Temperatures Soar to 70 Degrees Next Week

The first weekend of March will be seasonable and dry, before a major warm-up next week.

Tomorrow will be mostly sunny with highs in the lower 40s. Clouds roll in late.

Sunday will feature a blend of clouds and sunshine, though high temperatures will still be in the lower 40s.

Noticeably warmer air moves in on Monday, when high temperatures will be in the middle 50s with lots of sunshine.

Temperatures skyrocket come Tuesday.

A blend of clouds and sunshine will couple with highs in the middle 60s. Spring will be in the air!

The first 70-degree day of the year is likely on Wednesday, but the shoreline will be closer to 60 degrees with a component of the wind off the relatively cold Long Island Sound.

As is typically the case this time of year, a backdoor cold front will move through on Thursday.

That means it won't be as warm, but it will still be in the 50s – a solid 10 degrees above average!

Showers are possible Thursday with the front in the area.

Friday continues the downward trend, with a mix of sun and clouds and highs only in the lower 40s.
