Showers, Thunderstorms Possible Tomorrow

NBC Connecticut meteorologist Tyler Jankoski has the afternoon forecast for April 21. (Published Thursday, April 21, 2016)

A cold front will spark off thunderstorms tomorrow before glorious weather sets in for the weekend.

Clouds move in tonight and as a result, lows will only drop to the lower and middle 50s.

Most of the shower and thunderstorm activity will be focused in the afternoon and evening hours tomorrow.

The severe threat is low.

Saturday looks awesome with lots of sunshine and highs in the upper 60s.

It's also a dry day Sunday, when sunshine will blend with thin clouds. However, it will be cooler, with highs only near 60.

A pattern change puts an active storm track over Connecticut next week.

It's never easy to forecast when a front is hung up overhead. That's the case early next week.

Temperatures could easily vary by 10 or 20 degrees across the state, with southern reaches being the warmest. Hartford could be 55 degrees while Stamford is 65 degrees.

For now, First Alert forecasters think the Hartford area will be in the cold side of the front, which would result in temperatures in the 50s.

Showers are likely both Monday and Tuesday, with a batch of steady rain possible Tuesday.

High pressure should nose itself into the region to provide a dry day on Wednesday, even though it will still be on the cool side.
