Labor Day Is Over...Is Summer Over Too?

Labor Day weekend is considered by many to be the unofficial end to summer, and this week the weather seems to agree! Temperatures stayed in the 60s today with periods of rain, making it feel like fall! Tonight rain will continue at varying rates. But I think the steady heavy rain ends by late tonight.

Wednesday and Thursday will also have a soggy fall feel. BUT the worst is over. The next two days will remain cloudy with scattered showers, drizzle and patchy fog. But I do not expect steady, heavy rain.

Katia’s track remains unchanged. She is still expected to pass between North Carolina and Bermuda, before making a sharp right hand turn out to sea. Katia will bring high waves and dangerous rip currents to ocean facing beaches. But Long Island will protect us from those effects here at Connecticut beaches.
