First Warning Weather

Mostly sunny, breezy and warm this afternoon

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

It's a cool start out there this morning but temperatures will rebound nicely this afternoon under mostly sunny skies. If you have outdoor plans this weekend just make sure to use plenty of sunscreen as the UV index will be high.

Expect mostly sunny skies this afternoon. Winds will not be as strong as they were yesterday but there will still be a bit of a breeze. Factor in that westerly wind between 5-12 mph combined with how dry we have been means that the fire danger is once again elevated this afternoon. Highs today top out in the lower 80s. Winds will diminish this evening and another cool night is on the way with overnight lows in the lower 40s.  

Sunshine sticks around on Monday and it gets even warmer with highs in the mid to upper 80s. It will still be dry with dew points in the 50s. A upper level disturbance could bring some showers to the region on Tuesday with highs in the mid to upper 80s. We could see some lower 90s on Wednesday under mostly sunny skies.
