First Warning Weather

A chilly, dry night ahead followed by a warmer end to the week

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

Clouds have lingered much of the day due to low pressure slowly departing from northern New England. Clouds will gradually decrease as drier air moves in, but an upper level disturbance will be passing to our south and moving out to sea overnight, which could keep some patchy clouds around. We will get colder tonight with lows falling back into the lower 30s for most. If skies can clear completely, some may reach upper 20s by dawn, so prep for a cold start in the morning.

High pressure to our south will bring a few days of sunshine and warmer temperatures from Thursday to Saturday. We return to the upper 50s Thursday, then many will get into the mid 60s Friday and possibly Saturday as well. Low pressure off the Atlantic coast and low pressure over the Midwest will allow us to get breezy Friday and Saturday as well.

Strong low pressure will move into New England Sunday. This storm system looks to bring periods of rain throughout the day along with strong, gusty Northwest winds. This system will also usher in much colder air Sunday evening through early next week and if moisture lingers Sunday night into Monday, we may see some snow showers in the mix as well-especially in the Berkshires.

This low will gradually move out and winds will lighten by Tuesday with some breaks of sun and drier weather. Travel Wednesday is looking quiet for now, but there is hinting of another system that may impact New England Wednesday-Thanksgiving, but there’s little to no agreement with forecast models at this time-stay tuned!
