First Warning Weather

Morning sun fades behind increasing afternoon clouds

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

It's a dry start to our weekend but we will contend with some shower chances to close it out. While it does not look like a washout tomorrow that will feature a better chance for showers as well as cooler temperatures. The unsettled weather will stick around to kick off the new work week.

High pressure offshore will hang on for most of today, however after a sunny start, clouds will be on the increase in the afternoon.  Most of the day will remain dry but there is the chance for a spot sprinkle or shower.  Highs today will top out in the upper 60s and lower 70s. Cloudy skies are expected tonight and there is the chance for a shower. Lows fall back into the upper 40s to around 50.

An area of low pressure will slide south of New England Saturday night then stall in the Gulf of Maine on Sunday. That combined with a upper level trough moving through the region means a better chance for showers. While tomorrow does not look like a total washout if you are going to be out you will probably want to keep the umbrella handy. A northeasterly flow off the Atlantic will also mean cooler temperatures with highs in the low to middle 60s. 

We remain unsettled into Monday with an occasional shower possible. Tuesday will feature more downpours as another low treks up the coast.
