First Warning Forecast

Fantastic start to The Big E

Posted: Updated:
SPRINGFIELD, MA (WGGB/WSHM) -

Our stretch of warm, sunny weather will continue as we close out the week today but a cool down starts this weekend that lasts into the last few days of summer. 

It will be cool and comfortable this morning with some locally dense fog in the river valleys. 

Any early morning fog will dissipate quickly and we can expect more sunshine today along with another warm, dry afternoon. It will be nearly perfect for the opener of The Big E (if not a bit too warm!) as highs top out in middle 80s once again. The record high for today is 88 set in 1948. 

After more early morning fog tomorrow, skies will be partly to mostly sunny during the day as some high and middle clouds arrive. Tomorrow will continue to be warm and pleasant with temperatures back into the lower 80's. Clouds will increase overnight as a front approaches and swings through. There's quite a bit of energy passing just to our north but very little moisture to work with. Still, we might be able to squeeze out a shower or two very early Sunday.

Otherwise, Sunday looks great! Clouds clear near dawn. During the day, we can expect a deep blue sky, low humidity, a nice breeze and comfortable temperatures with sunshine - a perfect early Fall-like day! 

Our beautiful stretch looks as though it may last though most of next week as another area of high pressure takes hold of our weather pattern. This is great news for Big E goers and officials.  This time it will be cooler and more fall-like with temperatures most of next week top off in the 70s in the afternoons and falling into the 40's during the overnights.
