Morning Drizzle, Afternoon Rain Tomorrow

Cool down this weekend

Above average warmth continues and that means the next storm will be rain tomorrow.

Temperatures will fall off quickly initially tonight, but once clouds move in the trend will slow. That's an important part of the forecast with drizzle expected in the morning.

Connecticut is in the clear of freezing drizzle, but that's not the case in portions of northern New England!

Tomorrow morning will be damp. However, the steady rain holds off until the afternoon hours. The rain should continue at a good clip through early evening before tapering to showers.

High temperatures will be in the lower and middle 50s tomorrow.

Skies will remain mostly cloudy on Friday as a weak wave of low pressure forms and rides north along the departed cold front. An isolated shower is possible in eastern Connecticut, while most others remain dry. Temperatures will range from 45 to 51 degrees.

This weekend will be dry but chilly. Chilly, in the sense that this type of air hasn't reached the state in a long while. Temperatures will still be at or above average.

Windy conditions are expected Saturday with a blend of more clouds than sunshine. The lake-effect machine will be roaring to the west, so it's possible a flurry reaches the hill towns.

Highs on Saturday will range from the middle 30s in the hills to the lower 40s along the shoreline.

Sunday will be warmer. Mostly sunny skies are expected with highs ranging from the lower to middle 40s.

The early part of the next work week looks unsettled though temperatures will be on the rise. In fact, 60s are possible again on Wednesday.
