Rain moves out, drier, more comfortable afternoon | Weather
SPRINGFIELD, MA (WGGB/WSHM) — A Flash Flood Watch remains in effect for Hampden, Hampshire, Franklin and Berkshire Counties until Noon.
A slow-moving cold front continues to creep through western Mass with heavy downpours and some thunder. The rain will taper off before noon as the conveyer belt of rain shifts east.
The main concern continues to be the potential for flash flooding. A strong to severe thunderstorm still can’t be ruled out through noon time, especially east of I91.
Once we get behind the cold front, our weather will begin improving, this afternoon. We will see some developing sunshine with dew points falling into the 50’s. It will be a nice evening for The Big E, but you will need the jacket. Tonight will be much cooler and drier with lows down into the 50’s.
Tomorrow will be much drier and more comfortable in western Mass, but farther east may take some time to dry out as the front slowly moves off the coast. We will see quite a bit sunshine in western Mass with more clouds lingering out East. In fact clouds and showers will try to back in on us tomorrow evening into tomorrow night. Periods of rain will line up across eastern New England with maybe a few showers for us tomorrow night, but we are not expecting much.
An upper level trough will swing through New England with a shot of cooler, drier air and will finally push the front and low pressure out to sea. This will bring a mix of sun and clouds to the area on Sunday. Dew points return to a refreshing level and temperatures hover close to normal Sunday and into early next week with some cooler air mid-week. A few disturbances will rotate through in this pattern, bringing scattered clouds and a few isolated showers Monday and Tuesday. (Normal high 70)
