Winter Returns Saturday

The last time Hartford hit 63 degrees was on November 13th, 2010. Take a look at some of the high temperatures across the state!

Hartford: 63
Waterbury: 61
Danbury: 59
New London: 54
Windsor Locks: 58

No records were broken today. The record in Windsor Locks is 68 degrees. The record for Bridgeport is 60 degrees, both set back in 1981.

Get ready to go from spring back to winter reality. A powerful cold front will whisk away the warm air and replace it with cooler, windy conditions. Winds will howl out of the west on Saturday from 15 to 25 mph with gusts up to 50 mph. Skies will be partly sunny with some flurries or a snow shower possible, mainly in northern Connecticut. Sunday will be sunny but breezy with temperatures in the 30s. Snow/mix is possible late Sunday after midnight into President’s Day with a coating to few inches of snow possible.

Whale Bowl forecast: Partly cloudy, windy and cold. Mid to upper 20s during the game with wind chills in the teens.
