Well, we had enough clearing, in tandem with a calm wind early this morning that allowed temperatures to drop into the lower 40s. In fact, at Bradley Int'l Airport, the record low for this date of 42 was tied (previously in 1998 and 1993).
We’ll see more clouds than sun today, as of the Noon hour scattered areas of light rain were moving across CT… temps will be warmer than yesterday, 70-75.
Tonight there will be a chance for showers. Tomorrow, there will be another chance for showers and possibly a thunderstorm, especially late afternoon.
Thursday will be dry, bright and warm… 80+
Friday and Saturday, while not a washout there will be a chance for a shower, 80+. Sunday will be cooler, but dry/bright.
We started the morning out on another chilly note. Temps bottomed out in the upper 30's and low 40's. We'll see some sunshine early ... but overall, clouds increase as the day progresses with a warm front heading toward Connecticut. While most of the day will be dry, a late day isolated shower can't be ruled out. Highs will be in the low 70s, so a few degrees warmer than yesterday, but still a tad below normal. (Normal high: 76)
TOMORROW AND THURSDAY...
Wednesday, as a cold front approaches and then moves through the region, scattered showers and thunderstorms will be possible - especially during the afternoon/evening hours. Also, temperatures will be warmer: mid-70s at the coast, near 80 inland.
Thursday is looking like a stellar day. We'll see temps top out above 80 inland and in the upper 70s along the coastline. Furthermore, the sky should feature ample sunshine and the humidity will be lower.
FRIDAY AND THE WEEKEND...
We'll end the week on a warm note, with temperatures inland exceeding 80 and in the upper 70s at the shoreline (humidity will increase a bit, too). A storm system will be in the vicinity, so given this we can't rule out an isolated shower Friday. This also goes for Saturday. Neither day should be a washout. Behind a cold front, Sunday appears to bring sunshine, lower humidity and highs in the mid-70s.
As of now, Monday should be a dry, bright day with seasonable temperatures.
*Yesterday also marked the official beginning of the Atlantic Hurricane Season. Keep in mind, we've already had 2 named storms... and as of this afternoon, we now have newly classified Tropical Depression #3 spinning over the Bay of Campeche. If this area of low pressure were to intensify, reaching tropical storm status, it would take on the name Cristobal.
