SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WGGB/WSHM) - After seeing some sunshine this afternoon skies will become mostly cloudy tonight. A mild and muggy night is on the way with lows falling back into the lower and middle 60s.

Our weather pattern will shift over the weekend and we go into a stretch of hotter, more humid weather that looks to last for the next several days. Sunday and Monday become humid and unsettled as our next weather system approaches. Sunday should be mostly rain-free with good sun and highs nearing 90. Later in the day a shower or thunderstorm is possible.

Any outdoor plans such as the beach, boating, pool still gets the green light for yet another weekend, but just keep in mind it will not be as sunny and there could be a pop downpour.

Our next system approaches Monday. It will be a warm, very humid day and low pressure will move into New England with a batch of showers and thunderstorms by Monday afternoon and evening. Heavy rain is looking possible and the biggest concern for now-though a few strong or severe storms can’t be ruled out either. A marginal risk has been issued for Monday (level 1/5) for parts of the area.

Hot weather and sunshine take over Tuesday with highs around 90, then mid 90s are possible Wednesday. With high humidity likely, Wednesday could get dangerously hot. These high heat indices may continue into Thursday, then some late-day thunderstorms are possible. Humidity may lower a bit Friday into Saturday, but 90s could continue.
