Another cold night tonight. A bright and mild end to the weekend
SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WGGB/WSHM) - After a bight, pleasant afternoon another cold night is on the way thanks to clear skies and calm winds. Areas of frost are likely overnight as temperatures tumble into the middle 20s. It will be a frosty start again tomorrow but a southerly flow will bring us another mild day with temperatures in the lower 60s under mostly sunny skies.
Looking at our long-term forecast, we are trending on the drier side, as after Tuesday, there really is no notable rain in the forecast. We are also trending quite a bit warmer, as around mid-week we can reach highs in the upper 60′s, even taking a run at 70 by late next week. keep in mind our average high for this time of year is about 57, so 10+ degrees above normal. This is caused by a strong ridge building into the area, lifting the Jetstream well to our north.
Your forecast for Halloween, we are trending a bit drier, and it now looks like showers will hold off until the overnight hours into Tuesday morning. High pressure will move offshore, and a low-pressure system moves in bringing showers and warmer more moist air. Clear skies for Saturday, Sunday. A mix of sun and clouds comes in for Monday morning, but again, we are still looking dry, with showers holding off until around 9 or 10pm. Showers look to linger into Tuesday morning, with mostly cloudy skies throughout the day. We then turn mild for the rest of the week, sitting comfortably in the 60′s, even nearing 70 in some case. We turn dry with the next chance for rain not util Sunday night into Monday of next week.
