Good Sunday Morning,

A beautiful day is on tap for your Sunday, though it will be cooler than yesterday.  We reached 78 degrees yesterday at Westover Air Reserve Base in Chicopee.  We will not get into the 70s today but it will still be seasonably mild with highs topping out in the lower 60s.  That is right about where we should be for this time of year.  Tonight we will see increasing clouds in advance of our next weather-maker with lows falling back into the upper 30s and lower 40s.  

As you head out the door Monday morning expect cloudy skies and there may be some areas of drizzle or showers but a steady, wind driven rain will move in as we head into the afternoon.  The rain could come down heavy at times Monday afternoon into Monday night.  In addition to the rain and the wind it will be a cool afternoon with highs struggling to reach 50 degrees.  Early estimates on total rainfall are looking to be in the inch to inch and a half range. 

Some showers will linger for Tuesday morning, but we may see some sun in the afternoon with temperatures rising into the lower 60s.  There will also be a bit of a breeze. 

The rest of the week, an upper level low approaches the region. This is a cold pool of air aloft, and results in instability during the heating of the day. Thus, while it will be dry most of the time, lots of clouds will be around during the heating of the day, and the threat for a shower here and there cannot be ruled out. It won’t be a washout.
