SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WGGB/WSHM) - An area of low pressure brought the heavy rain to the region during the overnight. Drier air will move in for the afternoon. The weekend is looking cooler and a bit unsettled though neither day will be a wash out.

Skies turn partly cloudy or even sunny for a time by mid to late morning! Temperatures warm into the 60s with a nice southwesterly breeze and the day looks mostly dry and nice. There is a low risk for a shower in the afternoon, but it would be hit or miss and short-lived.

A dip in the jet stream and mid-level low will move into New England over the weekend. This will bring a few disturbances through Saturday morning, likely producing scattered showers. A few downpours or a rumble of thunder can’t be ruled out. The afternoon looks a little better with partly to mostly cloudy skies and highs in the 50s.

Temperatures trend a bit cooler Sunday with a mix of clouds and sun. There’s a low risk for a shower, but many keep dry conditions with a gusty northwest breeze.

The weekend trough lifts out of New England Monday, allowing for a ridge to build back in. Temperatures are trending warmer through midweek with highs returning to the 60s Monday, then upper 60s to 70s Tuesday and Wednesday. A wobbling frontal boundary may bring more clouds in Tuesday and Wednesday with a spot shower here and there, but overall our weather early next week looks nice!
