<p>Far more comfortable air has moved into Connecticut and it’s here to stay through the weekend!</p>
<p>The cold front that passed through yesterday is now over the Atlantic Ocean, but a dramatic change in temperature is not in the forecast. The big change is the drop in humidity.</p>
<p>Nearly unlimited sunshine is expected for the balance of Friday, with only a handful of puffy clouds over the high terrain. Temperatures will be in the middle- and upper-80s.</p>
<p>Great sleeping weather is anticipated tonight as temperatures fall to near 60 degrees.</p>
<p>Tomorrow isn’t completely dry, as there can be a stray storm in the afternoon as a disturbance moves by to the north and east, but most areas will stay dry. Temperatures will be in the middle- and upper-80s.</p>
<p>Sunday is the pick of the weekend, with mostly sunny conditions and temperatures again in the middle- and upper-80s. It would make a great beach day as water temperatures in Long Island Sound are well into the 70s!</p>
<p>Another cold front approaches on Monday and will provide the lift as the humidity ramps up and the sun increases the amount of instability. Strong to severe storms are a possibility but it’s too far out to etch anything into stone.</p>
<p>The front isn’t a fast mover, so more showers and thunderstorms are in the forecast on Tuesday. It will be humid with temperatures in the 80s.</p>
<p>Wednesday looks pleasant with a mix clouds and sun in the wake of the cold front, but Thursday is a toss-up. Some indications are for a rainstorm, while others show high pressure building in.</p>
<p>For now, the Thursday forecast is for a chance of showers with temperatures near 80 degrees.<br />
