SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WGGB/WSHM) - It was a beautiful afternoon with lots of sunshine and temperatures topping out in the upper 60s and lower 70s. Skies will remain clear tonight and combined with light winds, another chilly night is on the way as lows fall into the upper 30s and lower 40s.

Another dry stretch of weather is underway and will last through most of next week! Temperatures warm-up this weekend thanks to high pressure at the surface and in the upper levels of the atmosphere. The upper level ridge really brings in the warmth with highs in the 70s Saturday and lower to middle 80s Sunday and near 80 Monday. The surface high will keep things dry, comfortable and sunny with nice cool-downs at night. Breezes also remain fairly light.

Not much changes next week, though Tuesday and Wednesday may end up slightly cooler with a bit more cloud cover thanks to an easterly wind flow. Warmer temps return later in the week and there are some hints at shower and thunderstorm chances.
