Summertime heat and humidity stuck around Western Massachusetts today. High temperatures climbed into the lower-90s once again, with dewpoints stretching into the lower-70s. It has been very uncomfortable outside, and this type of air mass will help fuel the potential of strong thunderstorms as we head into the evening.

A Severe Thunderstorm Watch is in effect for all of Western Massachusetts until 10 p.m. These storms have already begun developing across the state of New York, and are expected in the downtown Springfield area before sunset. Damaging winds, heavy downpours, and vivid lightning is possible.

A cold front is approaching the region, which is drawing in this humid air ahead of it and providing the trigger for these thunderstorms. This front will pass through overnight, allowing lower humidity and drier weather to settle in for Thursday. A stray shower is possible tomorrow, mainly south of the Mass Pike. High temperatures top out at 80 degrees.

Friday and Saturday will have mostly sunny skies return to Western Massachusetts. Humidity levels stay low and temperatures remain in the lower-80s. A trough returns to the Northeast as the weekend finishes, putting showers back in the forecast for Sunday, Monday, and Tuesday.
