Dry Weather Continues

(Published Wednesday, Sept. 23, 2015)

High pressure over New England is keeping the threat of any rain away from Connecticut through the first part of the weekend.

Thursday feature tons of sunshine with high temperatures in the upper-70s, which is above average.

While it might feel chilly in the morning, 50 degrees is the average low for this time of year and 72 degrees is the average high temperature.

Friday features high clouds mixing with sunshine, but it will be dry. Temperatures won’t be as high as previous days, with a high in the lower-70s.

The early part of the weekend also looks dry, with lots of sunshine on Saturday. High temperatures will be in the lower-70s, providing great weather to head to the fair!

An update on the rainfall deficits for 2015 shows Windsor Locks is down 5.1 inches and Bridgeport is down 6.2 inches.

The next chance of rain is during the afternoon and evening on Sunday and into Monday as a low-pressure system fights to come close to the state.

Not much rain is expected, though a shower cannot be ruled out later on Sunday. Monday will see a slightly better chance of a few showers.

Temperatures to start next week look fairly seasonable.

Tropical Storm Ida looks to maintain tropical storm strength heading into next week over the central Atlantic, but it is no threat to land.
