SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WGGB/WSHM) - It’s been another mild afternoon as temperatures climbed into the middle and upper 60s. Another mild day is on tap tomorrow, though it will be a few degrees cooler with shower chances returning tomorrow afternoon.

Tonight will be cool with a bit of a breeze. Clouds will increase late on, but we should stay dry. Temperatures will fall into the 40′s.

Temperatures will reach back into the lower 60′s tomorrow, but the weekend begins with more clouds. A cold front moving in from the northwest will keep skies cloudy and bring increasing chances for rain. We may see a morning shower, but the bulk of the rain will move in during the mid to late afternoon and evening. We may pick up about 1/2″ of rain with even a rumble of thunder.

Dry, chilly air dives in behind the front for Easter Sunday. By sunrise, temperatures should be in the 30s with partly cloudy skies and we keep a mix of sun and clouds throughout the day. Temperatures only reach into the lower 50s in the valley and 40′s in the hills along with a gusty northwest breeze adding a chill. A bundle up kind of day.

High pressure builds Sunday night and Monday, giving us a dry start to the week. Clouds gradually increase ahead of our next round of wet weather. While details for Tuesday are still fuzzy, it is looking likely that we will see a soaking rain in southern New England. There also a low risk for high elevation snow. Our weather stays breezy, dry and seasonable mid-week.
