Dry and breezy this afternoon; more sunshine for Friday

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

The rain has moved out and things are looking much improved this afternoon. We picked up a solid 1.5 -2.5" of rain across western Mass. over the past two-and-a-half days. Today will be a totally different story!

We'll see a mixture of sunshine and clouds with temperatures running well above-normal. Our normal high for this time of the year is 43°. It will be breezy and still rather mild with high temperatures reaching into the middle 50s. Not bad for December 1st, the first day of Meteorological Winter. 

An upper level system will spin across the Northeast tomorrow and Saturday as cooler air slowly drains in.  It will be breezy with partly cloudy skies both days. Temperatures will still reach into the upper 40s tomorrow but will continue to cool as they fall into the low to mid 40s for the weekend. Sunday will feature a bit more in the way of sunshine as this upper level system moves out. Aside from a snow shower across the Berkshires, we remain dry though the weekend. 

There is a chance for some spotty light precipitation on Monday as a weak system moves through the Northeast. Tuesday into Wednesday gets interesting. Deep Arctic cold spreads across the United States, but modifies a bit before reaching New England. Still, with cold air in place, it is possible we end up with some snowfall throughout the entire area. Stay tuned!
