SPRINGFIELD, MA (WGGB/WSHM) - It's a cool, refreshing start this morning and today is looking like a drier day with sunshine and only a slight chance for a shower. 

The upper level low that has brought several days of soaking rains and thunderstorms finally exits southern New England today. This will bring us a drier weather day with more sunshine on tap. Temperatures look to get back to the middle and upper 80s with light wind and moderate humidity. It will be a great pool day for the kids! 

Even with the exit of the upper low, we will be unsettled tomorrow as a weak backdoor cold front moves through New England.  While today looks mainly dry with only a low risk for a pop up shower or storm, wet weather chances increase again tomorrow.

Scattered showers and thunderstorms are likely tomorrow with this passing front and we return to seasonable temperatures and high humidity-similar to the last 3 days. High pressure will build Saturday, keeping July 4th fairly nice with slightly lower dew points, seasonable temps and good sunshine!

After a nice Independence Day, Sunday isn’t looking too bad either. We should see a slightly higher rain chance later in the day and it will be a bit hotter and more humid. Our pattern next week will look similar with hotter temperatures, high humidity and a daily threat for showers and storms. A heat wave is looking possible.
