I can’t describe Tuesday’s weather other than ridiculously gorgeous!! Too bad we won’t be treated to another sunny and mild day anytime soon..
Instead of sunshine, we’ll be tracking a cloudy and damp Wednesday across western Massachusetts. You may see a few sprinkles and/or light showers through the morning, but the steady rain won’t arrive until this afternoon. After 3 PM, expect light, steady rain to spread across the region..so suffice to say, make sure you have the umbrella in tow as you head out the door! Light rain will continue to fall through about 9 PM, then we’ll start to see the change over to a rain/snow/sleet/freezing rain mix as the mercury drops into the 30s.
We’ll be waking up to light snow Thursday morning with temperatures in the teens! Expect light snow through Noon, then we’ll just have mainly cloudy skies through the rest of the afternoon. Snowflakes aside, Thursday will be a cold and windy day with highs only near 20-degrees!
If you’re not a fan or just completely over the snow, just be glad you don’t live in northern New England! Upstate New York, northern Vermont, northern New Hampshire, and Maine could be looking at a foot to a foot and a half of snow!!!!
That cold snap will be short-lived – temperatures will be back in the mid-30s on Friday with mostly sunny skies.
