Comfortable Weather to Last Through Friday

(Published Thursday, July 16, 2015)

Downpours soaked parts of Connecticut on Wednesday, but a cold front has cleared the weather out through the end of the week.

Thursday features unlimited sunshine with no humidity whatsoever. Temperatures will be in the lower-80s for most of the state and upper-70s in the hill towns.

We'll see similar weather tomorrow morning as high pressure maintains control. We're expecting plenty of sunshine early in the day, but some clouds will move in later on. High temperatures will be in the lower-80s.

Tim McGraw takes the stage at the Xfinity Theatre at 8 p.m. By then, temperatures will be falling quickly through the 70s and into the 60s, with a good amount of clouds in the sky.

Humidity returns this weekend with the passage of a warm front.

Saturday features sun and clouds with a few showers. A rumble of thunder is possible, but the ingredients for severe weather aren’t there. Temperatures will be in the lower- and mid-80s.

The pick of the weekend looks to be Sunday, with partly cloudy skies and temperatures in the mid- and upper-80s. It would make a fabulous beach day, as Long Island Sound water temperatures are now entering the 70-degree range.

A cold front comes through early next week, either on Monday or Tuesday. The timing is key to the eventual weather but at this point, it’s uncertain.

For now, both Monday and Tuesday feature the chance for showers and thunderstorms. Temperatures will be well into the 80s, especially inland.

High pressure returns in the middle part of next week. As such, it should turn out to be pretty nice by Wednesday or Thursday.
