FIRST WARNING

Sun to snow Friday

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

It will be another bright, sunny start to end the work-week, however, it will be a cold one with many in the lower teens. Even a few single numbers in the normally colder spots of Franklin county. With high pressure overhead, the wind will be very light.

A low pressure system will track to our north riding the Canadian border. Clouds return Friday afternoon as a developing warm front moves in. This, the leading edge of milder air will bring snow showers to us mid-evening and overnight Friday. As temperatures rise a bit, we'll see flakes transition to rain drops. The storm's trailing cold front will push in during the afternoon with a few more light scattered rain showers or sprinkles.

We could see a bit of light snow early Monday that may affect the commute. Not a big snowstorm, however it could make for a slower commute. The sun will return behind this system in the afternoon. A more important storm will develop in the Gulf of Mexico then move into the northeast late Tuesday into Wednesday. This storm will likely become another major east coast (Nor'easter) storm. The lack of a cold air supply close by as well as the track of the storm may lead to a mix of snow and rain. If we do get a significant snowfall, it will not be fluffy, that's for sure. Expect a pasty, heavy snow.
More on Monday's snow and the Nor'easter as they get closer.
