A stationary front will impact Connecticut's weather through tomorrow, so even though a warm-up is on the way, it won't be completely sunny.

The front aligns west to east just north of the state border tomorrow, so it will be mostly cloudy. There can be a shower in far northern towns like Somers or Enfield, but for most it's a dry day.

Even with the clouds, temperatures will rise into the middle and upper 60s! Some towns may touch 70 degrees.

A cold front approaches on Thursday, but it won't move through until later in the day. Most of the day will be dry and mostly cloudy. High temperatures inland will be near 70 degrees! The hill towns and shoreline will be in the middle 60s.

As the front moves through late Thursday, a few showers will come through.

A cold front will bring a few showers to the state later on Thursday.

More of a balanced blend of clouds and sun returns Friday in the wake of Thursday's front, but temperatures will take a hit. Highs will only be in the middle and upper 50s!

Saturday looks like the pick of the weekend, with mostly sunny skies and high temperatures near 60 degrees.

A third cold front passes through Sunday, bringing with it a good amount of clouds and a few rain showers. Again high temperatures will be near 60 degrees.

Rainfall deficits for the year are now over 6 inches at both Connecticut climate sites. The National Drought Mitigation Center's most recent report says more than 80 percent of Connecticut is dealing with moderate drought.
