Wet weather sticks around Thursday evening

Posted: Updated:
HARTFORD, CT (WFSB) -

The second round of rain is expected to stick around for the remainder of Thursday.

The day started out with areas of fog and drizzle, but that quickly changed to waves of rain.

Chief Meteorologist Bruce DePrest said the last time we saw a decent amount of sunshine was on Monday.

"So far today, much of the state has received 0.1 inch to 0.25 inches of rain," DePrest said.

A few more showers are expected on Thursday night, and some could bring a moderate to heavy downpour.

There will be some partial clearing overnight, and a westerly breeze will begin to dry out the roads.

Temperatures are expected to be in the 40s by Friday morning.

It’s back to brighter and drier weather on Friday, however a strong westerly wind will gust to 30 to 40 mile per hour wind, which means leaves will certainly be blowing around.

Temperatures are expected to be in the 50s to near 60 degrees, but they will steadily drop in the late afternoon and evening as colder air finally settles in."

By Friday night, temperatures will bottom out in the 30s to near 40 degrees.

Saturday will be partly to mostly sunny, and there will be a noticeable chill in the air.
