skies are forecast for Thanksgiving Day with high temperatures near 45 Degrees. Northwest winds are forecast to gust up to 30 mph as well.

For The Rest Of Today: A cool and raw rest of the day is expected across Western and Central Mass as an offshore low pressure system causes a north to northeast wind to influence our weather.

A few spotty rain or snow showers are possible throughout the rest of this morning.

For this afternoon, however, it looks like precipitation will blossom and expand across much of Western and Central Mass as that offshore storm system wraps some moisture around on its western side. This means that a steady light rain is expected across a large part of Western and Central Mass throughout this afternoon.

Some wet snow may mix in with the rain at times this afternoon across the Worcester Hills, across the Hilltowns of Western Mass and across the Berkshires.

Rain will end across Western Mass by late this afternoon with the rain continuing across Central Mass into early this evening.

Temperatures the rest of today will remain steady in the upper 30s to low 40s.

Tonight: Any leftover light rain & higher elevation rain-snow mix across Central Mass will end this evening. Gradual clearing is then expected after midnight tonight. Low temperatures tonight will be near 30 Degrees.

Thursday: Thursday is expected to be a sunny to partly sunny day with high temperatures between 45 and 50 Degrees.

Thursday Night: Skies will be cloudy on Thursday night as a warm front lifts across the area. Low temperatures Thursday night will be between 30 and 35 Degrees.

Friday: A cold front is expected to push across southern New England during Friday afternoon bringing with it some scattered rain shower activity.

Friday still looks to be the warmest day of this week with high temperatures near 55 Degrees.

Once that cold front moves through, temperatures are likely to fall through the 40s during the mid and late afternoon hours of Friday.

This Weekend: Saturday is expected to feature sunny to partly sunny skies with high temperatures near 45 Degrees.

As we get into Saturday night and Sunday, an area of low pressure is expected to track near or to the southeast of Nantucket. This storm system may move close enough to our area to produce rain across the valleys of Western and Central Mass and possibly snow across the Hilltowns of Western Mass and across the Worcester Hills late Saturday night through Sunday morning. During Sunday afternoon, temperatures may be warm enough for all rain across all of Western and Central Mass.

At this point, any snow accumulations over the hills of Western and Central Mass will be light with the heaviest amounts staying to our north. That said, this storm is still 4 days away from happening and the weather guidance seems to be trending towards an overall stronger storm. This means it is a storm to really keep an eye on. The reason why is because I am concerned that the circulation with this storm will be able to pull down some colder air, which could lead to more widespread snow than what I am forecasting right now.

Monday Through Tuesday: Sunny skies are expected on both Monday and Tuesday. High temperatures Monday will be near 45 Degrees. High temperatures Tuesday will be between 45 and 50 Degrees.

For The Rest Of Today: Generally cloudy skies are expected for the rest of the day today, although there could be some breaks in the clouds with peeks of sunshine for areas south of the Mass Pike.

High temperatures this afternoon will be between 40 and 45 Degrees.

Tonight: An area of low pressure is expected to form well offshore of the New England coast later tonight.

Skies tonight will be cloudy across Western & Central Mass. While most areas will stay dry, some drizzle is possible late tonight across areas south of the Mass Pike. In addition, given that temperatures will be near freezing, some very patchy freezing drizzle is possible along and south of a line from Springfield to Auburn. At this point, it’s a very low chance event, but it is something to keep an eye on.

Low temperatures tonight will be in the low 30s.

Wednesday: That low pressure system will head for the eastern part of Atlantic Canada on Wednesday.

Skies on Wednesday will be cloudy across Western and Central Mass. A relatively moist northeasterly wind flow will produce rain and snow showers across the region from about late morning through Wednesday afternoon. Given that temperatures will be above freezing during this time period, no snow accumulation is expected.

High temperatures Wednesday afternoon will be between 38 and 42 Degrees.

Wednesday Night: Any leftover rain and snow shower activity will end during Wednesday evening with gradual clearing expected after midnight Wednesday night. Low temperatures Wednesday night will be between 25 and 30 Degrees.

Thursday: Thursday is expected to be a sunny to partly sunny day with high temperatures between 45 and 50 Degrees.

Friday: A cold front is expected to push across southern New England during Friday afternoon bringing with it some scattered rain shower activity.

Friday still looks to be the warmest day of this week with high temperatures near 55 Degrees.

Once that cold front moves through, temperatures are likely to fall into the mid to upper 20s during Friday night. In addition, northwest winds gusting up to 35 mph will lead to Wind Chill temperatures in the teens during Friday night.

This Weekend: Saturday is expected to feature partly sunny skies with high temperatures between 40 and 45 Degrees.

As we get into Saturday night and Sunday morning, an area of low pressure is expected to track near or to the southeast of Nantucket. This storm system may move close enough to our area to produce some rain across the valleys of Western and Central Mass and possibly some snow across the Hilltowns of Western Mass and across the Worcester Hills late Saturday night into Sunday morning. At this point, it doesn’t look like a big storm at all and more like a glancing blow at most. With that said, given that this possible storm is still almost 5 days away from happening, it needs to be watched closely in case it tracks closer to our area.
