Pleasant Weekend Ahead

August 8 weather image

Comfortable weather continues here as the second weekend of August has arrived.

High temperatures will be in the lower- to middle-80s across the state with no humidity.

A storm picks up steam off the Carolina coast and heads north and east this weekend. The track will be hundreds of miles off the southern New England coast and therefore miss Connecticut.
Tomorrow will be dry with partly cloudy skies and temperatures will be in the lower-80s.

Sunday is also a dry day, but more clouds than Saturday are expected. A moist onshore flow from the north and east will shuttle in clouds. While it won’t be overcast, the day is likely to feature more clouds than Saturday.

Temperatures will be in the lower- and middle-80s on Sunday with the continued lack of humidity.

One or two days without humidity in early August would be reasonable, but this long stretch is odd.
Monday will bring mostly sunny skies with temperatures right near seasonable levels in the lower- and middle-80s. The humidity will increase, especially late in the day.

Beyond Monday, the weather pattern turns unsettled.

Showers are likely on Tuesday as a storm system moves through the region. It will be humid with occasional downpours. With the cloud cover, temperatures will be stuck in the upper-70s.

While some showers might linger early on Wednesday, the trend will be improvement later in the day as drier weather works into Connecticut. Temperatures return to the 80s.

High pressure builds in late week, yielding another impressive stretch of weather for middle-August. Temperatures will be seasonable, in the lower-80s, with no humidity and plenty of sunshine to go around.
