SPRINGFIELD, MA (WGGB/WSHM) - It's going to feel a bit like fall this weekend with temperatures running slightly below normal for this time of year. Outdoor plans look fine both today and tomorrow.
Saturday will be a pleasant weather day with temperatures topping out in the middle to upper 70s. We will see sunshine mixing with clouds and dew points dip into the 40s, which is almost fall-like! High pressure will move eastward across southern Canada, keeping everyone in New England dry and pleasant. Some clouds will linger into tonight and it will be another cool night as lows fall back into the middle 50s.
An east-northeast breeze coming off the Atlantic will continue to bring cooler than normal temperatures to New England Sunday and Monday. Here in western Mass, our high temperatures look to climb into the lower and middle 70s both days with a mix of sun and patchy clouds. Along the eastern shore, temperatures may not get out of the 60s! Also, for those headed to the beach, spotty rain showers will be possible from the onshore flow.
Temperatures get chilly Sunday night into Monday morning as many fall into the middle and upper 40s under a mostly clear sky! Expect a chill in the air Monday morning as the kiddos head back to school! The start of the work week looks quiet and comfortable with slightly warmer temperatures by Tuesday, but we keep the low humidity. Dew points climb a bit Wednesday and much more for Thursday as a cold front approaches from the west. Showers are possible Wednesday evening and Thursday from the front, but we may need to eye a system off the coast as well. Low pressure off the coast of Florida may develop into our next tropical system.
