It was a cold start this morning with temperatures falling into the 20s and 30s. We broke a record low for May 10th. We got down to 27°, breaking the old record of 30° set in 1947.
After a rather chilly start this morning, we saw a pleasant afternoon thanks to a fair amount of sunshine and temperatures in the upper 60s and lower 70s. The dry and warm weather will continue for the next couple of days before changes arrive to close out the week.
A chilly night is on the way tonight, though it should not be as cold as last night. A Frost Advisory is in effect for Berkshire, Franklin and Hampshire counties into tomorrow morning. Under clear skies tonight, temperatures will fall back into the middle 30s with some of the colder spots falling into the lower 30s.
High pressure will remain in charge through Thursday, keeping clouds and rain away. Sunshine will prevail with daytime highs reaching into the 70s much of the week with overnight lows into the 30s and low 40s.
A cold front will bring clouds and showers by Friday afternoon, but most of the day will be dry. Keep the umbrella handy for a round of showers moving through in the afternoon or evening.
We should dry out for Saturday morning's Spirit of Springfield Pancake Breakfast with spotty showers possible in the afternoon and evening. Much of the weekend is looking dry with plenty of sunshine on Sunday.
