High pressure will supply us with plenty of sunshine this afternoon. It will be cool but pleasant with temperatures topping off in the middle 50s.
With clear skies and light winds overnight readings will dip into the 20s. The cool, dry air mass will stay with us for tomorrow as well with more seasonable temperatures. Sunshine will fade to some late day clouds tomorrow as moisture starts to stream our way.
Our next weather system will slide our way on Wednesday. An area of low pressure will track into the northeast from the Gulf of Mexico and will bring us our first good soaking in quite a while. Rain will likely be heavy at times Wednesday afternoon into the Wednesday night. Most of us need the rain and it looks as though we're going to get it. We can expect a solid 1-2" across western Mass. This is actually what's left of Patricia.
Things will dry out for Thursday with just a few leftover showers. It will be windy and mild on Thursday with temperatures well into the 60s, before cooler air works in to close out the workweek.
