Rain to become more widespread as day continues

Posted: Updated:

An unsettled weather pattern won't be budging anytime soon.

Meteorologists Mark Dixon and Scot Haney said more showers will develop on Wednesday as the day continues.

"So far [Wednesday], any steady rain has been confined to far northwestern Connecticut where around a quarter of an inch has fallen," Dixon said. "Elsewhere, it's been damp with areas of drizzle and light rain."

Throughout the afternoon hours, the rain will become more widespread and steadier.

Temperatures are expected to peak in the mid-50s.

"[Thursday] and Friday, we expect more of the same as the unsettled conditions continue," Dixon said.

"We can expect periods of rain and drizzle," Haney said. "A light east or northeasterly flow could hold daytime highs to the 50s once again."

The weekend doesn't appear to be that much better.

"While there could be an interval of sunshine, clouds will be prevalent with on-and-off chances for rain both days," Dixon said.

The Race in the Park in New Britain may be wet, according to Dixon.

For Mother's Day on Sunday, a cold front should arrive and with it, another round of showers.

As of Wednesday's forecast, it looked like the front will pass through around midday or during the early afternoon hours.

Before that happens, temps should rise into the 60s.

"A northwesterly flow will usher in drier, cooler air Sunday night," Haney said. "Temperatures will dip into the 30s and low 40s by dawn Monday."
