The Chill Eases

This morning Bradley International Airport recorded a low temperature of 0 degrees.  That’s the coldest temperature recorded in that location since February…2011! Two years ago! Cold, yes.  But Bradley didn’t break the record of  -3 degrees set in 2001 and 2008.

The heart of the cold air is moving out.  Tonight will be 10-15 degrees milder than last night. Inland lows will drop into the upper teens and low 20s.  The shoreline will bottom out in the mid 20s.

Winds will shift out of the southwest tomorrow bringing relief from the deep chill with high temperatures returning to the 30s. A storm moving through Canada will bring some snow showers to northern New England.  But we’ll be too far south here in Connecticut with just a few extra clouds. Bright sunshine starts off the weekend on Saturday.  But a fast moving disturbance will bring back the clouds and the chance for a few flurries on Sunday.
