First Warning Weather

Increasing clouds with the slight chance for a shower this afternoon

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

We are waking up to some areas of fog this morning and that has reduced visibility in some areas. A cold front could bring some showers to the region late today into tonight before some slow improvement later this weekend.

Clouds will be on the increase today but some breaks of sun are possible-especially early in the day. Clouds keep us a bit cooler with highs only climbing into the mid and upper 60s in the afternoon with a southerly breeze. Scattered and spotty showers are possible later in the day-mostly around and after dinnertime and possibly overnight as well. Lows tonight drop back into the upper 40s to around 50

A cold front moves east early Sunday, which should give us a mainly dry day with most showers remaining east. The Cape and much of the coast may get some decent rain Sunday from tropical moisture getting pulled into the cold front, but sadly we miss most of that here in western Mass.

High pressure will be building in Sunday, gradually clearing skies and allowing for breezy, cooler conditions. We get cold Sunday night with lows in the 30s, then we are looking at a sunny, cool Columbus Day. Tuesday morning temps may get close to freezing, then temperatures moderate through midweek. A few showers are possible Thursday with our next cold front. 

Hurricane Matthew Hurricane Matthew remains a very intense storm and while weakening is expected, hurricane force winds continue for the Southeast coast until the storm moves away from land Sunday. The storm hasn't officially made landfall, but a landfall is possible in northern Georgia or South Carolina.
