A Cold Night Ahead; A Few Flurry Chances in the Forecast

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

Temperatures will spend most of the afternoon in the low to mid 40s, under a mixture of sunshine and clouds. It will be a bit breezy but not bad at all for late January! The normal high for today is 33.

A split jet stream will steer an ocean storm well offshore tomorrow night into Friday morning. An upper level system will bring us a few flurries or a snow showers Friday midday, however the lack of moisture along with surface temperatures in the mid-30s will prevent any accumulation. 

There's another chance for light snow showers Saturday night from the next weak system. That will not amount to much as well. This frontal system will bring milder temperatures for Sunday and Monday with highs possibly topping out in the upper 40s to near 50!

With no arctic air in sight, temperatures will stay at or above-average for the next week. We'd call it a January thaw, but we're hardly frozen! 

There may be a few sprinkles or light rain showers on Monday afternoon followed by another surge of mild air for the middle of next week. After that we may go back to more seasonable conditions with a chance for a rain/snow mix on Wednesday.
