Frost advisory issued for parts of CT

Posted: Updated:
HARTFORD, CT (WFSB) -

This week finally features several day in a row of sunshine. However, that doesn't mean at least one night will be any warmer.

A frost advisory was issued for Hartford Country from midnight on Tuesday until 8 a.m. 

A frost advisory goes into effect early Tuesday morning for northern Fairfield, northern Middlesex, northern New Haven, northern New London, Tolland and Windham counties. Those advisories start at 2 a.m. and lasts until 8 a.m., according to the National Weather Service.

After highs that could reach into the 70s on Monday, things will cool off as the state approaches the overnight hours. However, it won't be for long.

"[Tuesday] will feature a chilly start in the upper 30s and lower 40s, then highs near 70," said meteorologist Mark Dixon.

Dixon also said Tuesday would be a dry day, but clouds will increase as it continues.

"Rain may come very close to [southwestern Connecticut] later in the day," Dixon said.

Wednesday should be warmer with highs perhaps reaching 80 degrees by Thursday.

Then, storms could roll in to wrap up the week.

"We'll end the week with a storm system that will bring rain and possibly thunderstorms on Friday," Dixon said.

As far as the weekend goes, Dixon said some showers will be around on Saturday, but they'll be isolated.

On Sunday, it should be cooler, breezy and dry with highs back in the low 60s.
