Evening Forecast December 5, 2019

Tomorrow is looking a bit damp after an awesome 2 days of weather. The timing - and amount of rain - is quite difficult to pin down.

(Published Thursday, June 15, 2017)

Warm air will stream in tomorrow above our heads and that will force air to rise resulting in clouds and even a bit of rain. You can see this by looking at the atmosphere about 5,000 feet above our heads. A southerly wind will transport warm and moist air from the ocean northward into Connecticut resulting in clouds and a rising chance for rain.

Our models are struggling with the timing of the strongest lift. Does it come in during the morning or hold off until afternoon? It's still a bit unclear. At the very least prepare for some rain tomorrow and even a few downpours. With an onshore wind temperatures will be stuck in the 60s for most of the day.

Beyond tomorrow the news is better for the weekend. As a warm front passes Connecticut we will gradually clear things out with warmer weather and even some sunshine by Father's Day. The next round of rain with a few pockets of heavy rain and storms will approach later Monday and Monday night.
