Dear Sun: We Missed You. Love, Rachel

This is the grand finale.  One more round of rain tonight will get followed by relief from this soggy and gray weather pattern.  Some of the showers contain locally heavy downpours with rainfall rates approaching an inch per hour. The National Weather Service has issued a Flood Advisory for Hartford and Tolland Counties until 8:00 PM with the chance for some minor poor drainage flooding. Behind the rain, skies will clear and the humidity will drop. Patchy dense fog is possible again tonight with temperatures dropping through the 50s.

Then…hello sunshine!  We need a day like tomorrow to preserve our sanity. Early fog will break for sun and temperatures will soar up to 80 degrees inland. #LastBeachDay2012? Enjoy because the weather will start to head downhill Saturday. The morning isn't too bad with some sun to start. But clouds will increase with the chance for a shower in the afternoon as another cold front approaches.  High temperatures will climb into the low 70s. Most of the day looks dry so there is no need to cancel your outdoor plans.  But Sunday is a different story.  The second half of the weekend looks like a wash-out with a period of cold rain. There is a chance the rain holds off until the afternoon. Sun returns Columbus Day!

First frost in spots early next week?
