A Big Temperature SwingOctober 13th, 2012 at 8:33 pm by Adam Strzempko under Weather
No question about it, it felt like winter Saturday morning with temperatures in the lower 20′s in some spots. At Barnes Airport in Westfield it got down to 23 degrees and at Westover Air Reserve Base in Chicopee it got down to 22 degrees, breaking the old record of 25 set back in 1963. Highs on Saturday were only in the low to mid 50′s, that’s about 10 degrees cooler than normal.
If you’re not quite ready for winter you’re in luck, temperatures will be warming up. On Sunday we’ll be back up in the low to mid 60′s. Then we go from 10 degrees below normal to potentially 10 degrees above normal with highs on Monday forecasted to be in the lower 70′s.
The temperatures over the next couple of days will make it a bit challenging to decide what to wear, however you’ll probably want to have the rain gear handy because there looks to be at least a few showers around.
