Warm Again Tomorrow! Then Cooling Down.

60 degrees in December?  This isn’t record breaking warmth.  In fact, Windsor Locks was a full 10 degrees shy of the record of 67 degrees set in 2009.  Bridgeport got a little closer, just 4 degrees shy of the record set in ’09.  Still, there’s no denying this isn’t typical December weather.  Temperatures are running 10-20 degrees above average for this time of year.

Tomorrow will be just as mild as today, minus all the sunshine.  Then prepare for another cool down.

Tuesday morning will start off cloudy with patchy fog and drizzle in spots. Clouds will break for limited sun in the afternoon with a mild breeze out of the southwest.  High temperatures will range between 55 and 60 degrees. A cold front will trigger some showers early Wednesday, followed by clearing.  Cooler air will slowly leak in Wednesday with temperatures starting in the 50s at breakfast and ending in the 30s by dinner.  Bring a jacket to work and school with you so you’re prepared!

40s are in the forecast for the rest of the week with sunshine Thursday and Friday.  Showers are possible at times this weekend but the timing is not clear yet.

BTW...long range forecast is not looking good for a white Christmas.
