After a sunny end to the weekend clouds will begin to increase later tonight. A fast moving trough of low pressure will bring some light snow just in time for the morning commute on Monday.
We will start off with clear skies this evening but clouds will increase tonight as a weak trough of low pressure approaches the region. Lows tonight will drop back into the lower 20s. Some light snow develops before daybreak and continues through the morning. Snow could make for a slippery morning commute so allow for a little extra time as you head out tomorrow. The snow should change to rain here in the Springfield area by late morning. A coating to 2" is possible along the I-91 corridor while the east slopes of the Berkshires into Berkshire county could pick up 1-3". Highs tomorrow top out in the mid to upper 30s.
Our forecast is still a bit uncertain for much of the week, but we are tracking two systems-the first for late Tuesday and Wednesday and the second late next week. The first system doesn't look to bring us much wet weather, but a rain/snow mix may occur Wednesday and Thursday. The second system looks colder, but not with much recipe here either-however, some snow is possible with highs in the 30s.
Behind the second front much colder air moves in for Friday and into next weekend. Daytime highs will only rise into the upper 20s and lower 30s but with gusty winds Friday and Saturday we could see wind chills in the teens.
