Chilly with a winter weather potential later this week

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

A cold night with temperatures falling into the low to mid 30s by dawn. We also keep a breeze from the west-northwest, which should inhibit frost formation, but keep us feeling like 20s and low 30s through the morning. A few clouds will be around now and then, but overall our Tuesday begins sunny.

We will have a good amount of sunshine Tuesday with some afternoon clouds and winds becoming blustery again. Temperatures will struggle to reach 50 and most hold in the 40s with winds gusting to 20-25mph, making it feel more like low to mid 40s. 

High pressure moves to our north Wednesday, allowing for even colder overnight temps in the 20s and low 30s Wednesday morning, highs Wednesday afternoon in the 40s and temps possibly getting into the low to mid 20s Wednesday night. We are tracking our next storm system for Thursday, so it depends on how quickly clouds build in Wednesday night-either way, it looks quite cold. A wintry, icy mix is looking possible Thursday morning, which may greatly impact the AM commute. This mix will transition to rain, which may be heavy at times Thursday afternoon through Friday.

Our weather pattern remains cooler than normal and active with a few weather systems affecting our area. After rain moves out Friday, another Clipper system moves in late Saturday, then possibly another Sunday into Monday. Temperatures will remain slightly below normal over the weekend, giving rain to the valley, but possibly some wet snow to the Berkshires. We will be blustery with these storm systems as well.
