First Warning Forecast

Record-breaking warmth for Tuesday

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

Expect warm temperatures to continue across New England over the next few days…

Mild and a little balmy overnight with a lot of clouds. A shower or two is possible from a weakening system moving southeast out of NY State, but most of it should miss us to the north. A little fog is possible if skies clear at all.

We begin Tuesday mild with temperatures in the mid and upper 50s to start. With more sunshine and a stronger southwest breeze on tap, we are looking at a possible record-breaking warm day! Highs will reach the lower to mid 80s through the afternoon, so dress accordingly! We stay breezy too with occasional gusts to 25 mph.

A cold front moves through Wednesday with a few showers possible, but it will actually end up being a mostly sunny day and still warm with highs back to around 80. This front will stall just south of our area and low pressure will move along it from the southwest on Thursday. Expect more clouds and the chance for showers Thursday from this system, then possible rain Friday depending on a coastal low and how it interacts with our cold front-stay tuned.

Much cooler air looks to return going into the weekend along with some gusty winds as strong low pressure moves into northeast Canada. The higher elevations through the Berkshires and getting into the mountains of northern New England may see some flurries by Saturday or Sunday and the rest of us may get a shower along with cooler highs in the 50s. There is still a good deal of uncertainty for next weekend’s weather so watch for changes!
