Many Chances for Rain This Week

NBC Connecticut Meteorologist Tyler Jankoski takes a look at the forecast leading up to the July fourth weekend. (Published Monday, June 29, 2015)

After a wet, cloudy weekend, the start to the work week isn’t much better. An abundance of clouds today will keep temperatures in the 70s. There can be a spot sprinkle, but overall there will be more peeks of sun as the day wears on.

A dry window of weather arrives on Tuesday, with plenty of sunshine and temperatures in the 80s inland and 70s at the shore. From a humidity standpoint, it will be a comfortable day!

By Tuesday night, a warm front will move over the region and result in scattered showers and increasing humidity. Temperatures will be quite warm in the mid-60s.

Numerous showers and thunderstorms are expected throughout Wednesday, and some of the storms could be strong to severe. It all depends on how much warm air is able to sneak into the region. For now, the forecast is for temperatures in 80s inland.

Unfortunately, the threat of showers and thunderstorms doesn’t go away with the passage of the cold front.

A developing wave of low pressure over Kentucky will ride along the stalled front and help feed in more showers for Thursday.

The track of the storm will determine whether Friday features a soaking rain or just clouds and a few showers.

It will likely be humid with dew points well into the 60s.

The big ticket item in the extended forecast is obviously July Fourth. It’s too far out to etch anything into stone, but most of the holiday weekend appears dry and seasonably warm with high pressure in command.
