High pressure will build in this weekend and make for dry weather.
High temperatures will be near 50 Saturday, then slightly cooler, in the 40s comes Sunday.
One minor exception to the dry weather comes Saturday as an area of low pressure forms offshore – it could bring a shower to southeastern Connecticut.
Monday will be the nicest day of the next seven, at least for outdoor activities.
Complete sunshine is anticipated, with temperatures in the middle 40s.
Several storm systems bring a substantial chance for rain by the middle of next week.
Rain begins Tuesday, likely in the morning, and doesn't completely exit the region until Thursday morning.
Freezing rain is possible at the onset of the precipitation Tuesday, given that temperatures will start out in the 20s.
This rain would be great news for the drought situation across the state, as the rainfall deficit is now up near 20 inches.
