May in March: 70s Arrive Wednesday

Temperatures will rise each day heading into the middle part of this week, eventually topping out in the 70s!

Tomorrow will be mostly cloudy, with highs nearing 60.

Wednesday will be the warmest day of the week, with temperatures skyrocketing into the lower and perhaps middle 70s inland, but only near 60 on the shoreline.

The water in Long Island Sound is currently around 40 degrees, so that's why locations near the water will be dramatically cooler.

A few showers are possible Thursday. The potential for 70 degrees is there on Thursday as well, though it is unlikely because a backdoor cold front will be in the area.

An area of high pressure off the Carolina coast will provide southwesterly and westerly winds.

Records are in jeopardy.

In the Harford area, record maxes are 72, 70 and 75 for the period Wednesday through Friday.

In the Bridgeport area, record maxes are 60, 70 and 67 for the period Wednesday through Friday.

A number of record warm low temperatures may also fall by the time this week is out.

Friday probably turns out dry with an abundance of clouds, with temperatures near 60.

The weekend could start out with showers on Saturday before drying out on Sunday, though confidence is very low at that time range.

Temperatures will be in the 50s this weekend.
