Severe Weather Threat Moves Out, Comfy Air Moves In
SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WGGB) — Another round of damage from severe weather occurred today in western Massachusetts with wind damage mainly in parts of Franklin and Berkshire County. And rain totals in the Pittsfield area nearly reached 4″ – this after 1-2″ in the same area yesterday! The day started with the first confirmed Massachusetts tornado of the year in Revere where an EF-2 twister caused extensive damage along a two mile long path.
The threat for any additional storms this evening is over as we find ourselves on the drier, more stable side of a cool front that crossed through. Skies will clear out overnight as we cool off and enjoy some much needed drying out. By morning temperatures will be down into the 50s.
Tomorrow will be mostly sunny with much lower levels of humidity. Highs will only make it into the upper 70s to near 80 degrees but the dew points will be down into the 50s.
The nice weather should stick around for the most part through late week with seasonable highs in the lower 80s and overnight lows in the 50s. A daily shower or storm is possible each afternoon Wednesday through Saturday but most of each day will be dry with morning sunshine and afternoon building clouds leading to those possible scattered showers.
