SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WGGB/WSHM) - A cold night is on the way tonight with a few clouds around but at least it is going to be dry. Lows tonight will fall back into the lower and middle 20s.

Dry, seasonable weather returns to our area through Wednesday of next week. A persistent west-northwesterly flow will bring brisk or breezy conditions Sunday and Monday with the threat for some high terrain flurries or snow showers, but the valley should remain dry. Lighter wind returns Tuesday and Wednesday, then our next storm system looks to approach Thursday-Friday.

Still too far out for details and there’s a lot of long-range model spread on what we get. We do feel like this will be a powerful nor’easter that will bring a lot of precipitation and wind to southern New England, but specific track and precipitation type will be uncertain until early next week. There is a chance for this system to bring the area a white Christmas, but it also could bring a soaking rain to the region. Details will unfold as the we head through next week so make sure to keep an eye on the forecast.

Dry, cold air should follow for Christmas weekend.
