Christmas Day will be dry with a blend of clouds and sunshine. More clouds than sun are expected along the shoreline. Temperatures won't be quite as warm as Christmas Eve, though they will still be in the lower 60s.

This weekend is unsettled.

Clouds will rule on Saturday with a few showers later in the day and at night. Temperatures will near 50s degrees.

Some showers may linger early Sunday, but the midday period will be dry. Then, another round of showers arrives late in the afternoon and in the evening. Temperatures will be near 60 degrees.

A storm early next week will bring snow to ice to rain. High pressure will be entrenched over Quebec and drifting southeast. That's prime placement for a winter storm in Connecticut.

The timing continues to be in flux, but right now the storm looks to occur mostly on Tuesday. A few inches of snow are possible statewide before a changeover. Inland areas likely see ice to rain while shoreline areas quickly go over to rain.
