SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WGGB/WSHM) - High pressure continues to hang tough across New England, keeping skies mostly clear through dawn and temperatures cold-with lows hitting upper single digits in the Berkshires to lower teens in the valley.

After a cold morning, temperatures climb back to near normal for the afternoon Saturday. High pressure moving off to the east will bring in a light southwesterly breeze that will help bring temperatures back up. High clouds will be around most of the day and should gradually thicken up into the evening. A warm front will approach Saturday night with a few showers that may be a mix of rain, but it will be short-lived. Many stay above freezing Saturday night and temperatures continue to climb Sunday.

Unseasonably mild, breezy and damp Sunday as we spend most of the day ahead of a cold front. The morning begins cloudy and chilly with a chance for showers, then a period of rain swings through mid-day. Our weather dries out a bit for the afternoon along with gusty breezes out of the Southwest and temperatures soar into the 50s to near 60! A shower is possible Sunday evening with a passing cold front, but overall we look dry and a bit cooler moving into Monday morning.

Our week begins mild Monday morning with lows in the 40s. Clouds increase early and rain arrives with another wave of low pressure by the afternoon. Rain may fall heavy at times Monday evening and night. Colder air works in behind a cold front, which could allow for some mixing in the high elevations before precipitation ends early Tuesday morning.

Overall, our weather pattern remains seasonably mild and unsettled much of the week. After Monday’s rain, another batch of showers may come through later in the week. Lots of clouds are expected with the nicest and sunniest days looking to be Tuesday and Wednesday.
