SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WGGB/WSHM) - After a beautiful summer afternoon a cool night is on the way but our dry weather pattern will be sticking around through the weekend.

Tonight will be mainly clear and cool with lows falling into the lower 50′s. You can shut the A.Cs and fans off and open up the windows!

Weak energy will spin off shore over the weekend and may kick up a few clouds tomorrow, but we’ll still see quite a bit of sunshine with dry, refreshing conditions. The Cape may receive a few showers tomorrow, closer to low pressure off shore. Sunday is looking nice too with dry, comfortable conditions. Highs over the weekend will top off in the upper 70′s to near 80 while dew points stay in the 40′s and 50′s.

We may pick up some beneficial rains next week as a surface Low and upper level energy spin across the Northeast. This will keep it on the cooler side as well. Rain chances go up late Monday through Wednesday, but still there are still lots of questions as to whether this system will materialize. Stay tuned, we need the rain. Western Mass remains under a moderate drought with parts of eastern Mass. in extreme drought. Drought Monitor Categories: 1. Dry 2. Moderate 3. Severe 4. Extreme 5. Exceptional
