Mostly cloudy and cold tonight. Some rain/snow showers tomorrow
SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WGGB/WSHM) - The area of low pressure that brought the light snow to the region today will move out tonight. Another weak system will bring some rain and snow showers tomorrow with milder temperatures. A plowable snowfall still looks likely with our next system for Monday night into Tuesday.
Cold temperatures on the way tonight with lows in the middle to upper teens. Snow will come to an end this evening but we will hang onto mostly cloudy skies Temperatures turn milder Sunday as wind shifts to the southwest. Temps will be closer to 40 which is close to average. A Clipper system passes to our north and drags a cold front through in the afternoon with some scattered rain and snow showers. Wind shifts back to the northwest Sunday evening, drying things out.
Monday will be a quiet weather day as the kiddos head back to school. We begin cold and dry with some early sunshine, but clouds will increase throughout the day ahead of our next storm. Low pressure moves across the US over the weekend and approaches the Great Lakes Monday. A second low will form off the mid-Atlantic coast Monday evening and pass just south of Nantucket. Snow is likely Monday night and may be heavy through Tuesday morning. Snow may continue Tuesday with a chance for some valley mixing mid-day. Overall, the probabilities for 3 or more inches of snow are high and 6 or more moderate for our area. Looking like the plows will be out for this one!
Behind this storm system, we remain in an unsettled weather pattern. Wednesday looks dry, but some scattered showers of rain and snow are possible Thursday and Friday. There’s potential for a stronger storm Friday night into Saturday, but that is still very uncertain at this point.
