SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WGGB/WSHM) - We are in the midst of a beautiful weekend! Today will be warm, but dry with highs reaching into the lower 80′s, but with dew points in the 40′s and 50′s, making for a comfortable, pleasant afternoon. High pressure will supply us with plenty of sunshine with only a few decorative clouds mixing in from time to time.

It will be clear and cool again tonight with temperatures falling back into the lower 50′s. The start of the week looks nice, both tomorrow and Tuesday with highs near 80 along with dew points in the 50′s. We will see a few clouds tomorrow afternoon with the chance of a spot shower, but that is about it.

We still have the potential for beneficial rains the middle of the week, as a surface low and upper level energy spin across the Northeast. But there are still lots of questions as to whether this system will materialize. The models are still split with some bringing a soaking rain to the region while others want to bring very little, if any rain. Stay tuned, we certainly 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
