Perfection The Next Two Days

Take a deep breath.  The humidity of recent days has been replaced by a nice refreshing and comfortable air mass.   As an added bonus, high pressure will deliver wall to wall sunshine the next couple of days. Clouds will increase Thursday with the chance for showers sneaking into western areas late-day.  A cluster of storms moving out of the Gulf of Mexico will play a major role in the Friday/Saturday forecast.  Right now it’s not looking pretty as a wave of low pressure rides up the eastern seaboard providing  waves of heavy rain persisting into the start of the weekend.  It’s Monday.  So there’s plenty of time for the forecast to change. But I would rather play the forecast on the pessimistic side so you’re mentally prepared for half the weekend to get washed out.

Tonight: Early downpours, then clearing, less humid and cooler. Lows: 45-54

Tomorrow: Noticeably less humid and not as mild as recent days. Abundant sunshine. Northwest wind at 10 to 20 miles an hour. High: Low to mid 70s

Wednesday: Mostly sunny, dry and pleasant. Nice refreshing air mass. Northwest wind 5 to 10 mph. High: Mid 70s

Thursday: Sunny start with clouds increasing during the afternoon. Showers possible in far western Connecticut late in the afternoon. High: mid 70s

Friday:  Cloudy and cooler with periods of rain and drizzle. Rain could come down heavy at times. High: Upper 60s

Saturday: Periods of rain, heavy at times. We'll need to watch this slow moving storm for the potential for flash flooding.
