Rain continues tonight, then we go into a dry weather stretch | Weather
SPRINGFIELD, MA (WGGB/WSHM) — We’ve seen a rainy, raw Monday across western Mass with many picking up 1-2 inches of rain so far. Rain may still be heavy at times through midnight, then will taper off to lighter showers through sunrise.
Fog, drizzle and mist are also likely after midnight with temperatures falling into the lower 50s for most.
Low pressure passes to our south overnight and conditions will gradually improve Tuesday. There is a chance for showers in the morning, then we keep mostly cloudy skies in the afternoon. Light northeasterly breezes continue, which will keep temperatures cool across the region for another day.
Surface high pressure builds into New England from Wednesday to Friday, allowing for a nice stretch of weather. We will get more sunshine along with some scattered clouds. Humidity remains comfortable with dew points in the 50s, so our overnight lows will stay well above normal. Daytime highs will also trend warm thanks to a ridge over the Northeast.
Temperatures are trending closer to normal over the weekend as a cool northeast flow returns to New England. Chances for rain look slim with maybe a shower Sunday. It is looking like a good deal of cloud cover over the holiday weekend though.
