First Warning Weather

Clear skies into the overnight

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

Clouds are decreasing, allowing the stars to shine brightly. With high pressure building in, our temperatures will fall to the mid 50s. You can give your ACs a break because you'll need them running tomorrow!

The heavy rain and downpours moved through the area this morning dumping 1-3" of rain. We certainly needed the rain and we got it! Some spots had to deal with flooded roads and huge puddles but now the rain water has receded and conditions will continue to improve.

WeatherBug rain totals:
Goshen – 1.52”
Longmeadow – 1.43”
Westfield Airport – 1.39”
Rowe – 1.21”

Wednesday and Thursday are both looking beautiful with a sunny, warm, and dry air mass settling in. Temperatures will reach into the 80s with dew points in the 50s -  very comfortable. We may see a few clouds building in on Thursday, but overall, it's definitely a nice stretch of days.

Our dew points increase a bit on Friday as temperatures reach back near 90. Even with the slight increase in humidity, it won't be overly uncomfortable and any storms should hold off until Saturday.

It looks as though a cold front will move through on Saturday, bringing a round of showers and a few thunderstorms followed by cooler, drier conditions for the rest of the weekend. The best chance for rain on Saturday will be during the morning. After the showers depart, the sun will come out as high pressure builds in once again.
