High pressure is providing dry weather to start the workweek, but the remnants of Patricia will bring needed rainfall to Connecticut on Wednesday.

Tomorrow starts out bright and sunny, but clouds increase as the day goes on. High temperatures will be in the middle and upper 50s.

The remnants of Patricia come north on Wednesday in the form of rain for Connecticut. It's likely that Connecticut sees more than a half inch of rain, with some areas seeing up to 1.5 inches by Thursday morning.

The heaviest of the rain will fall late Wednesday into early Thursday morning. While there can be a shower early Thursday, much of the day features clearing.

High temperatures on Wednesday and Thursday will be above average, in the 60s.

It will be breezy on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. But that's a sign of high pressure building in, and indeed it will.

The weekend looks great, especially Halloween. Temperatures will be in the 50s on Halloween afternoon, but fall back pretty quickly through the 40s in the evening.

Though October is winding down and November is almost here, no widespread freezes are expected through this weekend. The hill towns, however, could see a freeze tonight and again Friday and Saturday nights.

In fact, the trend for the first week of November is warming. Indications show a much above average airmass moving in, meaning temperatures could return to the middle and upper 60s next week!
