Cooler tonight and Thursday with rain on the way

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

Tonight we get cool as high pressure builds in to our north. Expect dry air, light winds and mainly clear skies overnight, which will allow temps to fall into the 40s to low 50s by morning. Some valley fog is possible through dawn as well.

High, thin clouds will be on the increase Thursday morning, however it will be a dry, cool start to the day. Skies become mostly cloudy as we go into the afternoon and scattered showers start moving in from the southwest. With a warm front to our south and an easterly breeze, expect a cooler day with highs hitting the low and middle 60s.

A light rain Thursday night will shift back to scattered showers Friday as low pressure moves north and a cold front remains across central New York. This front will move through our area Friday night and some moisture may get pulled into it from a nearby tropical system-bringing us a decent rain through Saturday morning. Low pressure gets stronger and heads to Maine, which will increase winds from the west and keep showers around much of Saturday.

We are windy and cooler this weekend with west-northwest winds possibly nearing advisory levels in spots-especially through the higher elevations. Our temperatures during the day will stay in the 50s and lows get back to the 30s. Sunday is looking dry with some sunshine, but again, still windy. We won’t be as windy Monday and a quick-moving Clipper will bring a few showers. High pressure will bring sunshine, dry air, lighter winds, and below normal temps Tuesday and Wednesday.
