SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WGGB/WSHM) - Rain moved through during the overnight but that rain is moving out and drier air will work in as the day goes on. A mild day is on tap before temperatures begin to fall heading through the weekend and into early next week.

Showers are moving out this morning, though patchy clouds and fog are still around. A drying breeze out of the west will help to lift the fog and skies look to turn partly cloudy for a time. The afternoon looks mild with highs in the 50s to lower 60s with a healthy west wind. Some weak upper level energy may bring a shower or two to the hills later in the day.

Our weekend begins dry, but clouds increase quickly Saturday and an approaching front will bring scattered showers by the afternoon and evening. A few showers could contain small hail or graupel. We continue to stay in a pattern that is favorable for cooler/unsettled weather and we will see just that over the next several days.

A spot shower is possible Sunday, otherwise expect a good deal of clouds and seasonably cool temperatures. An Arctic front comes through Sunday night and ushers in a shot of very cold air along with gusty northwest wind. Wind chills Monday morning may be in the single digits and only reach teens and 20s in the afternoon! Flurries are possible, but overall we look dry through Tuesday. Temperatures moderate mid to late week.
