Scattered storms possible this evening | Weather


SPRINGFIELD, MA (WGGB/WSHM): A Severe Thunderstorm Watch is in effect for all of western Mass through 10pm…

A cold front moving through New England is sparking scattered thunderstorms this afternoon and evening, some of which are severe with damaging wind gusts to 60mph and small hail. These storms continue through 8-10pm, then spotty showers or a weaker storm may linger past midnight.

Behind the cold front, cooler, drier air moves in overnight and temperatures drop into the lower and middle 60s. A few showers may linger Wednesday morning along with patchy clouds and some mugginess, but our weather should improve throughout the day. Temperatures Wednesday afternoon should hit middle and upper 70s with a mix of clouds and sun and a nice northerly breeze.

A frontal boundary to our southwest will lift northeast Thursday, bringing in more clouds and higher humidity. Scattered showers and a few thunderstorms are possible Thursday afternoon through early Friday morning as a cold front sweeps through.

Our weather should improve quickly Friday with only a slight risk for a morning shower. Skies turn mostly sunny and we get a gusty northwest breeze to dry things out. Temperatures may get quite cool Friday night thanks to building high pressure and some spotty upper 40s may be felt Saturday morning! The weekend starts mild and dry with sunshine and 70s Saturday.

Yet another front approaches Sunday, increasing clouds and humidity. Much of the day looks dry for now, but scattered showers and thunderstorms are possible later in the day and night as the front moves through. We get another shot of dry, comfortable and seasonably cool air early next week.
