SPRINGFIELD, MA (WGGB/WSHM) — After yesterdays snow storm that brought between 4-8″ for Western Mass, high pressure slides into the region today bringing lots of sunshine and clear skies. Sunrise temperatures hovered around 10 degrees this morning as the weekend starts on the brisk side. Wind starts calm but will pick up to a slight breeze, keeping wind chills in the 20s.
Sunday will be slightly warmer as temperatures near 40 with winds shifting from a more southerly flow. An Arctic cold front will swing into New England Sunday afternoon. Ahead of the front, a healthy breeze builds and as the front comes through, more clouds roll in along with a few snow showers and maybe some squalls for the Berkshires. Wind shifts northwest and gusts could reach 20-40mph. Colder air dives in with the front and wind chills likely fall below 0 for Monday morning!
Monday will be clear and frigid across western Mass with highs in the lower to middle 20s. The good news is temperatures moderate fairly quick following Monday, but we do remain near and below normal for the first few days of March. A few fronts look to come through during the week, but not much wet weather is expected.
