Sunday wins the "pick of the weekend" award

Record Warmth was recorded this Black Friday! The Hartford area set a new high temperature record of 67 degrees. That beats the old record of 64 set back in 1976.  It was close for Bridgeport with a high temperature of 60 degrees. But the old record still stands at 62 set in 1999 and 2013.

But this was just a one day warm-up! Temperatures will begin a downward slide this weekend. Sunday is the better of the two weekend days which is great for people traveling home after Thanksgiving weekend.  Saturday will not be a total wash-out. But we’re looking at mainly overcast skies and the chance for a few showers or even a period of light rain. Monday will be the coolest over the next week or so with some towns struggling to hit 40 degrees! Rain moves back in Tuesday and Wednesday.

Forecast Details:

Tonight: Increasing clouds, mild. Low: 45-50.

Tomorrow: Cloudy with the chance for a few showers or a period of light rain. High: 50-55.

Sunday: Becoming mostly sunny.  Cooler than recent days. High: 45-50.

Monday: Cooler despite lots of sunshine. High: 39-43.

Tuesday: Increasing clouds. Becoming cloudy with showers developing in the afternoon. High: 45-50.

Wednesday: Periods of rain likely. High: 50-55.
