Good Morning,

It will be bright and sunny today but also very windy! Temperatures are chilly now, starting out in the 30′s. With the wind it feels even cooler. You will need the winter jacket for a little while this morning until it warms up. You will also need the sun glasses and sunscreen too. We’ll see plenty of sunshine throughout the day with highs near 60 later on.

The story today however will be the winds, which could gust up over 40 mph which may lead to a few power outages. The strong winds combined with low humidity levels, strong April sunshine and the recent limited rainfall around here means the threat for brush fires will be high and has prompted a Red Flag Warning for Berkshire County. Today is not a good day to burn brush and will likely be banned in your community anyway! The wind will gradually diminishes later this afternoon and as we head into the evening hours.

Tomorrow looks pleasant with a lot less wind. Sunshine tomorrow will give way to some late day clouds but for the most part the sunshine should dominate as high pressure hangs on. A few light showers are possible by tomorrow evening and showers appear likely Friday night into Saturday morning. Although Saturday does not look like a washout clouds will linger and there will be a few more showers here and there. This system will push away for Sunday giving way to sunny, cool conditions. Sunday is looking like the better of the weekend days.

Have a great Thursday!
