Good Tuesday morning I’m 22News Storm Team Meteorologist Nick Bannin. Early this morning we’ll be watching for thick fog, drizzle, some sprinkles and icy spots with temperatures near and slightly above freezing. Showers will spread through the area from 7AM-8AM with periods of heavy rain from 8AM-4PM. It won’t be raining heavily the whole time, but that is the period we expect rounds of very heavy rain and possibly a thunderstorm. Temperatures will be rising slowly at first and then very quickly as winds from the south increase pushing highs into the low 50s in the lower Pioneer Valley with mid 40s to upper 40s in Franklin County and parts of the Berkshires. Watch for minor street and stream flooding today. We’re also watching the potential for some ice jam flooding along the Millers River in eastern Franklin County.

Rainfall amounts should range from 0.5-1.5″ once the rain wraps up. I expect we’ll have the worst of the rain done by 4PM with just an isolated leftover shower or sprinkle into the early evening.A few breaks of sun might pop out in time for sunset tonight!

Overnight we’ll see drying, clearing and cooling as overnight lows drop to near 30 degrees. It’ll be a breezy if not windy night.

Much cooler for tomorrow with highs in the mid 30s with a mix of sun and clouds.

We’ll be tracking all the changes in weather today on 22News during the Today Show.
