Staying muggy with occasional showers through Friday | Weather
SPRINGFIELD, MA (WGGB/WSHM) — We missed out on the severe weather this evening, but did see a few thunderstorms with heavy rain. Tonight, we remain muggy and mild with lows in the 60s. Areas of fog are possible along with occasional showers and even a rumble of thunder through sunrise.
Weak high pressure builds to our north on Thursday, but the cold front from tonight will stall just to our south. So, skies look mainly cloudy and we keep a muggy feel Thursday, but we won’t see a washout and temperatures will be cooler. Highs end up in the lower to middle 70s with occasional showers throughout the day.
Low pressure east of the Bahamas may become a tropical depression late this week and is forecast to pass southeast of the Cape and Islands. This storm won’t bring much to western Mass other than clouds and possibly a few showers later Friday and a spot shower Saturday. Coastal areas will likely be brisk with showers. Muggy conditions continue through Saturday as well.
Skies will be clearing out for Sunday and lower humidity will return. Surface high pressure will bring in a northerly breeze Sunday and Monday, which may keep temperatures in the upper 70s, plus we will see sunny skies. Temperatures cool nicely at night, returning to the lower 50s Sunday and Monday nights. A warmer trend is on tap Tuesday and Wednesday with continued sunshine.
