First Warning Weather

Frigid Night; Temperatures Moderate Thru Friday

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

Temperatures have topped out in the middle 20s. Thankfully the winds have calmed today, keeping our wind chills in the teens for much of the day.

Tonight will be another frigid night under clear skies and calm winds. Lows will again drop in to the single digits, but without a wind, we don't have to worry about wind chills. Temperatures will go from the single digits to near 40 by tomorrow afternoon as the frigid cold air lifts and retreats back into Canada. Along with the warmer afternoon temperatures skies will remain mainly sunny. 

With clear skies and no wind again tomorrow night, temperatures will dip into the lower teens. However, just like tomorrow, temperatures on Thursday, will reach back close to 40 in the afternoon.

We will add a few clouds in the sky on Friday, with temperatures reaching in to the mid 40s. Our next weather feature arrives Friday night into Saturday, but it is looking weaker and a bit too warm to support snow. We are not expecting much precipitation the Friday night into Saturday system. If anything, we could see a light icy mix arrive overnight.

A second system will arrive on its heels for the second half of the weekend.  This system is also looking too mild to support snow. Although it may have a bit more precipitation with it, it will most likely fall in the form of rain at some point on Sunday.

As we begin next week, we will see colder air moving in again with no snowstorms on the horizon.
