Bruce provides a Wednesday evening forecast update

Posted: Updated:

Hi everyone!

We have a couple of weather issues between now and the end of the workweek. First of all, areas of dense fog could form tonight. The ground is wet from today's rain and there is plenty of moisture trapped in the lower levels of the atmosphere. If the clouds thin out or break up, dense fog will form. If the clouds hang in there, dense fog will not be a problem.

More rain is in the forecast for tomorrow. 0.1" to 0.5" should do it. There is also the possibility of minor coastal flooding along the western coast of Connecticut (Fairfield County) from mid-morning through early afternoon.

Friday will be dry, but windy. Westerly winds will likely gust to 30-40 mph and that means a lot of leaves will be blowing around. I am certainly not going to attempt raking that day!

Beyond this week, we can look forward to a dry weekend. However, it will be windy and chilly, especially on Saturday.

Next week is going to be very interesting to say the least. Severe thunderstorms and tornadoes are likely in the Midwest and Gulf States with cold and snow in portions of the Plains and Rocky Mountain States. Meanwhile, our weather in Connecticut will be anything but stormy. In fact, we'll enjoy a nice warm-up that will send temperatures up to 60 degrees or higher by Tuesday and Wednesday!
