After today, the weekend looks quite nice, as both days feature a mix of sun and clouds.

High temperatures will be near 40 degrees on Saturday, but soar to near 50 on Sunday.

Monday could be even warmer, with temperatures into the 50s!

This forecast looks more like spring than the start of February. Average temperatures in the Hartford area currently sit at 35 for the high and 18 for the low.

There are indications that the pattern shifts a bit late next week to become colder and perhaps promote storminess along the East Coast.
