Warm & Windy Start To The Weekend

There is an enhanced risk for brush fires on Saturday with a combination of gusty winds and low humidity. Other than that, Saturday will also be a great day to spend outside.  Temperatures will soar through the 70s and sunshine will mix with a few afternoon clouds. A cold front will come through in the afternoon. Rain will most likely stay north of Connecticut although there is a chance for an isolated shower. Sunday will be noticeably cooler with high temperatures in the 60s inland, 50s for the shoreline. Wet weather returns late Monday with a coastal storm. Rain could come down heavy at times Monday night into Tuesday.  Cooler, unsettled weather sticks around for most of next week.

Tonight: Clearing. Low: 45-50.

A FIRE WEATHER WATCH IS IN EFFECT SATURDAY.  THAT MEANS A HIGHER RISK OF BRUSH FIRES TO FORM AND SPREAD WITH A COMBINATION OF DRY AIR, MILD TEMPS AND GUSTY WINDS.

Tomorrow: Windy and warm. A gusty northwest wind at 10-20 mph. Higher gusts up to 35 mph. High: 68-75.

Sunday: Sunshine mixing with late day clouds. Cooler. High: 60-65 inland, 55-60 for the shoreline.


Monday: Rain developing, some heavy at times late Monday or Monday night. Cooler. High: 48-53.

Tuesday: Chance for some lingering morning showers. Clouds break for some late day sunshine. High: 60-65.

Wednesday: A mix of clouds and sun, cooler. High: 54-58.
