Abundant Sunshine, Above Average Temperatures Return

Five Mile Lighthouse in New Haven.

Sustained dry, sunny weather is here, for the first time in more than a week.

Temperatures will fall back into the 40s tonight under mostly clear skies.

Tomorrow and Thursday will be sunny with highs in the middle and upper 70s – above average!

The next chance for showers comes as a series of fronts approach Connecticut.

A period of showers is likely in the second half of Friday, and as a result, temperatures will drop from previous days to the upper 60s.

Follow-up cold fronts over the weekend should be weak.

That knowledge tends to favor mainly dry but breezy weather, with large, puffy clouds mixing with sunshine.

High temperatures over the weekend will be near 70 Saturday, but fall into the lower 60s by Sunday.
