Near Record Warmth On Friday! Cooler This Weekend.

Temperatures will soar through the 60s on Friday with near record warmth! The record in Hartford is 70 degrees set back in 1999, the record in Bridgeport is 68 degrees, set back the same year.

Some clouds and patchy fog will start off the morning, with increasing sunshine throughout the day. A wind advisory is in effect until early this evening with gusts up to 40 or 50 mph! Winds will start blowing out of the southwest, then become northerly as a front moves through. The front lacks moisture so we don’t expect any rain. But cooler air will move in behind the front with temperatures returning to the 40s for this weekend. Although that will feel cooler, temperatures will be around average for this time of year!
