It's been a spectacular afternoon for the 4th of July. With lots of sunshine, warm temperatures and comfortable levels of humidity, western Mass . Tomorrow is looking just as nice before more humid air returns late week along with the chance for showers. Potentially another top 10 weather day for the year!
Behind a cold front that pushed through the area yesterday, a drier air mass has moved in, allowing for low humidity and warm temps. High temperatures today topped off in the middle 80s.
If you are heading to the fireworks displays this evening, the weather will cooperate. Skies will remain mostly clear with temperatures dropping back into the upper 60s around 9pm. Overnight lows will fall back into the middle 50s. Give the air conditioner a break and let the cool air filter in. It will feel very refreshing!
High pressure will build directly over southern New England for Wednesday, bringing another sunny and warm day with highs in the mid to low 80s.
Our pattern begins to shift by Thursday as a few upper level disturbances head our way. An isolated shower or thunderstorm is possible Thursday, but the best chances of wet weather arrive Friday and Saturday. A strong low pressure system will track through the Mississippi River Valley, into the Mid-Atlantic, and towards New England. The exact track of this low will determine how much rain western Mass receives. The forecast will be fine-tuned as Friday approaches, so enjoy the bright skies over the next few days!
Saturday sees improving conditions into the afternoon as the morning showers depart. Sunday is looking like a quiet weather day.
