Under clear skies and diminishing winds, temperatures will tumble into the 20s and lower 30s overnight. Be sure to cover up or bring in the potted plants-there will likely be widespread frost around by morning.
Freeze warnings have been posted for western Mass. Franklin and portions of Hampshire County have already seen their first frost of the year, so while they aren't include in the freeze warnings, you can expect all of western Mass to see frost overnight.
High pressure is in control again Tuesday, giving us another sunny, dry day. High temps climb into the mid 60s as a light wind shifts more southerly late in the day. High pressure continues to move to the northeast, which will allow for slightly milder temperatures through mid-week. Also, a few more clouds will be around due to a passing upper level disturbance.
We stay dry and rain free until late Thursday as a cold front moves in from the west. This front will bring a slight chance for a shower Thursday evening and night, then high pressure returns from Friday to Sunday with more sun, dry air and a shot of cooler temps. Our next front arrives early next week with another slight rain chance.
