First flakes could fall this weekend in parts of Massachusetts

Weekend storm to bring rain, gusty winds to Massachusetts, first flakes for some

THEY ARE. I THINK THE WEATHER IS JUST GOING TO ADD A LITTLE EXTRA CHALLENGE FOR THEM. I THINK THEY’LL BE ABLE TO GET THROUGH IT. OKAY. HEY, WE’VE MADE IT TO NOONTIME WITHOUT ANY MEASURABLE RAIN IN BOSTON SO FAR TODAY. YOU CAN SEE WE’VE HAD A LITTLE BIT HERE THROUGH NORTHERN WORCESTER COUNTY, THREE A FEW HUNDREDTHS OF AN INCH. AND ALMOST A HALF AN INCH OF RAIN OUT IN WESTERN MASSACHUSETTS ALREADY. THAT’S WHERE THE FOCUS OF THE WET WEATHER HAS BEEN SO FAR. BUT THAT AXIS IS GOING TO BE SHIFTING EASTWARD THIS EVENING. SO YOU CAN SEE THE MOISTURE MOVING FROM SOUTH TO NORTH. THERE’S AN AREA OF MOISTURE DOWN THE COAST. THERE’S MORE ENERGY AND MOISTURE BACK TO THE WEST. AND THESE ARE GOING TO COME TOGETHER AND BRING US SOME HEAVIER RAIN AS WE GO FROM TONIGHT THROUGH THE DAY ON SATURDAY. AND THEN WE’LL START TO DRY OUT ON SUNDAY. POTENTIAL IS THERE FOR A WIDESPREAD ONE TO MAYBE UP OVER AN INCH OF RAIN IN SPOTS. COULD GET A LITTLE CLOSER TO 2 TO 3IN OUT IN THE WESTERN PART OF THE STATE. SO THIS IS GOING TO BE A SOAKING RAIN. AND YOU’RE SAYING WHAT’S NEW, RIGHT? IT’S THE WEEKEND. OF COURSE IT’S GOING TO RAIN. IT ALWAYS RAINS ON THE WEEKENDS. IT’S NOT YOUR IMAGINATION. WE’VE HAD 20 WEEKENDS SINCE JUNE 1ST, ONLY FIVE. THAT’S IT. HAVE BEEN TOTALLY DRY IN BOSTON SINCE THEN. SO IT HAS BEEN A PATTERN THAT WE HAVE BEEN STUCK IN FOR FAR TOO LONG. SO IF YOU ARE TRYING TO GET OUT BETWEEN THE RAIN, I THINK SATURDAY MORNING MAY BE YOUR BEST BET BECAUSE I THINK WE’RE GOING TO SEE HEAVIER RAIN MIDDAY SATURDAY, RIGHT THROUGH THE AFTERNOON HOURS. AND THEN AS WE GET INTO SUNDAY, THERE MIGHT BE A LINGERING SHOWER. BUT SUNDAY IS MORE ABOUT THE WIND WITH THOSE WESTERLY WIND GUSTS UP TO AROUND 30MPH. SO THAT COMBINATION OF THE WIND AND THE RAIN GOING TO BRING A LOT OF LEAVES DOWN AS WE GET INTO THE WEEKEND. THE WINDS TODAY OUT OF THE SOUTH, THEY’RE LIGHT, BUT ENOUGH TO PUSH THE TEMPERATURES UP INTO THE LOW TO MID 60S DESPITE THE FACT THAT WE’VE HAD ALL THE CLOUD COVER TODAY, WE’LL CLIMB A COUPLE MORE DEGREES. AND YOU CAN SEE IN BOSTON, IT’S MOSTLY DRY THIS AFTERNOON. AND THEN THE DEEPER WE GET INTO THE EVENING HOURS, THAT’S WHEN THE RAIN STARTS TO WORK ON IN BUT OUT THROUGH WORCESTER COUNTY. BY 3:00 THIS AFTERNOON, THERE WILL BE SOME SHOWERS UP INTO SOUTHWEST NEW HAMPSHIRE. AND THAT CONTINUES THROUGH THE EVENING COMMUTE SIX, 7:00 THIS EVENING. AND THEN AFTER 7 P.M., YOU CAN SEE HOW THOSE SHOWERS START TO PUSH TOWARD THE COASTLINE. SO THERE’LL BE SOME ELEMENTS OF SHOWERS OVERNIGHT INTO FIRST THING TOMORROW MORNING. BUT LOOK, A LITTLE BIT OF A LULL FIRST THING SATURDAY MORNING. SO TONIGHT, THE RAIN WILL PICK UP, ESPECIALLY WHERE WE HAVEN’T SEEN IT IN EASTERNMOST, MASSACHUSETTS. IT’S CAPE ANN OUT A RUMBLE OF THUNDER. WE’RE NEAR 50 TONIGHT AND TOMORROW IS LOOKING LIKE A WET DAY. RAIN WILL BE HEAVY AT TIMES. TEMPERATURES IN THE LOWER 60S. A THUNDERSTORM IS POSSIBLE TOMORROW AS WELL. BUT THERE IS YOUR BEST BET FOR DRY WEATHER. 8 A.M. TILL ABOUT NOONTIME. I WOULD SAY, BECAUSE ONCE WE GET PAST NOONTIME, LOOK AT HOW THE RAIN IS JUST FILLING IN. THIS IS WHEN WE COULD SEE SOME DOWNPOURS. MAYBE THAT THUNDERSTORM MIDDAY INTO THE AFTERNOON. AND THEN BY SIX, 7:00, THE HEAVIER RAIN IS LIFTING NORTH, BUT IT IS STILL RAINING. AND THEN SATURDAY EVENING, THAT RAIN WILL TAPER OFF. LITTLE BREAK IN THE ACTION SUNDAY MORNING THROUGH ABOUT MIDDAY. AND THEN A PASSING SHOWER IS POSSIBLE AS WE GET INTO SUNDAY AFTERNOON. THE STORM IS GOING TO BE WRAPPING UP TO OUR NORTH AND CRANKING THE WINDS. SO SATURDAY NIGHT INTO SUNDAY, THERE YOU SEE THE WIND GUSTS UP AROUND 30MPH. AND THOSE CONTINUE MUCH OF THE DAY. SO A WET AND WINDY WEEKEND. AND IT’S NOT JUST HERE IN SOUTHERN NEW ENGLAND. YOU’RE THINKING OF HEADED NORTH. WELL, WE’RE ONLY IN THE 50S SATURDAY. IT’S GOING TO BE WET AND SUNDAY LOOKS A LITTLE WETTER UP NORTH. I THINK WE MAY SEE AT LEAST SOME BREAKS IN THE CLOUDS HERE IN SOUTHERN NEW ENGLAND ON SUNDAY. TEMPERATURES TRENDING DOWN TO THAT WESTERLY WIND PULLING IN SOME COOLER AIR. SO WE’RE ONLY IN THE 50S FOR HIGHS MONDAY. THOSE WINDS SETTLE DOWN MONDAY NIGHT AND LOOK AT THOSE MORNING. LOW TEMPERATURES ON TUESDAY IN THE 30S COULD HAVE SOME FROST AWAY FROM THE COASTLINE, BUT IT IS

Weekend storm to bring rain, gusty winds to Massachusetts, first flakes for some

Rain, gusty winds and even a few flakes of snow are in store for parts of Massachusetts during the weekend ahead.A storm will from the Northern Plains will spawn a second area of low pressure that will blossom south of New England. The storm will move northward, bringing a period of rain and strong winds to southern New England. Showers will begin mid- to late Friday morning.”On Saturday if you are trying to get outside, I think the morning may be your best bet. Midday into the afternoon may be have the heaviest (rain),” StormTeam 5 chief meteorologist Cindy Fitzgibbon said. The rain will fill in during the afternoon, and downpours are possible. “I can’t rule out a thunderstorm on Saturday, as well,” Fitzgibbon said. As the storm begins to pull away from New England during Saturday night, the wind will increase on Sunday, gusting to between 30-40 mph. Depending on how quickly the colder air comes in, there is a possibility for some snowflakes to fly across the higher elevations of the Berkshires and Green Mountains of Vermont late Sunday night through Monday morning. Very little, if any, accumulation is expected.Temperatures should stay in the mid-50s on Monday but fall into the 30s for many areas outside of the city by Tuesday morning, resulting in a possible widespread frost.
