There were some snowflakes in parts of Connecticut Monday, but the sun is shining today and temperatures have reached the high-80s in parts of the state.
Temperatures could even come close to breaking the daily high-temperature record for the day. The temperature reached 90 degrees at Bradley Airport Wednesday afternoon. The record for today of 93 was set in 2001.
It will be a beautiful day to head to the beaches however, temperatures will be considerably cooler with an afternoon sea-breeze.
Temperatures along the shoreline will run a good 10 to 15 degrees cooler than inland areas.
Wednesday will remain dry with an increased thunderstorm threat by Thursday.
A decent amount of instability and wind shear will be present. This will allow any thunderstorm that does form to become strong or even severe.
