Clouds have returned to western Mass and will stick around for a while. Tonight, we are more humid and overcast, which will help keep temperatures warm. We drop through the 70s this evening and into the lower and middle 60s overnight with a continued southerly breeze. An isolated shower, drizzle, fog & mist are possible through dawn.
Spotty showers and a few weak thunderstorms will be around Friday morning. We have a muggy, mild start to our day and it gets toasty for the afternoon! Friday won’t be a washout at all, however, we are stuck in a warm, humid and unsettled atmosphere, so pop up showers and a stray thunderstorm will be possible all day. Breaks of hazy sunshine should help bring high temps back to the middle 80s in the valley with dew points nearing 70-tropical! Some downpours and rumbles of thunder are a bit more likely Friday night before midnight, but nothing severe is expected.
Remnants of Alberto linger over New England Saturday, keeping our warm, humid air in place. A slow-moving cold front will be pushing southward during the day and should help to spark showers and a few weak thunderstorms as the day heats up. By the late afternoon, we will be cooling down and any showers should taper off as drier air moves in.
High pressure will build to our north Sunday, which will bring humidity way down as well as keep temperatures around 70 in the afternoon. We may see some veiled sun, but high clouds should stay persistent. Enjoy the comfortable temps, because cooler weather rolls in for the week to follow.
Next week will feature a developing upper level low that will drift from the Great Lakes to New England. This low will bring unseasonably cool temperatures with it, putting highs in the 50s and 60s early in the week and lows in the 40s. At the surface, a chilly east-northeast breeze will persist Sunday and Monday due low pressure passing off the coast to our south. Upper level waves will bring in showers Monday and Monday night and possibly again midweek. Temperatures should improve somewhat toward the end of the week.
