SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WGGB/WSHM) - Happy Thanksgiving and thanks to a ridge of high pressure that is sliding to the east it will be a dry one. A light southeasterly wind will bring in some low clouds, but we'll stay dry and continue our warming trend.
Thanksgiving weather for morning football and church services will feature rising temperatures through the 40s. The area of high pressure that is moving away will continue to influence our weather with dry conditions Friday and our wind turns more southwesterly. Great news for the parade of big balloons on Main St. in Springfield. Temperatures will rise into the low 50s by 11 am for all the festivities. We may reach 60! (record high for the date is 62, set in 1946)
A developing storm across the Nation's heartland will deliver a wintry mix there. For us, a cold front will arrive late night Friday with a few light scattered showers near sunrise Saturday. Behind this front, cooler and drier conditions settle in to end the month of November. The next chance for significant rain is Tuesday night into Wednesday.
