Bitter cold with gusty winds and flurries

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

It will be windy and cold this afternoon with temperatures in the 20s but with winds gusting over 45 mph, from time to time, it will feel like it's in the single digits!  The system responsible for yesterday's snow continues to move away and strengthen. This is what is generating all the wind and pulling the cold air down from Canada.  A Wind Advisory remains in effect through this evening. Any Lake Effect flurries this afternoon will come to an end.

The winds will east tomorrow but a weak system will bring some clouds and a few flurries. The cold wont be has harsh with the lighter winds and high temps near 30. The cold will ease on Friday too as temperatures reach near 40 in the afternoon under a blend of sunshine and clouds. 

Our next storm system will arrive on Saturday but it's looking more and more as though the heaviest precipitation will stay off-shore. And with the cold air retreating temperatures will be borderline for winter precipitation. Based on this, it looks as though a light, rainy mix will break out late Friday night then end as a few snow showers around mid-day. Keep in mind the details are still a bit fuzzy so stay tuned. If this trend continues then rain will end before kick off for the Patriot's game Saturday evening.
