A much milder day here in western Mass with high temperatures only making it into the middle 70s for most! High pressure is in control for us, but it’s position to our northeast, is bringing in a cooler, easterly wind. East breezes also help to keep clouds around and we have some clouds from a stalled front to our south as well.We are looking dry tonight with mostly cloudy skies turning partly cloudy overnight. Temperatures will cool into the middle and upper 50s with the help of dry air. Saturday will start dry with some patchy clouds, then more sunshine is expected later in the day. Temperature should make it back to around 80 in the afternoon with a light southeast breeze. A near perfect start to September and meteorological fall!As high pressure continues move away from the Northeast, which will allow our temperatures and dew points to increase. Sunday starts comfortable, but dew points will rise throughout the day. Some showers are possible Sunday afternoon and evening, but they look hit or miss. Temperatures get back to the middle 80s under a partly cloudy sky.Hot and humid weather continues for Labor Day with highs approaching 90 and dew points nearing 70. Tuesday will be a scorcher as everyone heads back to work and school. Heat Advisories may be issued as temps hit lower 90s and high humidity will make it feel more like 95-100. A cold front to our north looks to creep southward through midweek, bringing an increased chance for showers and thunderstorms. Not seeing great rain chances right now, but even the clouds should bring some heat relief. Showers and storms are more likely late in the week as a stronger front arrives.
