Some showers and a few storms possible this afternoon
SPRINGFIELD, MA (WGGB/WSHM) -
Clouds will break to a few peaks of sunshine this afternoon as it becomes more humid. As a cold front approaches some downpours and a few thunderstorms will push in ahead of the front so we're not out of the woods when it comes to the rain just yet.
A few storms could be strong with gusty winds and torrential rains that leads to some brief poor-drainage flooding. However, a lack of sunshine for fuel before the frontal passage will limit the risk for severe weather. Skies will clear as we head into the evening as we dry things out.
Behind the front, tomorrow looks near-perfect. With low humidity and near full sunshine, highs top out in the lower 80s! Except for a few possible showers Thursday night as a weak front crosses, the rest of the week to follow looks dry.
