SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WGGB/WSHM) - After a mild afternoon which saw temperatures climb into the 50s in portions of western Mass a cold front will bring in more seasonable air for the weekend. Skies will remain mostly cloudy tonight and it will remain breezy overnight as well. A colder night is on the way as lows fall back into the upper 20s and lower 30s.

This weekend is looking dry and seasonably mild with highs in the lower to middle 30s Saturday and in the upper 30s to around 40 on Sunday. Saturday will also feature mostly cloudy skies. While we will see more sunshine on Sunday, we also have to battle clouds from passing low pressure systems off the coast. Rain and snow may impact the Cape and Islands into SE Mass late Saturday night and early Sunday from one of these storms. The lows will also keep us under a healthy northerly breeze with gusts to 20mph both days. Wind lightens for MLK Day and we should be a touch milder and sunny.

After a quiet end to the holiday weekend, our weather gets more unsettled with a good deal of clouds through the end of the week. Rain chances are low for Tuesday with a passing cold front, then we may have a better shot at some rain and/or a wintry mix late in the week.
