Spring Warmth to Winter Cold with A Chance of Snow!

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

After a beautiful day with sunshine and mild temperatures yesterday, the warm-up continues today. Readings will reached into the mid to low 70s this afternoon as high pressure pushed off shore. We saw some strong southerly winds this afternoon, ushering in those warmer, early Summer-like temperatures.

As our next weather maker draws nearer, showers will develop late tonight and will continue off and on through tomorrow. It won't be a complete rain-out tomorrow, but we do add quite a few clouds to the mix. You'll definitely want the umbrella on standby. In between the showers, there will be some sunshine. We may even see a thunderstorm or two! Temperatures will stay mild overnight and will be back near 70 again on Friday.

Saturday features partly to mostly cloudy skies as the cold front remains just to our east. It will still be mild too with readings pushing 60. The morning will be dry with a few showers chances into the afternoon.

A second, stronger front along with some upper level energy will move through Saturday night into Sunday morning as a strong push of cold Canada air moves in. Along this front will come showers that will change to snow showers and snow squalls Sunday morning. The winds will be howling too - up to 50-60mph!

An Alberta Clipper will move through Monday with clouds and a mix of snow/rain. At this point we're not expecting much in the way of accumulation, but we are watching this closely. 

We remain unseasonably cool thru the middle of next week.
