Skies continued to be mostly cloudy this afternoon, but at least we've saw a few sunny breaks! Now, however, we're dealing with showers and downpours into thru the evening. What else is new, right?
Our temperatures topped off at 65° in Springfield. Not bad, especially since it's the first time this month we made it above 60. That marks 6 consecutive days of below average temperatures. Couple that with the rain we've seen each day, it's really meant for a dreary start to May - probably not the one you had hoped for.
A huge upper level low continues to spin the shore of Virginia. It will not move completely out of our area until Sunday. During that time, it will slowly weaken and drift south while throwing clouds and and a few showers across western Mass tomorrow and early Sunday. A cold front will move through Sunday morning and will push this system out-to-sea, finally.
Clouds will give way to peaks of sunshine tomorrow but once again there is the chance for a few spot showers in the afternoon. Tomorrow will still feature lots of clouds but most of the day will be dry. You should be able to get most of your outdoor plans in.
A cold front will move through Mother's Day morning bringing a few showers and downpours followed by afternoon sunshine, finally! This front should push the clouds out in time to salvage the afternoon. There is a slight chance for some afternoon popup showers, maybe even a rumble of thunder or two. That said, it will still be the first time in 8 days that we've seen mostly sunny skies.
