FLORENCE, Mass. (WWLP) – Western Massachusetts will be feeling like Fall sooner than later. 22News is working for you explaining what’s bringing on this sudden change in the weather.
Hot, humid, and dry. Most farmers in the Pioneer Valley can agree this summer has been one of the toughest.
22News talked to Pine Brook Farm, who have been around for almost 65 years, that said this summer was by far one of the worst summers. Even when it did rain, it didn’t do much.
Sandy Jaescke, Owner of Pine Brook Farm, told 22News, “It just evaporates before it hits the ground or it runs off because the ground is so dry so we need something that is going to soak in.”
Farmers and western Massachusetts residents are looking for a soaking rain.
Relief is on the way Sunday night with a soaking rain in the forecast. The rain will be also taking the heat and humidity out of the air, making it feel like fall but only temporarily.
So why are we finally going to be feeling the relief from the hot, humid, and hazy conditions? Its because a cold front is moving through and replacing the warm and humid air with cool and less humid air. You will really notice the difference on Monday!
22News went to Look Park in Florence to find out people’s reactions on the fall-like weather and if it might be coming too soon.
Alison Garriss. from Northampton, told 22News, “I’m definitely looking forward to that, I appreciate the warm when its here but I’m looking forward to my jeans, boots, and long sleeve t-shirts.”
Others are just excited for just a break in the heat and humidity.
That’s why Jacklyn Gomez, from Easthampton, is excited for the change in weather Monday, “I can’t wait I’m excited now, I’m excited for tomorrow!”
Fall officially starts September 22nd.
For those who are aren’t ready to let go of summer, fall is still a month away. But for those ready for Fall, an early gift for those eager to feel the comfortable, and cooler air.
