Pop-Up Shower Possible During Mostly Sunny Day



    Weather in Detail for Afternoon of August 12

    NBC Connecticut meteorologist Tyler Jankoski says another fantastic stretch of weather is underway. (Published Wednesday, Aug. 12, 2015)

    After beneficial rain yesterday, much improved weather has arrived and it will stick around for a while, though there could still be a pop-up shower.

    While the cold front is now east of the region, an upper-level disturbance means there is a cold pool of air aloft and the heating of the surface results in instability.

    Sun will mix with puffy clouds this afternoon and there can be a pop-up sprinkle or shower. Not a big deal and most will stay dry. Temperature will reach the lower-80s.

    Tomorrow features unlimited sunshine as high pressure builds in from the west. Temperatures again will be in the lower-80s, which is considered seasonable for this time of year. The humidity will remain absent!

    Friday is another weather winner with lots of sunshine, temperatures in the middle-80s and no humidity.

    The next chance of active weather arrives Saturday, but it won’t be a washout.

    A cold front diving south out of Canada will spark off scattered showers and thunderstorms in the afternoon and evening Saturday. The humidity will be noticeable with temperatures in the middle-80s.

    The front doesn’t drop the temperatures much but it does wash away any sign of humidity. Sunday will be spectacular with lots of sun and temperatures in the middle-80s.

    A growing signal exists for increasing heat early next week, with temperatures soaring into the upper-80s to perhaps 90 degrees by the middle part of the week.
