FIRST WARNING

Snow to rain showers then a mild weekend

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

HEADLINES:

  • A few late day rain showers on a mild, breezy Saturday
  • Wind Advisory for the Berkshires through 6 am Saturday for gusts 35-50 mph.
  • Light snow will try and push in for Monday morning's commute
  •  A mid-week wintry mix may be on the way

As a low pressure system tracks through southern Canada, its trailing cold front moves in late in the daySaturday. It's mild ahead of it with a high near 50 under breezy conditions and we'll have a few scattered showers near sunset. After that, we're in for a dry, slightly less mild Sunday with sun and clouds. A weak area of low pressure and a warm front may track close enough Monday morning to bring the area some light snow. This snow could also miss us completely just brushing through CT. It's a close call. 

The next chance for a sizable storm will arrive late Tuesday into Wednesday. This has potential to bring us a substantial snowfall as well as a mix or change to rain if it tracks close to southern New England, but remains offshore. It's too early in the game for specifics of the forecast. What we do know is the east coast gets stormy and where it tracks means everything in terms of what type and how much precipitation we receive.
