While the greater Springfield area stays mainly dry tonight, low pressure southeast of Nantucket will bring accumulating snow to southeast Massachusetts, Cape Cod and the islands overnight. Light accumulations are possible in metro Boston and along the coast north of the city. Locally, perhaps a flurry or snow shower, otherwise expecting a mostly cloudy night for the Pioneer Valley with low temperatures 20 to 24 degrees. Light winds.
It remains chilly on Friday as highs max out between 35 and 39 degrees. Gusty winds up to 25 or 30 mph from the northwest will make it feel even colder. Skies average out partly cloudy through Friday night and there is the chance of a passing snow shower, especially in the afternoon or evening hours. Lows falling back to 23 to 27. Winds stay gusty into the evening.
The weekend remains colder than normal, dry and windy at times. Meanwhile, our next potential storm will be moving out of the Rockies and heading east over the weekend to be positioned off the mid-Atlantic coast Monday.
Saturday starts off mostly sunny, clouds building into the afternoon. Highs 38 to 42, with gusty northwest winds to 30 or 35 mph. That wind will bring the wind chills down into the 20s at times. Expect lows to dip to 23 to 27 overnight, under a partly cloudy sky.
Sunday should deliver more sunshine, not as cold or windy. Highs 40 to 44.
Increasing clouds Sunday night with skies becoming cloudy Monday. Depending where the mid-Atlantic storm tracks will impact what our weather is on Monday. A miss to the south and probably a mostly to partly cloudy day. If the storm tracks closer, we could be in for more snow. Stay tuned on that. Low temperatures Sunday night 26 to 30 degrees. Highs Monday about 40.
Tuesday, becoming partly cloudy, windy and continued cold. Highs 39 to 43. Hopefully we are not digging out from another substantial snowfall.
Enjoy your Friday and the upcoming weekend.
