Today was the warmest day of the year, and the warmest day since September 10th of last year! That’s when the high temperature was 83 degrees at Bradley International Airport. Today’s high was at least 83 degrees. In many locations, the temperature topped 80 degrees today.


Sunset this evening is at 8:08. We are going to gain another 22 minutes of daylight between now and the first day of summer. It is going to be a very pleasant evening with temperatures falling back through the 70s then into the 60s. Overnight lows will be in the 50s. The sky will be partly cloudy to clear, and patchy fog may form before dawn.


Tomorrow will be even warmer than today. Temperatures are expected to rise into the mid and upper 80s over portions of interior Connecticut. Beach temperatures will range from the mid-70s to the lower 80s. The coolest weather will be in coastal sections of New London County. With a weak area of high pressure in place, the wind will be light and variable.

Tomorrow night will be partly cloudy and mild with lows 55-60.


High pressure will remain the dominant weather feature in New England. Thursday will be dry with partly sunny skies. Friday will be partly sunny as well, although a few isolated or widely scattered showers and thunderstorm may pop up during the afternoon. Both days will be warm, but probably not as warm as tomorrow. We are forecasting highs in the low and middle 80s. The nights will be mild with lows in the 50s to near 60.


The risk of showers and thunderstorms will be greater over the weekend, but dry weather will prevail most of the time. At this point, we believe the best chance for showers will be on Saturday. Saturday should be partly to mostly cloudy with highs 75-80. Sunday should be partly sunny and a little warmer with highs 80-85. A few isolated showers are possible in the afternoon.

The air will turn a little cooler Sunday night. Temperatures will dip into the 50s.


High pressure will build southward out of Canada, and it will bring dry, refreshing weather on Monday! The sky will be mostly sunny, and highs will be in the 70s. Monday night will be nice and cool with lows in the upper 40s and 50s.

Warmer air will take another run at New England by Tuesday. The result will be a partly to mostly cloudy sky and perhaps a few stray showers. Highs will be in the 70s, but Wednesday should be breezy and much warmer.

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.
