Becoming partly sunny and breezy this afternoon

Posted: Updated:

SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WGGB/WSHM) - After a few days of chilly and damp condition across the region conditions will start to improve today as high pressure slowly takes hold. Temperatures will gradually moderate a few degrees each day right into mid-week.

If you are heading over to the Big E today for the final day of the fair you may want a light jacket. Skies will become partly sunny this afternoon but there will still be a bit of a breeze. Highs today will top out in the upper 50s to around 60. A chilly night on the way once again tonight as with partly cloudy skies lows will fall back into the upper 30s to around 40.  

Today will start a nice, dry October stretch as Joaquin passes well out-to-sea. Much of this week is looking seasonable with a fair amount of sunshine. It looks like our next chance for rain will come on Friday. 

Hurricane Joaquin: As of 8am Sunday Joaquin remains a Category 3 hurricane with top winds of 115 mph. He is moving toward the island of Bermuda to the NE at 21 mph. He  will pass well out-to-sea and will have NO impact on our weather here in western Mass! He will likely bring heavy rain and damaging winds to Bermuda through Monday morning.
