First Warning Forecast

Gloomy Saturday, Joaquin stays out-to-sea

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

A cloudy and chilly weather pattern will continue across western Mass today thanks to a stalled out front just off shore. Conditions will start to improve tomorrow as high pressure slowly takes hold.

If you are heading over to the Big E this afternoon or evening be sure to keep the umbrella handy and dress warm. Temperatures will only reach into the lower 50s with a chilly breeze. Pockets of drizzle and showers will slowly taper off this afternoon so things will dry out a bit later on. 

An area of high pressure will slowly build in from Canada starting tomorrow. It will be another breezy day but morning clouds should give way to some afternoon brightening or sunshine. The final day of The Big E will be decent, at least you wont need your rain gear. 

Tomorrow will start a nice, dry October stretch as Joaquin passes well out-to-sea. Much of next week is looking seasonable with a fair amount of sunshine. The next chance of rain after today wont be until perhaps Friday. 

Hurricane Joaquin: As of this morning (Saturday) Joaquin remains a Category 3 hurricane  top winds of 125 mph. He is moving away from the Bahamas to the NE at 13 mph. He  will pass well out-to-sea and will have NO impact on our weather here in western Mass! He will likely pass just to the east of Bermuda on Monday as a Category 1 hurricane. 

Coastal areas or Mass and Rhode Island will still have to deal with high seas, dangerous rip currents and gusty winds. 20-30 mph over the open waters into the beginning of the week. But overall even there impacts will be minor.
