SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WGGB/WSHM) - After a chilly start this morning a seasonable afternoon is on the way thanks to a ridge of high pressure that is pushing through the region. We can expect mostly sunny skies this afternoon though some high, thin clouds may filter the sunshine from time to time. Highs today top out in the upper 40s to around 50.
Clouds increase tonight in advance of a cold front. The evening is dry but there is the chance for a few showers during the overnight with lows dropping back into the lower to middle 30s. That cold front will move through the area on Sunday morning with a few rain showers. Behind this front, a cold blast of air arrives Sunday night and Monday. Temperatures on Monday will struggle to reach 40 during the afternoon. It will be breezy as well, adding to the chill.
The chill doesn't last long! We moderate nicely, with dry conditions in time for travel day Wednesday and Thanksgiving! The early call for Thanksgiving is sunshine with highs into the 50s!
