Rain has Ended. Sunshine Returns for your Saturday

SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WGGB) — We saw some heavy rain through the area during the overnight and early morning hours this morning. At times rainfall rates in some areas exceeded an inch per hour. If you have any rainfall totals send them to us at weather@wggb.com. The good news is we will dry out as the rain has come to an end and all flood watches that were in effect have been dropped. Skies will start to clear out and most of the clouds should be gone later this morning with mostly sunny skies for the afternoon. Humidity levels will fall throughout the day too with warm temperatures and a nice breeze out of the west. Highs today will top out in the low to mid 70s.

Tonight we can expect mostly clear to partly cloudy skies. The winds will diminish and it will be cooler with lows tonight in the upper 30s and low 40s.

A cool pool of air aloft, (high in the sky) will swing through the northeast on Sunday destabilizing the air mass a bit in the afternoon. This means sunny skies will give way to building afternoon clouds. Just a few widely scattered pop-up sprinkles are possible with the best chance over our eastern hills. So, overall the weekend looks great and certainly much better than it did just a few days ago. Enjoy!
