SPRINGFIELD, MA (WGGB/WSHM) - This afternoon will be sunny and warm! It will be a nice summer-like day with temperatures reaching into the mid to upper 80's. Although it will be warm, it will not be too humid with dew points in the 50's. There will be a nice breeze to add some comfort as well. High clouds will increase later in the afternoon and evening ahead of a warm front.
Clouds thicken tonight, but you should be able to make out the full moon just after sunset. A few showers are possible overnight into tomorrow morning, then skies turn partly cloudy. Tomorrow looks warm and humid with highs in the middle to possible upper 80s with dew points in the 60s. A mid-summer feel will be in the air for sure.
A pop up shower or thunderstorm is possible Friday throughout the afternoon, but it’s a low risk at this point. A better chance for showers and storms will come with the cold front Saturday morning. The timing of the front will determine our severe risk… morning we look ok, but if it holds off until the afternoon, severe weather is more likely here.
An upper level trough moves over New England Sunday, bringing in cooler temperatures with highs back to the 70s. A shower can’t be ruled out and patchy clouds will mix with sun. We remain seasonable into early next week with highs in the 70s to near 80 by Tuesday. Skies look mainly clear with a few fair-weather clouds and low humidity thanks to surface high pressure. We turn more unsettled mid-week.
