Early Warning Weather

Frost advisory issued for part of CT tonight

Posted: Updated:

It’s a good idea to cover up those plants outside tonight, as frost is possible for parts of the state.

Chief Meteorologist Bruce DePrest said the combination of clear skies, light winds, and dry air means “we are in for a chilly night.”

Temperatures will drop into the 40s Monday evening, and overnight lows could be in the 30s and even lower for the normally colder locations.

“Most of the state is under a frost advisory from 2 a.m. until 9 a.m.,” DePrest said. “Southern portions of Fairfield, New Haven, Middlesex, and New London counties are not included in the advisory. Just across the border, a freeze warning is effect for Berkshire and Hampden counties in Massachusetts.”

Tuesday will be a bright and beautiful, but the morning will be chilly. Temperatures will rise into the middle 60s during the afternoon.

DePrest said “the normal, or average, high for Oct. 11 is 65 degrees.”

We’re in for a brief warm up on Wednesday, with afternoon temperatures in the range of 65 and 70 degrees.

It will be another sunny day.

A cold front will approach New England on Thursday, and could send a few showers our way in the late afternoon and evening, DePrest said.

“However, any rainfall will be spotty and light. A southwesterly flow in advance of the front will likely push temperatures up to 70 degrees if not a little higher,” he said.
