The drought situation improved slightly for western Mass over the last week, mainly because of last Thursday's snow and rain. Unfortunately, our cold front today didn’t bring much rain to our area and we are going into another stretch of dry weather-which obviously won’t help the drought situation here in western Mass.
We are hanging on to clouds overnight with a slight chance for a few more sprinkles, but drier air will build in for Friday morning. Temperatures continue to fall into the lower 40s by dawn.
High pressure will be building in from the west and low pressure continues to move offshore Friday, keeping us blustery and chilly. Highs will climb into the upper 40s and low 50s Friday afternoon under sunny skies, but with the northwest wind, we will feel more like lower to mid 40s. High pressure moves into our region Friday night, allowing for lighter winds and therefore colder temps overnight with lows well into the 20s by Saturday morning.
We’ve got a typical November weekend on tap here in New England with patchy clouds, a continued breeze and cool temps around 50 both Saturday and Sunday. A second cold front comes through Saturday night with some clouds, but we should stay dry. Breezy and a bit cooler Sunday with some sun. We are still chilly Monday, but dry as high pressure remains in control. Warmer temps are in store Tuesday and Wednesday as high pressure moves offshore and our next front approaches from the west. A few showers possible late Wednesday with this front.
