There’s a bit of mid-summer like heat and a fall chill on the way for the week ahead.
NBC Connecticut First Alert meteorologists are expecting a big change in the jet stream by the end of the week, allowing colder air to move in by the week’s end.
A strong area of high pressure that continues to bake the south with 90s will push warmth our way on Tuesday and Wednesday. By Wednesday, our high temperatures are expected to reach the middle to upper 80s. There’s a chance some towns could get close to 90 degrees.
A strong cold front brings us showers on Wednesday night and a wind shift to the north and east ushering in much colder air. Highs may struggle into the 60s on Thursday and Friday. Some towns will not get out of the 50s. That is a temperature drop of 20 to 25 degrees.
The cold front is expected to linger close by, which also means the cooler temperatures will be accompanied by a chance for rain and showers Thursday into Friday.
