Another quiet night is ahead across the Pioneer Valley with overnight temps a little higher than Monday night. Lows will drop into the mid 50s to low 60s with a light southerly breeze and fair skies. A few high clouds will be around overnight as well as some patchy fog in the usual foggy spots through morning.
Ahead of a cold front, we will see more clouds, higher humidity and warmer temperatures Wednesday. Highs climb back into the mid and upper 80s Wednesday afternoon under partly sunny skies. A shower or thunderstorm is possible before sunset, but the best chances for rain arrive after. Spotty showers and thunderstorms are possible through Thursday morning and a few may have heavy rain.
A cold front will slowly exit New England Thursday, but clouds may linger into the afternoon. Canadian high pressure will build in Thursday night through Saturday with cooler temperatures and very dry air. Fall like weather will last into the holiday weekend.
At this point our forecast becomes questionable… we are tracking tropical depression 9, which looks to move north along the East Coast Sunday and Monday. This storm may get close to the New England coast through Labor Day, which would increase clouds, winds and rain chances. However, for now our forecast looks mainly dry with breezy conditions at the beaches and Cape. High waves and dangerous rip currents look likely from TD 8 and 9 over the weekend. Stay tuned for more updates as we get closer to the weekend.
