Another cool night ahead; lots of sun on Wednesday

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

Temperatures continue to cool off overnight with lows falling to either side of 50 degrees. Dew points are a bit higher overnight, so we won't be quite as cool and some valley fog is possible through dawn.

With high pressure in control across the Northeast, we are looking at another sunny day for Wednesday with only a few clouds here and there. A southwest breeze will help to usher in warmer air around high pressure departing the East Coast. Temperatures will climb into the mid and upper 80s, but dew points remain on the low side.  

As high pressure exits and a cold front continues moving in our direction from the west, our humidity levels will be on the rise for Thursday and Friday as well as increasing cloud cover. By Friday, the front will move through, but only with a chance for a shower or thunderstorm-very hit or miss and not the soaking rain we need.

Behind the front, a cooler, drier air mass returns for the weekend, with highs in the lower to mid 80s, sunshine and low humidity.

Our next cold front will arrive Monday with again only a very few rain chances. This front may stall just to our south Tuesday, keeping us a bit cloudy and unsettled.
