SPRINGFIELD, MA (WGGB/WSHM) -- This afternoon will feature varying amounts of clouds, mixed with some sunshine. Temperatures will reach into the middle 60's. A weakening front may lead to a shower or two this evening. 

As the front weakens it will stall to our west and will never make it through western Mass, but it will keep tomorrow mostly cloudy, and could bring us a few additional spotty showers. Most of the day will be dry with highs in the middle to upper 60's. 

A southerly flow will increase for the middle of the week helping to boost temperatures further above normal. (Normal high is 61) We will also see increasing amount of sunshine. Readings will average 5-15 degrees above normal with Thursday being the warmest day of the week as highs push into the low to middle 70's. 

It looks as though temperatures stay above normal through the start of the weekend as the jet stream rides to our north, above a ridge across the eastern U.S. A cold front will likely drop down at some point over the weekend, bringing us a few showers with cooler air to follow.  The weekend will likely start mild then finish more seasonable for late October. 

Tropical Storm Epsilon has formed way out in the Atlantic. Epsilon is forecast to become a hurricane over the next couple of days. The storm will approach Bermuda by the weekend. The National Hurricane Center places Bermuda in the storms cone of uncertainty. The storm will likely move north then out-to-sea after nearing Bermuda, but tons of uncertainty remains.
