Slow Improvement Thursday

Rainfall totals have been all over the place today. The Hebron/Colchester area scored the jackpot with 1.5-2”+ rainfall today with a heavy rain band that set up and wouldn’t move. But many other towns scored less than a half an inch.  The heaviest rain is over.  But periods of rain and drizzle will continue through tonight before slowly tapering off.

After a soggy start to October, the weather will slowly improve Thursday. A lingering shower is possible in spots early, especially for eastern Connecticut. After a dreary morning, clouds will slowly break for some sunshine. But the clearing process will happen painfully slow. Some areas may not see sun until late in the day. For that reason, temperatures will remain in the 60s. Friday will be milder courtesy of more sunshine. The dry spell doesn’t last long. Rain returns Saturday.

Tonight: Periods of rain and drizzle. Low: 55.

Tomorrow: A leftover shower in spots during the morning. Clouds slowly break for some sun in the afternoon. High temperatures in the middle 60s.

Friday: Sunshine mixing with clouds. High temperatures in the mid 60s to around 70 degrees.

Saturday: Periods of rain, some could be locally heavy. Rain tapering off late day and at night. High temperatures in the middle to upper 60s.

Sunday: Cool despite plenty of sunshine. High temperatures in the lower to middle 60s.

Monday: A sunny start with clouds increasing as the day progresses. High temperatures in the upper 60s to around 70 degrees.
