Good Evening everyone,

It’s been a great start to the Labor Day Weekend! College football is back and wow was it a great day for it. Highs approached 80 throughout the Pioneer Valley Saturday and dew points were manageable. Clouds increase tonight heading into Sunday. Moisture will surge into the region bringing back the muggy weather we all felt earlier this week. Dewpoints may approach 70! Yuck! All of this moisture will lead to showers and storms tomorrow afternoon. An approaching cold front will be the trigger Sunday afternoon. The best chance for storms is between 4-8 PM Sunday. Models are indicating 1-3″ of possible rainfall. Isolated flash flooding is a concern, but not expected to be a widespread threat. If you have outdoor plans, think ahead! Lightning is likely with these thunderstorms.

Labor Day will bring better weather, but still a threat for pop up showers. This threat will push south, however. Despite the wet weather Sunday, muggy conditions will linger. Tuesday will bring another chance for showers, but coverage will be isolated.

High pressure and more comfortable weather returns Wednesday following frontal passage. Dewpoints fall to the low 50s, with highs continuing in the 80s. Summer doesn’t want to let go. I think we are all okay with that. Sunny and dry weather continues through the end of the work week.
