There were a few flakes and flurries across the hill towns this morning, believe it or now! We can thank a huge upper level low spinning across eastern Canada for the chill, wind, and clouds. Skies went from mostly cloudy to mostly sunny this afternoon with high temperatures only reaching into the upper 50s and low 60s. It was even cooler across the hills.
The big story of the day was the strong winds. We saw gusts ranging from 35-45 mph in some places, causing limited tree damage in the Pioneer Valley.
Thankfully the winds will considerably lighten as we head into the overnight. Temperatures will fall into the upper 30s to around 40. Clouds begin to build tomorrow morning as a weak system heads our way. We will see a few light showers or sprinkles to western Mass around mid-day tomorrow, however rainfall amounts will be scant. Temperatures begin to head in the right direction, with readings reaching into the upper 60s.
Much of this week is looking dry as rain stays to our south on Wednesday. This means sunshine will prevail as temperatures moderate back into the 70s by the end of the week.
