A Cold Rain Even Some Wintry Weather for Some

SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WGGB) - 

It will continue to be a mainly cloudy, cool afternoon. A few sprinkles and showers will move through but most of the afternoon will remain dry.  A northerly breeze will help keep the chill in the air. Temperatures will top off in the low to mid 50′s in the valley but stay stuck in the 40′s across the hill towns.

Showers will become more widespread overnight while at the same time cool air continues drain in. This could lead to an icy mix across the hill towns and Berkshires. In fact, The National Weather Service has posted A Winter Weather Advisory for Berkshire County from 10 pm this evening through noon tomorrow. Most of us will see just plain rain but across the higher terrain there could be a few icy spots late tonight into tomorrow morning.

The main area of low pressure will continue to spin into Canada but a secondary low pressure system will develop off the New Jersey coast. This storm will slide south of New England during the day tomorrow.  This will bring in the heavy precipitation while at the same time lock in the cold air.

Rain will be heavy at times tomorrow. It will stay chilly too with temperatures only near 40, along with a gusty breeze. There will continue to be  few snowflakes or ice pellets mixing in across the higher terrain with accumulating snow likely across New Hampshire & Maine.  A solid inch of rain is likely for most of us during the day tomorrow. The heaviest rain will fall from 9 pm to 5 pm. There could be some minor flooding on roads ways and areas of poor drainage.

The rain will wind down to showers tomorrow evening, followed by a cool but fairly bright weekend.  Temperatures over the weekend will top off mainly in the 50′s, along with a cool breeze. There could be a late day shower on Saturday with a few snowflakes Saturday night. Sunday is looking breezy and cool with some sun.

Have a great day!
