Downpours end this morning; humidity and spotty shower linger | Weather
SPRINGFIELD, MA (WGGB/WSHM) — We missed out on the severe weather yesterday, but we continue to deal with a few downpours early this morning so you’ll need your umbrella as you head out the door.
Weak high pressure builds to our north today, as the cold front stalls to our south. So, it will remain mainly cloudy with a muggy feel, but we won’t see a washout and temperatures will be cooler. Highs end up in the lower to middle 70s with occasional showers throughout the day. Most of the day it will not be raining.
Low pressure east of the Bahamas may become a tropical depression or storm late Friday into Saturday and will likely pass southeast of the Cape and Islands. This storm won’t bring much to western Mass other than clouds and possibly a few showers later Friday and a spot shower Saturday. Coastal areas will likely be brisk with showers. Muggy conditions continue through Saturday as well.
Skies will be clearing out for Sunday and lower humidity will return. Surface high pressure will bring in a northerly breeze Sunday and Monday, which may keep temperatures in the upper 70s, plus we will see sunny skies. Temperatures cool nicely at night, returning to the lower 50s Sunday and Monday nights. A warmer trend is on tap Tuesday and Wednesday with continued sunshine.
