SPRINGFIELD, MA (WGGB/WSHM) - As the center of Tropical Storm Fay passes by to our west overnight, the heaviest rain should stay across New York State. However, a Flash Flood Watch continues for Berkshire County through Noon Saturday with 1-2 inches of rain possible. The Pioneer Valley will only see a few tenths of an inch.

Wind will stay a bit gusty overnight with some reaching 25-35mph at times. Sustained wind out of the east-southeast will hover in the 10-20mph range. Of course, wind may gust higher in any thunderstorms. Wind gusts should peak overnight as Fay passes by.

Fay moves out of New England in the morning Saturday, but we remain very humid and unsettled. Highs look to reach the middle or even upper 80s depending on sunshine and dew points remain in the low to middle 70s! Scattered showers and thunderstorms flare up in the afternoon and evening, with a few strong to severe storms possible. Isolated damaging wind gusts are the main threat along with a continued chance for flash flooding.

An upper level trough builds into New England Sunday, but our weather is looking mostly sunny and mainly rain-free. It will still be quite humid and very warm with highs nearing 90. A pop up shower or storm is possible in the afternoon and evening. Sunday looks breezy as well with some 20mph gusts.

Next week begins unsettled with showers and storms becoming more likely Monday afternoon and evening from an upper level low. Shower chances are lower Tuesday with only a few still possible. Humidity begins to lower Tuesday and Wednesday, finally giving us a little relief. We turn hot and more humid Wednesday to Friday with an increasing rain threat by the end of the week.
