Isolated shower/storm early; weekend split on the way | Weather


SPRINGFIELD, MA (WGGB/WSHM) – While we are dealing with a few showers and even an isolated thunderstorm this afternoon they will not be sticking around as they come to an end this evening. The upcoming weekend is looking like a 50/50 split with Saturday being the better day for outdoor plans. 

Skies will clear later this evening giving way to fair, moon-lit skies tonight. It will be cool and comfortable with lows in the 50’s. Tonight full “Thunder moon” will rise at 8:40 and should be a great showing as clouds clear out. 

Tomorrow looks beautiful with a cool start and a warm, dry afternoon. Highs will reach into the lower 80’s with low levels of humidity. A few clouds will mix in during the afternoon, but sunshine will prevail. 

Clouds will increase tomorrow night as Low pressure moves in from the Great Lakes. It will be milder and more humid with lows in the 60’s. A warm front will bring a period of rain with downpours and some thunder Sunday morning. It will turn more humid as the front moves through. The rain will end, but clouds will linger. We’ll see a little sun around midday followed by mid to late afternoon and evening thunderstorms with the arrival of a cold front. A few storms could be severe with damaging wind gusts, heavy rain, lightning and large hail.  The Storm Prediction Center places western Mass. under a “Marginal” risk for severe weather. 1 on their scale from 1 to 5 for severe weather. 

The front looks to keep moving, so we should dry out for the start of the week. Monday and Tuesday look to feature a fair amount of sunshine with warm temperatures and marginal levels of humidity. Highs in the mid to upper 80’s with dew points in the 60’s. It may turn more unsettled for the middle of next week as rain and storm chances go up on Wednesday.
