More Fall-Like Weather Arrives Today

After starting fall with summer-like temperatures yesterday, more fall-like weather arrives today.

Showers and downpours moved through the state overnight, marking the first rain in eight days. We're still below the expected rainfall.

Over the past 90 days, Windsor Locks, where we keep records for the Hartford area, has seen 8.67 inches of rain. In that time frame, we should see 12.74 inches of rain.

In that same time period last year, we saw 20.72 inches of rain. Compared to normal and compared to last year, this year we are trending more dry.

Behind the rain is some cooler air.

Temperatures will climb from the 60s to the 70s this afternoon. It's still a little unseasonably warm, but much closer to normal than the 80s and 90s we saw yesterday.

We don't stay cooler for long. Temperatures will be back in the 80s by Thursday.
