That's the sound of me falling asleep while forecasting. This week looks really quiet!

A leftover shower or storm is possible in spots as a cold front approaches. The front will wash the moisture out of the air, allowing a refreshing fall-like air mass to move in.  High temps will stay in the 70s the next couple of days with blue skies and chilly mornings.  After the hottest month on record (July), August is off to a cooler start.  Temperatures are currently running 1-2.5 degrees below average. That trend will continue through the weekend.  Then next week the pattern will slowly change allowing some summer warmth and humidity to move back into Connecticut.  You will need to water the lawn and garden yourself with a long stretch of dry weather.

Tonight: A leftover shower, clearing. Low: 57-63

Tomorrow: Partly to mostly sunny. Turning less humid and breezy. Northwest wind 10 to 20 mph. High temperatures in the mid to upper 70s.

Thursday: A fall feel to the air with very low humidity, sunshine and colbalt blue skies. High temperatures in the mid 70s to near 80 degrees.

Friday: Mostly sunny, dry and pleasant. High temperatures in the upper 70s and low 80s.

Saturday: Mostly sunny, turning a bit more humid, especially turning the afternoon. High temperatures in the low 80s

Sunday: A mix of sun and clouds. High temperatures in the low to mid 80s.
