SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WGGB/WSHM) - If you have been longing for the return of summer time heat and humidity your wish is about to come true. Temperatures in the upper 80s to lower 90s are on the way not just for this weekend but even into the early part of next week.
We can expect a mix of sun and clouds this afternoon. As a weak cold front approaches the region this afternoon we will see the chance for scattered showers and thunderstorms. Not everyone will see a shower or storm this afternoon but it is something to keep in mind if you do have outdoor plans. Highs will top out in the mid to upper 80s with dew points in the mid 60s.
There still could be a shower early this evening but otherwise expect partly cloudy skies with lows falling back into the lower 60s.
Even though the cold front moves offshore tonight there is no cool down ahead. Temperatures will reach close to 90 Sunday afternoon. In fact, there will be a couple of days heat and humidity to start next week with highs reaching to 90 or higher! We could see some showers and thunderstorms once again as we head into Tuesday and Wednesday.
