Refreshing Weather to Last Through Weekend

Far more comfortable air has moved into Connecticut and it’s here to stay through the weekend!

The cold front that passed through yesterday is now over the Atlantic Ocean, but a dramatic change in temperature is not in the forecast. The big change is the drop in humidity.

Nearly unlimited sunshine is expected for the balance of Friday, with only a handful of puffy clouds over the high terrain. Temperatures will be in the middle- and upper-80s.

Great sleeping weather is anticipated tonight as temperatures fall to near 60 degrees.

Tomorrow isn’t completely dry, as there can be a stray storm in the afternoon as a disturbance moves by to the north and east, but most areas will stay dry. Temperatures will be in the middle- and upper-80s.

Sunday is the pick of the weekend, with mostly sunny conditions and temperatures again in the middle- and upper-80s. It would make a great beach day as water temperatures in Long Island Sound are well into the 70s!

Another cold front approaches on Monday and will provide the lift as the humidity ramps up and the sun increases the amount of instability. Strong to severe storms are a possibility but it’s too far out to etch anything into stone.

The front isn’t a fast mover, so more showers and thunderstorms are in the forecast on Tuesday. It will be humid with temperatures in the 80s.

Wednesday looks pleasant with a mix clouds and sun in the wake of the cold front, but Thursday is a toss-up. Some indications are for a rainstorm, while others show high pressure building in.

For now, the Thursday forecast is for a chance of showers with temperatures near 80 degrees.
