Rain moving out; drier afternoon as seasonable temperatures return | Weather
SPRINGFIELD, MA (WGGB/WSHM) — A slow-moving cold front continues to creep through western Mass with showers and some heavy downpours. The rain will taper off before noon as the conveyer belt of rain shifts east.
Once the front moves through conditions will improve. We will see some developing sunshine later this afternoon along with dew points falling into the 50’s. Highs will top off in the lower 70’s. It will be a nice late afternoon and 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 more fall-like 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 we should stay dry.
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. Temps will top off near 70 and a Northwesterly breeze will keep it feeling cool. The cool, fall weather will stick around into early next week wit a reinforcing shot for cool air for the middle and later half of the week as we close out September. A few disturbances will rotate through in this pattern, bringing scattered clouds and a few isolated showers Monday and Tuesday. (Normal high 70)
