The storm system responsible for our recent rain and wind is center near the New Hampshire – Maine border, slowly moving away from Connecticut.  On the back edge, we’ve seen scattered showers all day and a gusty wind (at times to 40+ mph).  This evening, showers should diminish and the wind should begin to subside.  It will be cool, with temperatures in the upper 40s and lower 50s.

Overnight, the cloud cover should erode and temperatures bottom out between 40 and 45 by daybreak.


Tomorrow will still feature a breeze, but the wind will not be as intense as high pressure builds into the region from the west.  Under abundant sunshine, expect highs between 55 and 60 – several degrees below average.


The weekend forecast is still on track for some pretty stellar autumn weather!  Under a clear sky with a diminishing wind, temperatures by Saturday morning could dip to frosty levels inland.  That afternoon, with ample sunshine, temperatures should rebound well into the 60s!  Then, Sunday will be a few degrees milder.  Meanwhile, a tropical system that is currently located over the Gulf of Mexico is forecast to move over the southeastern US and then off the Mid-Atlantic coast.  Late Sunday it should pass offshore from Southern New England, but close enough to perhaps spread some clouds over Connecticut.


Early next week, Monday looks to be mild with a mix of sun and clouds.   Then, chances for rain increase Tuesday as a storm system moves through the region. Wednesday and Thursday, as of now appear to be dry and seasonable.

It looks like two trees fell on Rainbow Road in Windsor, one of them on a car. I haven’t heard of any injuries. The car looks to be totaled.
