Showers End, Summer Preview Friday

Friday will have an early summer feel with early fog and clouds breaking for sunshine. 80 degrees is within reach for some inland towns. A cold front will slowly approach Connecticut on Saturday with a band of showers and thunderstorms, some of which could produce heavy rainfall. Right now the day doesn’t look like a complete wash out. But with off and on showers, keep an umbrella nearby. On Mother’s Day, a dry northwest flow takes over with a mix of bright sun and clouds. A shot of cooler air is slated for Connecticut early next week, with highs in the 60s, early morning lows in the 30s and 40s. Scattered frost is possible on Monday and or Tuesday morning.
