First Warning Weather

Abundant sunshine into the weekend

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

Today starts a beautiful stretch of weather that will last into the beginning of next week. 

A huge dome of high pressure will set up across the Northeast and it will have nowhere to go for days to come. This means we can expect abundant sunshine and dry conditions. 

Tonight we will see temperatures fall in to the upper 20s with mostly clear skies. They are two opportunities to see the International Space Station tonight. You’ll need to look towards the WNW at 8:01p and 9:37p.

We start tomorrow and Friday with lots of sunshine. Both days will be very seasonable with highs reaching into the middle and upper 50s and overnight lows down into the 20s. 

As this area of high pressure shifts slightly to the south, the air mass will warm up as we head into the weekend. Temperatures will reach into the 60s on Saturday and lower 70s by Sunday! All the while we hang onto sunshine. 

Be sure to use plenty of sunscreen! Don't be fooled by the cooler April air mass. The sun angle is comparable to that of late August. You can burn very quickly regardless of the temperatures. Hold off on putting in those gardens too. We'll have several mornings with temps below freezing. 

The next chance of rain will likely come Monday night as a cold front slips through the area. It will knock temps back into the 50s by next Tuesday. 

Note: With the dry weather we have, the pollen counts will be rising thru the next few days. Those with allergies will definitely be affected by this seasonal bloom.
