As the middle of June nears, oppressive heat and humidity continue to evade Connecticut.
Today looks splendid, with an abundance of sun and temperatures well into the 80s. Smoke from Canadian wildfires is missing Connecticut to the south, as nearby as Wildwood, New Jersey.
Another cold front comes through on Thursday, but there is a change in the forecast. Most of the day will be dry, hot and humid.
A stray shower or rumble of thunder is possible in the morning and afternoon and clouds will mix with sun before the sky clears later in the day.
Friday looks like a great finish to the workweek with lots of sun and temperatures in the 80s.
Dew points will be in the low-50s, so nice and comfortable conditions are expected for Dave Matthews Band at the XFINITY Theatre in the evening.
On Saturday, it turns unsettled and humid once again. There can be scattered showers and thunderstorms.
High pressure builds in to close the weekend on Sunday, meaning plenty of sunshine with temperatures in the 80s. At this point, Sunday looks like the pick of the weekend and thus the best day to head to the beach!
