It was a mostly sunny but cooler afternoon as temperatures topped out in the upper 30s and lower 40s. We see clouds increase tomorrow but the day will remain dry. We continue to track the possibility for some snow Sunday night into Monday.
Skies will remain mostly clear tonight and a cold night is on the way as overnight lows drop back into the middle and upper teens. If you are heading to the St. Patrick's Day Parade in Holyoke tomorrow you will want to bundle up. Highs will top out in the mid to upper 30s. Sunshine in the morning will begin to fade behind increasing clouds in the afternoon.
We continue to watch for the potential for a coastal storm that could bring some snow to the region late Sunday night into Monday morning. The latest computer models have shifted this storm slightly to the west which means we could see a minor accumulation here in Western mass. Keep in mind that a shift in the track of this storm east or west will make a difference in the amount of snow that we see so we will still need to keep a close eye on this storm. As far as accumulations at this point we are thinking about a coating - 2" with the higher amounts in eastern Hampshire and Hampden counties.
Temperatures will slowly begin to warm up next week with highs approaching the middle 50s and near 60 by late next week.
