Spotty freezing mist tonight and tomorrow, Sunday soaker

Posted: Updated:
SPRINGFIELD, MA (AP) -

Clouds will thicken up this afternoon as low level moisture continues to work into the area. Later this evening there could be some patchy freezing drizzle developing making for a few icy spots. We are not expecting a ton of moisture but just enough to make things a bit slick. Certainly use extra caution if you are out and about tonight and tomorrow  morning. 

Tomorrow will stay cloudy and chilly with some morning, patchy freezing drizzle and maybe even a snowflake. Most of the day will remain dry with the main event arriving on Sunday. 

A developing area of low pressure across the Rocky Mountain states will zip east then move into the Great Lakes States by Sunday morning. This will bring lots of rain and warmth up in our direction for Sunday. Rain will move in early Sunday morning and will be heavy at times. It will  become breezy and mild too with temperatures reaching into the lower 50s. There may even be a rumble of thunder. It looks as though most of us will pick up a solid inch of rain by the time it comes to an end Sunday evening. 

The colder more seasonable air will move in behind this storm and will return next week with daytime highs mainly in the 30s. A piece of energy will dive out of Canada next Tuesday then develop into a sizable ocean storm. Right now it looks as though it will develop a bit too far east to bring us a classic snowstorm however there could be a touch of light snow or flurries Tuesday night into Wednesday and it's still very early so stay tuned!
