Record Rain Today

The weekend looks picturesque after Friday’s deluge. Windsor Locks ended up setting a new daily rainfall record with 3.79”. That’s nothing compared to parts of Litchfield county. Torrington received over 5” in 24 hours. But the rain has moved on and the humidity will follow. The next couple of days look fantastic with lots of sun and low humidity. Sunday will be just a few degrees cooler than Saturday.  The next chance for showers is Tuesday.  Otherwise next week looks dry and quiet.

Tonight: Few lingering showers. Clearing. Low: 60s

Tomorrow: Turning less humid and more comfortable as the day progresses. A bit warmer than recent days. Mostly sunny. High: Low 80s inland, near 80 for the shore.

Sunday: Sunny and dry with low humidity. Fantastic late summer weekend! Low 80s inland, near 80 for the shoreline.

Monday: Sunny to partly sunny and pleasant. Clouds increasing late in the day. High: Low to mid 80s.

Tuesday: Mostly cloudy with showers developing, mainly in the afternoon and evening. Rain could be heavy at times. Humid. High: Low 80s.

Wednesday: Turning noticeably less humid and sunny. Great stretch of weather right through the end of next week! High: Near 80.
