SPRINGFIELD, MA (WGGB/WSHM) - It's a much milder start this morning and today will be a bit unsettled with a cold front to our west, but it is not looking like a washout by any means We will see morning clouds, then partly cloudy skies this afternoon with a chance for a few showers and an isolated thunderstorm.

Storm chances look greatest across CT with showers more likely for us, but it’s still something to keep an eye out for. Right now the bulk of the severe activity looks to stay south from New York City to Washington D.C. Expect humidity to increase throughout the day with dew points getting into the lower 60s.

Any wet weather exits early this evening and we get some clearing overnight and sunshine for tomorrow with high pressure in charge. It will be a warm day with highs climbing into the middle 80s, but dew points stay in the 50s, which will keep things comfortable; a nice breeze will help too.

Temperatures may get even warmer Friday with highs reaching into the upper 80s for many. Humidity will increase throughout the day too as a cold front nears and a southwesterly flow increases.

Friday evening will be warm and very muggy with a chance for an isolated shower or thunderstorm. A cold front will finally come across western Mass sometime Saturday. There is a risk of severe thunderstorms across southern New England-something to watch.

We dry out Saturday night and turn cooler and dry Sunday with highs back to the 70s. Sunday will be much cooler and drier. The day looks nice, but there's a chance for an isolated afternoon shower as some energy moves through the atmosphere, behind our cold front. 

The start of next week looks to be dry and comfortable with seasonable temperatures and low levels of humidity.
