Still Feeling Like Winter Tomorrow

Winds will slowly diminish tonight. Notice I said slowly. You may still hear the window rattling before you go to bed tonight. By tomorrow morning, near record cold is possible with temperatures in the teens.  The record for Windsor Locks is 16 degrees set in 1960. The record in Bridgeport is 20 degrees set in 2001 and 1966.

Even though we’ll get rid of the wind tomorrow, you will still need a heavier coat on Thursday with temperatures running 10-15 degrees below average. Spring will try to make a comeback on Friday with highs in the 50s. But the milder air also comes with lots of clouds and a shower or two.  The weekend starts of dry and mild. Rain will develop Saturday afternoon, coming down heavy at times. As cooler air returns on Sunday rain could change over to a wintry mix.

Tonight: Clearing, near record cold. Low: 9-16.

Tomorrow: Mostly sunny with some high clouds mixing in late day. Remaining cooler than average. High temperatures in the upper 30s and lower 40s.

Friday: Mostly cloudy and milder with the chance for a shower or two. High temperatures in the lower 50s.

Saturday: Mostly cloudy with rain developing in the afternoon, coming down heavy at times through the evening. High temperatures in the lower to middle 50s.

Sunday: Rain continues through midday, may end as a wintry mix. Cooler than recent days. High temperatures in the lower to middle 40s.

Monday: Mostly sunny, pleasant. High temperatures in the lower 50s.
