Fall officially starts at 9:54 p.m. Saturday night, and as many of us felt Saturday, temperatures are dropping.
We’ll stay in the 60s the next few days, and humidity will stay low through Monday — although we could see a quick warm-up later this week.
But what is the entire season looking like? If you like warmer temperatures, then this year is for you. Average high temperatures for October in Springfield are in the low 60s, and around 50 degrees for November.
But this year, all of Massachusetts is looking at a 40-50 percent chance of a warmer-than-average season, the best bet out of the three possibilities of below, near, or above the normal seasonal temperature.
Now this doesn’t mean we won’t have cooler days, but the entire roughly-three-month period will end up being overall warmer.
But sadly, we might need those umbrellas a little more often, because in terms of precipitation, we’re facing a chance of above-normal rainfall.
