SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WGGB/WSHM) - It certainly feels more like fall out there this evening on this the first day of October. If you are heading over to The Big E you can leave the umbrella at home but be sure to keep the light jacket handy. Skies remain mostly cloudy tonight and the breeze will stick around as well. Lows fall back into the lower 40s overnight.
It looks as though we stay cool but mainly dry through the weekend! We may have a spot shower here and there but high pressure to our north should keep us mainly dry. There may even be a few sunny breaks from time to time. However high temperatures both Friday and Saturday will only reach into the 50s with a breeze.
Hurricane Joaquin: Now a Category 4 hurricane drifting WSW near the Bahamas with top winds of now 130 mph. He will turn north over the next day or so then slowly start his journey up the coast. He will likely position himself off the Carolina coast over the weekend. Where he goes from there is the big question. The tracking is looking further east but is very much in question. Lets plan on rain and some wind but not until Monday into Tuesday morning. The path of Joaquin is still "up in the air" and there are even still a couple of the more reliable models that bring him out-to-sea. Things will become more clear over the next couple of days.
