Fog to a Shower Chance to a Drop in Temperature...

Posted: Updated:
HARTFORD, CT (WFSB) -

12:45 UPDATE

In a matter or hours, thick fog broke and now we are enjoying partly cloudy skies.  Temperatures have responded well to the clearing, with readings in the mid-60s now.  our forecast for 64-70 looks to be about right!  After 2 PM, plan on showers to arrive.  They have been rather weak as they have been crossing through Upstate New York.  Some model runs suggest a slight enhancement as they move into the state -- but even if there is, it would not amount to much more than a tenth of an inch or two of extra liquid.

TODAY…

We've got some fog out there for you this morning, so please be careful driving around.  After the morning fog burns off, anticipate a mix of sun and clouds.  Temperatures will be mild, warming into the 65 to 70 degree range, prior to the arrival of a cold front.  As the front nears and pushes through the region during the afternoon and evening hours, it will likely produce isolated to scattered showers.  We're looking at a situation where some towns may briefly receive some rain, while many others will be dry (unfortunate, given we really need some rain as deficits continue to grow).

FRIDAY…

In the wake of the front, high pressure again builds into the region as we close out the week.  As this happens, much cooler air filters in on a northwesterly wind under a mostly sunny sky.  Highs on Friday will be in the lower to mid-60s.  

THE WEEKEND…

Saturday and Sunday are looking quite nice, especially by autumn New England standards.  High pressure will dominate, bringing a clear sky and a calmer wind.  Both mornings will be chilly with lows in the mid to upper 30s.  Saturday afternoon will feature highs in the upper 50s and lower 60s; then Sunday, expect a milder afternoon with temperatures about 5 degrees warmer than Saturday.  Clouds will increase late in the weekend, in advance of a storm system that arrives early next week.

NEXT WEEK…

Monday, as of now, looks to be partly to mostly cloudy with a chance for showers.  Then Tuesday and Wednesday will be dry, with a mix of sun and clouds.  Temperatures will be above average, with highs in the upper 60s and lower 70s (morning lows in the 50s).
