Some Personal News – I wanted to announce that if everything goes as planned, we will be moving from Springfield to Sturbridge in early November & we are super excited for this to happen! This move is about 16 months in the making as we began looking for a larger home with more privacy and more room for our dogs during the late Spring and early Summer of 2020. After A LOT of house viewings and about a dozen rejected offers, we found a house we are absolutely in love with in Sturbridge & the offer on the house was accepted – FINALLY!! This move is not only great news for us personally, but it’s also great news for Route 20 Weather as I will be much more centrally located & in an area that’s not covered very well by either the local news media or the National Weather Service. Route 20 Weather will still be covering all of Western and Central Mass, just our location will be moved about 20 miles or so further east. Anyways, onto the latest forecast: For This Afternoon: A mixture of sunshine and clouds can be expected throughout this afternoon with temperatures near 70 Degrees. Tonight: An area of high pressure is expected to remain in control of our weather tonight. This means that clear to partly cloudy skies can be expected tonight with low temperatures of near 45 Degrees. It should be noted that some areas of fog is possible late tonight in low-lying areas and in the valleys. Thursday: Thursday is shaping up to be a very nice day across the region as an area of high pressure continues to control the weather. Lots of sunshine is expected on Thursday with high temperatures between 70 and 75 Degrees. Friday: High pressure will bring another nice day to Western and Central Mass on Friday with sunny to partly sunny skies expected and high temperatures between 70 and 75 Degrees. Saturday Through Columbus Day: Even though an area of high pressure will be positioned over Maine this weekend, a persistent east-southeasterly wind flow is expected to hang out over Southern New England throughout the weekend. Because of this, low-level moisture will be imported into the area and this means that low clouds and areas of fog and intermittent drizzle will occur all weekend. Saturday looks cloudy with areas of fog and possible drizzle at times with high temperatures near 65 Degrees. Sunday also looks cloudy with areas of fog and possible drizzle at times. High temperatures Sunday will be near 65 Degrees. Turning to Columbus Day, that east-southeasterly wind flow looks to break down and thus we may see slightly warmer temperatures, but still cloudy skies. In addition, we’re going to have to keep an eye on a low pressure system that’ll be near the Mid-Atlantic states by Sunday and Monday. At this point, it appears that the track of this low pressure system will be such that it’ll keep the rain to our south. With that said, it’s something to keep an eye on. High temperatures on Columbus Day will be near 70 Degrees.
