An awesome weekend of weather is on deck as high pressure builds into the region.
Puffy cumulus clouds will dot the sky today with temperatures in the middle-80s and afternoon humidity levels will be comfortable with a refreshing breeze!
Tomorrow, the temperatures surge toward 90 degrees inland with lots of sun and temperatures at the shoreline will be in the middle-80s, so it will be a great beach day.
Sunday is basically a copy of Saturday, except there’s a better chance that a few locations top 90 degrees, which would be the first 90-degree day of the summer.
Since the snow melted, two days have hit 90 degrees in the Hartford area, but both were in May. On average, through July 10, inland Connecticut sees six days top out at 90 degrees or higher.
There are several concerts at the Xfinity Theatre and several fireworks displays this weekend and the weather couldn’t be more cooperative.
Next week, a dip in the jet stream results in an unsettled pattern that doesn’t look pleasant at all. The key to each day’s forecast will be timing little disturbances in the flow.
While most of Monday is dry as clouds thicken, a shower is possible late as a warm front lifts over the region. Temperatures will be in the middle-80s.
A few cold fronts will approach and pass through on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, so each day features clouds, showers and humidity, but some breaks of sun are likely.
Thunderstorms are possible in the middle part of next week, but it’s too early to peg down the specifics. Temperatures will be in the 80s.
Indications are that high pressure finally returns on Friday of next week, so after a long stretch of unsettled weather, the week might end on a high note.
