Gloomy Start, Summer Finish

This weekend will get off to a damp and dreary start. Morning clouds, fog and drizzle in spots will greet you Saturday morning. Clouds will break for some sun, mainly in the afternoon with temperatures in the 70s. It will stay cooler along the shore or parts of southeastern Connecticut (60s) where the clouds and fog could linger all day. Summer warmth returns again just in time for Mother’s Day.  After a cloudy start, developing sunshine will help temperatures soar into the 70s and 80s.

Tonight: Becoming cloudy with areas of fog and drizzle. Low: 50s.

Tomorrow: Morning clouds and fog slowly break for some sun. Not as warm. High: mid to upper 70s inland, upper 60s for the shoreline. 

Sunday: Early clouds and fog give way to sunshine. Warmer. High: low to mid 80s inland, low 70s for the shoreline. 

Monday: Clouds and sun, chance for a few showers. High: low to mid 80s inland, low 70s for the shoreline. 

Tuesday: Clouds and sun, chance for a shower or two. High: near 80 inland, mid 70s for the shore. 


Wednesday: Sunny, cooler than recent days. High: mid to upper 60s.

Fradiani Fever!

About 2 mins before my weathercast on Thursday, I was informed that Connecticut's American Idol Nick Fradiani would be joining me to do the weather. WHAT!? I quickly jumped into my show timeline and started deleting graphics. I didn't think Nick wanted to show computer models or surface maps. We didn't have any plan going into the weathercast and we didn't need one. Nick was such a down to earth guy and he really knows how to roll with the punches. We're all rooting for you Nick! (Especially me because I don't want you to take my job.)

Milder May

Right on cue, a warm up arrives for the first weekend of May! With a southerly wind, the shoreline will be cooler than inland areas for the next several days. There is also a chance for an isolated shower both days this weekend. But most towns will stay dry with temperatures climbing through the 60s on Saturday and 70s on Sunday! The warm up peaks on Monday with high temperatures approaching 80 degrees. Showers return on Tuesday followed by cooler temperatures for the rest of next week.

Tonight: Partly cloudy.  Low: 40s.

Tomorrow: Partly cloudy, milder. Chance for an isolated afternoon shower.  High: low 60s inland, mid 60s to around 70 degrees for the shoreline.

Sunday: Mostly sunny and warm with the chance for an isolated pop up shower in the afternoon. High: low to mid 70s inland, near 70 for the shoreline.

Monday: Abundant sunshine, warm. High: mid 70s to around 80 degrees.

Tuesday: A mix of clouds and sun with showers developing. High: low to middle 70s.

Wednesday: Partly cloudy, not as warm. High: upper 60s to lower 70s.
