Partly cloudy skies are anticipated Friday with a pop-up shower in the afternoon. Northern and eastern areas of Connecticut stand the best chance of seeing a five-minute shower.
Saturday will be the pick of the weekend, with a mix of sun and clouds. It would make a great beach day with temperatures in the lower-and-middle 80s.
Showers are likely on Sunday as a cold front approaches. The front itself will die out before reaching New England, but the weather will still be unsettled with temperatures in the 80s.
Sunday and Monday will both be humid. Other than those two days, the forecast remains comfortable in terms of humidity.
The disturbance that brings showers on Sunday sticks around for Monday, though the chance of showers on Monday will be lower.
A good signal for sustained heat and humidity arriving in the eastern United States exists next week. As of July 23, both Connecticut climate sites have yet to experience a heat wave this year.
Tuesday appears to be the start of the surge of heat, with temperature readings potentially topping 90 degrees. It looks like Wednesday will also register 90 degrees inland, while temperatures near the water remain in the middle-80s.
