Weekend Warm Up

Forecast Discussion:

Saturday will offer a little relief from the bitter cold.  Temperatures will approach 40 degrees which is still well below average for this time of year.  A warming trend will get underway on Sunday. A few showers will touch off late Saturday night with the arrival of the milder air.  For most of the state this will not be an issue. But for some towns in the northwest hills, temps could drop close to freezing creating a few slippery spots.

Sunday is dry and milder with high temperatures around 50 degrees!  Rain arrives Sunday night into Monday morning, some heavy at times. Rain tapers to scattered showers by Monday afternoon.  Temps will soar into the low 60s! Cooler air arrives by the middle of next week. 

The same front that will bring back the cold on Wednesday will also be a point of concern as a wave of low pressure develops along it.   Depending on how close to the coast the storm develops, Connecticut could be looking at rain/snow.  It’s too soon to say for sure. But we’ll keep an extra close eye on it, especially as Wednesday is one of the biggest travel days of the year!

Concerns For Wednesday...Still 5 days away!
