This afternoon featured beautiful conditions for mid-November. Lots of sun and very few clouds allowed temperatures to rise near 60° this afternoon for much of western Mass.
Skies will remain clear tonight and temperatures drop off quickly after sunset. Overnight lows will fall back into the mid to upper 20s.
It will be a nice night for viewing the Super Moon, which is about 14% bigger and 30% brighter than usual. This is the closest Super Moon since January 1948. We won't see a full moon this large until 2034.
High pressure remains in place Monday as temperatures climb to near 60 in the afternoon. There may be a few high clouds moving in during the late afternoon as an area of low pressure off the Mid Atlantic tracks our way.
This system will likely bring us periods of rain on Tuesday. There could be some heavier downpours during the afternoon. Rain totals look to be around .25" to .50" for the area.
The rest of the week looks dry with a slow warming trend. By Thursday, temperatures will be back up near 60!
