Record Challenging Cold

Arctic cold helped push the last storm south of New England, keeping most of the state dry.  But tonight into tomorrow morning we’ll pay the price with record challenging cold. The records being threatened stand at 2 degrees for Windsor Locks and 5 degrees in Bridgeport, both set in 1950.  It’s a close call!  Morning sunshine will mix in with afternoon clouds on Tuesday.  Some slight moderation is possible this week with temperatures climbing into the 40s by Friday into the weekend. But there is no extended warm up in sight.
Slow moderation. But that trend doesn't continue into next week.
Tonight: Clearing, cold.  Wind diminishing, becoming calm. Low: -3 to 7.

Tomorrow: A sunny and bitterly cold start. Increasing clouds. High temperatures in the middle to upper 20s.

Wednesday: Increasing clouds. Chance for an afternoon flurry or snow shower, mainly late day and at night. High temperatures in the lower 30s.

Thursday: Mostly cloudy, chance for a snow shower or flurry. Not as cold. High temperatures in the middle to upper 30s.

Friday: Partly to mostly sunny, not as cold as recent days. High temperatures near average, around the 40 degree mark.

Saturday: Sunshine mixing in with afternoon clouds. Milder. High temperature in the lower to middle 40s. Chance for snow showers or a period of snow Saturday night into Sunday morning.
