3 Day Planner

SPRINGFIELD, MA (WGGB/WSHM) – A breezy, chilly, but bright end to the week here in western Mass. Be ready for a very cold night ahead too. Winds will continue to lighten this evening and wind becomes light to calm after midnight. With high pressure in control, we will keep a clear sky into the overnight hours, setting the stage for a fast dip in temperatures. Overnight lows will fall into the single digits and lower teens for many by Saturday morning!

Our weekend is looking dry and cold with a frigid start Saturday morning! Even with a sunny sky Saturday, afternoon temperatures only make it into the 20s and low 30s with a continued northwest breeze. An upper level disturbance will swing through Saturday evening with some scattered clouds and a slight risk for some flurries. Overall, our air remains very dry and very cold with flurries being short-lived and temps returning to the teens overnight.

A trough remains in place over the Northeast, keeping us unseasonably cold, but away from the storm track through early next week. A winter storm will continue to impact the South this weekend and move into the Carolinas and Virginia through Monday. The storm will follow the jet stream and exit the Mid-Atlantic coast early next week, sparing New England any wet weather.

Dry, sunny, cold conditions continue from Sunday to Wednesday with temps moderating slightly Sunday and Monday, then falling back down Tuesday and Wednesday behind a dry cold front passage. The end of the week looks to warm up a bit with highs potentially returning to the 40s by Friday.

  • This Afternoon: Mostly sunny, breezy & cold. Highs: 27-35
  • Tonight: Clear and frigid. Lows: 8-14
  • Saturday: Sunny and cold. Highs: 24-30
