SPRINGFIELD, MA (WGGB/WSHM) -- Our dry weather will continue today and tomorrow before a coastal area of low pressure brings rain to the region Thursday into Friday
It's a cold, but dry start this with temperatures in the teens and 20s but they will rise quickly as skies begin sunny. Temperatures climb back into the lower and middle 40s in the afternoon and northwest breezes will again pick up. Some clouds will bubble up this afternoon and there is just the slight chance for an isolated sprinkle or flurry but many will remain dry. Skies will clear out this evening and another cold night is on the way as lows drop back into the upper teens and lower 20s.
The start to spring in New England will be pleasant with temperatures around and slightly above normal Wednesday. We will see a mainly sunny day with high pressure in control. It will be breezy with wind out of the south. Clouds build Wednesday night ahead of our next storm system.
We will be tracking two waves of energy for the end of the week-one with the northern jet and another with the southern jet. At the least, rain showers are looking likely Thursday as the northern system moves through and even some early morning snowflakes are possible with little to no accumulation expected. A coastal low looks to develop and swing just east of southern New England Thursday night into Friday morning. This could bring some heavier rain our way with some mixing possible, but it’s too early to call that play just yet. Right now, any winter weather chances are slim to none.
We do turn windy as the coastal low departs on Friday. A few lingering rain or snow showers are possible Friday morning, then we dry out and turn colder. Temperatures will fall back below normal Friday night and Saturday with a gusty breeze lingering to start the weekend. Dry weather continues through Sunday with a nice rebound in temperatures expected.
