SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WGGB/WSHM) - After a mild day today a chilly night is on the way with temperatures falling back into the lower and middle 30s. Skies will remain mostly cloudy and there is the chance for a spot sprinkle or two this evening as a weak disturbance moves through the region. The best chance to see a sprinkle will be in Berkshire county.

We stay mainly dry this weekend too, but we turn much colder for Sunday! Tomorrow looks decent with quite a bit sunshine with a healthy breeze out of the west-northwest. Temperatures will be a bit cooler, seasonable with highs in the 40s to around 50 in the lower valley, but colder air builds tomorrow night with the passage of a second cold front. Sunday will be wind and cold. Wind gusts from the northwest as strong as 30-40mph at times and with highs only in the 30′s it will feel like it’s in the teens and 20′s. Dress warm if you are heading to the Parade, layer up!

Sunday’s cold air retreats quickly. After a cold start on Monday temperatures return to near 50 with mostly sunny skies and lighter breezes for the start of spring. (Spring equinox takes place Monday. March 20th at 5:36pm) Mild, dry conditions with lots of sunshine should last through Wednesday with highs in the low to mid 50′s. The end of the week may become unsettled with rain changes increasing.
