SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WWLP) – High temperatures only reached the 20s on Wednesday, leaving many to wonder, whether spring will ever come.
Spring officially starts on March 20, which is just two weeks away, and it looks like the weather might start warming up just in time. Chilly temperatures and a light breeze made for one cold day Wednesday. But we should see some relief soon.
“I am so sick of winter,” Bryan Silkey from Chicopee told 22News. “I-I lived in San Diego for a little bit, and my blood never thickened up, I hate the cold.”
This was an unusually cold week in western Massachusetts, but next week, high temperatures will stay around the 40s.
By the end of March, many long-term models suggest highs will start reaching the 50s, and that looks pretty steady toward the start of April as well. But some local residents say they aren’t in a rush for spring to come.
“Well, the sooner the better, but I don’t mind the cold–it’s alright,” John from Indian Orchard explained.
Regardless of whether you love or hate the cold, a warm-up is coming. And with temperatures that high, that could mean the end of strong winter storms for the season and the return of a greener landscape.
The current seasonal forecast points toward an overall warmer-than-normal spring.
The average high temperature for March in Springfield is 47 degrees. That temperature average jumps to 62 degrees in April.
