Sprinkles overnight; Showers/T-storms Tuesday

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

Our fantastic stretch of weather continued this afternoon, but is coming to an end very quickly. A round of showers and sprinkles are heading into the valley from Berkshire County. While we aren't talking about a ton of rain with this round of showers, something is better than nothing.

We have a little better chance for a few showers here and there tonight into tomorrow morning. It will be rather mild and muggy overnight. You'll need to keep the ACs and fans cranking. As a cold front approaches the region tomorrow, we'll see our best chance for some rain with scattered showers and thunderstorms tomorrow evening. The greatest chance of seeing severe storms tomorrow will be across Berkshire County. The Storm Prediction Center places the Berkshires under a Slight Risk for Severe Weather with damaging winds and large hail. This will certainly be more the exception than the rule. 

The front will move through the area slowly, so there will be a couple of leftover showers/storms on Wednesday as well. Both days will be muggy with dew points in the 60s and temps in the low 80s. 

By the way, we certainly need the rain.  Parts of western Mass are now under a moderate drought. Year-to-date we are running about 5" below normal. We've picked up 15" of rain thus far, where we should be closer to 20" at this point. 

High pressure briefly builds in on Thursday before another front approaches with more rain on Friday. The rain is short-lived as the 4th of July weekend is shaping up to have lots of sunshine and mild temperatures. Great weather for firework viewing!
