First Warning Forecast

Chilliest night of the season; perfect weather for Friday

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

High pressure is building in overhead tonight, so calm winds and clear skies are likely. Dew points have been in the low 40s much of the day and will likely drop a bit more overnight, so temperatures will bottom out in the upper 30s to low 40s for many! Expect a chilly start Friday morning-grab a COAT!

Friday is looking like another beautiful day typical for early Fall with highs in the lower to mid 70s after beginning around 40. We will see lots of sunshine again and dew points remain in the 40s-allowing for a very comfortable day!

High pressure moves east and temperatures will climb a bit more Saturday along with some slightly higher dew points. A few clouds will drift in, but overall we look dry and pleasant.

A slow-moving cold front will enter our area Sunday, bringing a much more humid air mass into southern New England. This will help our rain chances and a good soaking is looking possible Sunday and Monday with scattered showers and thunderstorms. Because of our extreme to severe drought, the ground is incredibly dry, and therefore a lot of the rain that falls may just run off-bringing a flooding concern. We will monitor closely and update you on this threat as Monday draws closer.

We begin to dry out Tuesday as the front moves off the coast, then high pressure will bring back sunshine and pleasant conditions Wednesday and Thursday.
