A cool/breezy Monday, then warming up...

Posted: Updated:
HARTFORD, CT (WFSB) -

AFTERNOON UPDATE...

Temperatures early this afternoon will range from 45-50, then drop through the 40s into the 30s by early evening.  A northwesterly breeze will make it feel a bit cooler.  Lingering cloudiness will erode, giving way to a clear sky.  

Tomorrow won't be as windy as high pressure dominates, this also translates to abundant sunshine.  By Wednesday, with high pressure moving offshore and our wind becoming more southwesterly, temperatures should peak in the 50s!  Thursday will be a bit cooler but still near normal for late-November.  Our next chance for rain comes Friday morning as a weak front  pushes through Southern New England. 

As of now, the weekend appears to be dry... highs will be near 50 Saturday, then several degrees cooler on Sunday.

A Chilly Day Today

It's a clear and cool start to last week of November.  Once that sun comes up at 6:55 this morning, it won't go away until it sets at 4:24 this afternoon.  High pressure will move into the region from the Great Lakes, offering the relatively quiet weather.  With this area of high pressure firmly rooted overhead tonight, you can expect a calm wind and clear sky, which is going to render a very cold night.  Temps are expected to drop into the low-20s for inland sections of the state, mid-20s along the Shoreline.

Another Cool Day Tomorrow/A Warmer Day Wednesday

Warmer weather will return midweek, but tomorrow is still going to be seasonably chilly.  Under mostly sunny skies, you can expect temps to be in the mid to upper 40s.  

Wednesday will be slightly warmer!   If you're looking for a nice mild day to put up those Christmas lights, this could just be the day for you.  Under mostly sunny skies, we're expecting the temps to move into the mid, if not the upper 50s across the state!  How nice is that going to feel?!  

It's going to get a little cooler on Thursday, but at least the sky remains mostly sunny. 

Wet Friday and Saturday, dry Sunday

The end of the week may prove wet.  An area of low pressure is projected to form over the coast off the DelMarVa coast and rapidly strengthen.  This storm will send wind and rain into New England Friday, with lingering showers Saturday morning.

Sunday will be dry and seasonable.  An area of high pressure will build into the region, offering up the sunshine.  After lows near freezing, highs will reach to near 50 degrees.
