Cool But Mainly Dry Weekend

This weekend will be cool by April standards. But it could be a lot worse. A winter storm will just miss Connecticut, bringing accumulating snow to parts of New Jersey and Pennsylvania Saturday. After some morning sun, clouds will take over by Saturday afternoon as the storm gets closer. There is a chance for a rain or snow shower in spots (especially in southern Connecticut). But I think most towns will stay dry. The sun will shine for the UConn Huskies parade and rally in Hartford on Sunday with temperatures in the mid-40s.

There is no BIG warm-up in sight. But at least temperatures will get closer to average heading into next week, along with some April Showers. Baby steps towards a return to spring weather!

Forecast Details: 

Tonight: Partly cloudy, quite cold. Low: 25-35.

Saturday: Partly cloudy, chance for a late day rain/snow shower. But it’s still too soon to say what impact (if any) from a nearby storm. High: Mid-upper 40s.

Sunday: Mostly sunny, chilly for April 10th. High: Mid-upper 40s.

Monday: Mostly cloudy, chance for a passing shower. High: Near 50.

Tuesday: Mild start with rain and wind. Some clearing in the afternoon. High: Low-mid 50s.

Wednesday: Partly sunny, brisk and cooler. High: 50s. Thursday: Mostly sunny. High: 50s.
