SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WGGB/WSHM) - The cold front that brought the showers and thunderstorms this afternoon will be pushing to our east tonight so we will see the showers ending and skies gradually clearing out. Drier air will also move in as the winds shift to the west/northwest. Overnight lows will fall back into the lower and middle 50s.

The remainder of the Memorial Day weekend is looking great. Lower levels of humidity and warm temperatures are headed our way tomorrow along with plenty of sunshine highs will top out in the upper 70s to around 80° tomorrow afternoon.

Hotter weather is expected Memorial Day with highs in the upper 80s to around 90°, but humidity remains comfortable. Tuesday will be once again see temperatures climb into the upper 80s and even some lower 90s but it will also begin to feel more humid.

The long-range forecast features a possible backdoor cold front Wednesday, that could bring cooler, less humid air if it can reach western Mass. However, even if it does it should be short-lived as heat and humidity return Thursday. A front should bring showers and storms late Thursday, followed by drier, seasonable air for next weekend.
