Sunshine for Friday and Saturday, keeping an eye on Hermine


Skies continue to clear tonight and as high pressure digs in and temperatures and dew points will lower. Overnight lows fall into the lower 50s, so leave those windows open! There may be a little fog development toward morning, but many will have mostly clear conditions.

High pressure is in control Friday, so expect a mainly sunny day! We get a little taste of fall tomorrow with highs in the mid to upper 70s with dew points staying comfortable, in the lower to mid 50s. Beautiful!

Our focus shifts to Hermine for the weekend, which will start bringing in high clouds midday Saturday. We are still dry Saturday and fairly quiet with highs again in the mid 70s. Sunday and Monday we have the best chance for impacts from Hermine with mostly cloudy skies and occasional showers. Any showers will carry tropical moisture, so expect a soaking rain. It may become breezy, especially as you head closer to the beach.

The coast will have most of the effect from Hermine with continued rough seas, dangerous rip currents and gusty winds. They also have the best rain chances.

There is still a lot of question with Hermine and the impacts we will feel here in western Mass. Right now, our impacts look minimal with the potential for rain and a decent breeze. We will continue to update you on the storm as it gets closer. Expect warmer temperatures by midweek!
