Heat Wave Ended Today!

You made it through the heat wave. Congrats! You have another three days until temperatures get near 90 degrees again. And notice I said NEAR 90. Not 90s, not 100s. Much better.

Temperatures finally got cooler today.

Saturday's High: 98 (Hartford), 96 (Bridgeport, new daily record high)
Sunday's High: 84 (Hartford), 86 (Bridgeport)

Tomorrow the cooldown continues with highs in the upper 70s and low 80s...below average! A southeasterly flow will pump moisture into the air providing partly to mostly cloudy skies. An approaching front could trigger a few showers or thunderstorms, mainly late in the afternoon and tomorrow night. Tuesday morning clouds will give way to sunshine and warmer temperatures. Wednesday will be sunny and comfortable with a brief break from the humidity. Temperatures get back up near 90 Thursday-Saturday.
