SPRINGFIELD, MA (WGGB/WSHM) - We saw a mild day yesterday blustery and cooler conditions are on the way to close out the work week but at least we will also see a good amount of sunshine this afternoon.
Today will be a blustery day with northwesterly wind gusts up to 20-30mph. Temperatures will be much cooler with highs back to the 30s to around 40, but we will see plenty of sunshine in the valley thanks to high pressure. The Berkshires should keep more clouds overall with a chance for a snow shower or flurries.
Mainly dry weather is on tap this weekend, though a weak upper level disturbance will move through Saturday with a low risk for a flurry or sprinkle. Temperatures both Saturday and Sunday will stay near normal with highs in the upper 30s to low 40s with lighter breezes.
As our upper level pattern shifts, our weather will start turning a bit more dramatic for next week. Two storm systems will be affecting southern New England, bringing a wide range of weather to our area. The storm system for Monday looks to bring a strong wind threat to our area along with rain showers and unseasonably warm temperatures. Some snow showers are possible in the Berkshires Monday night as colder air dives back in. Our next storm arrives Wednesday with potentially enough cold air in place to allow for accumulating snow or a wintry mix at least before a change to rain.
