Although it’s still officially summer, it didn’t feel like it last night in Western Massachusetts.
Temperatures dropped into the mid-30s in some areas, reminding the region that fall isn’t far off.
“There was probably some patchy frost around Northwest Massachusetts overnight,” said meteorologist Hayden Frank at the National Weather Service.
Today will be mostly sunny, and humidity will remain low. Temperatures will climb into the low 70s, though a sea breeze could moderate temperatures into the upper 60s along the coast. Skies will remain clear overnight, and temperatures will drop into the low 50s, according to the weather service.
The weekend will see its share of pleasant weather as well as cooler, rainy conditions.
Saturday will be mostly sunny, and temperatures will shoot up to around 80. Clouds will surface late Saturday, but the region should stay dry through the evening.
A cold front will move into the region Saturday night, and clouds will develop early Sunday. Scattered showers are possible between 10 a.m. and 1 p.m., and a southwest wind will bring gusts up to 18 miles per hour, according to the weather service.
“Sunday doesn’t look as good as Saturday,” Frank said. “There could be a couple showers, but nothing widespread and they won’t last that long.”
Skies will clear up late in the day, and temperatures will drop into the upper 40s overnight.
Summer-like conditions will resurface early next week, and rain is unlikely until Thursday.
“It’s a transition season so we get ups and downs,” Frank said. “We are going to start to warm back up into Tuesday, and return to a more summer-like pattern with increasing humidity.”
