A dry night tonight. Ian may bring us some rain to start October
SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WGGB/WSHM) - If you have plans this evening you will be just fine. Clouds will continue to increase but we will remain dry as lows tonight fall back into the lower and middle 40s.
Meanwhile, Ian made landfall as a Category 1 hurricane this afternoon near Georgetown, South Carolina bringing heavy rain, hurricane force winds and storm surge to the area north of Charleston to Myrtle Beach, SC.
As remnants of Ian try to move into southern New England, tomorrow will feature cloudy, cool conditions. We will likely see at least some rain from Ian, as High pressure to our north will fight the rain advancing from the south, so how much rain is still up in the air, however some rain is likely from late morning into the afternoon. The heaviest rain will line up across Connecticut and Rhode Island, but some steady rain will likely make it into greater Springfield. Franklin County may only see a shower or two and may even stay dry. It will be breezy and cool with highs near 60. Rain totals look to be less than 1/4″. (Less north, much more north)
With High Pressure building to our north the breeze will pick up on Sunday out of the Northeast with gusts to 30 mph. Sunday and Monday look to be mainly dry as High pressure suppresses moisture further south, but rain will be looming just off shore with leftover from Ian. For now we are looking dry, breezy and cool with maybe a bit of sunshine through lots of high and mid-level clouds. Temperatures will top off near 60 so it will remain cool.
