The first weekend of spring will get off to a mild start and a cold finish. Saturday will start off mostly cloudy with the chance for a passing shower through midday. Then some clearing will take place in the mid-late afternoon with temperatures soaring into the 50s. Sunday will be about 15 to 20 degrees colder with partly to mostly sunny skies. Mid winter cold arrives Monday.
A monster coastal storm will be the focus of our attention Tuesday and Wednesday. Is it a hit or a miss? This is a high stakes forecast. This storm will have the ability to produce damaging wind and heavy rain/snow, wherever it tracks. After looking at the latest data, it seems a direct hit is becoming less likely as the models have shifted the storm farther east, offshore. Is a jog in the track closer to the coast still possible? Yes. It’s also still possible that the storm continues to trend out to sea and misses. But for now a glancing blow is the most likely scenario, sparing Connecticut the worst of this storm. Keep an eye on the forecast over the weekend as we get a better handle on things.
