The storm formally known as Hermine will continue to bring periods of clouds through western Mass tonight, overnight and Thursday morning. A shower or two may be in the mix as well, though rain will be more into eastern Mass from now on as the storm finally begins moving away.
Expect warm, muggy conditions overnight with lows back to the 60s. If we can get a little lengthy clearing, some lower 60s are possible-especially in the Berkshires. Lots of clouds for Thursday morning and only a very slight chance for a shower. We begin to clear out in the afternoon as Hermine lifts northeast, but with the return of sunshine, we will get hot.
Heat will be the main focus to end the week as high pressure builds into the Southeast US. High temps Friday will climb into the upper 80s and low 90s behind a weak and mainly dry cold front that could bring a shower late Thursday night. Saturday looks mostly sunny, but a few degrees cooler with highs in the mid 80s-and slightly less humid.
A stronger cold front will move into our area Saturday night into Sunday morning. Scattered showers and thunderstorms are possible overnight, then skies will begin to clear Sunday. Cooler, drier air builds in with high pressure and we shift to a much more comfortable feel.
Sunny and pleasantly warm Monday and Tuesday, then clear and cool at night with lows in the 40s. Turning more humid and unsettled by midweek ahead of another cold front.
