HARTFORD, CT (WFSB) -- The dreary weather continued into Memorial Day, but rain moved out earlier in the morning.

"Coldest high temperature" records were broken in both Hartford, 50 degrees, and Bridgeport, 52 degrees, on both Saturday and Sunday.

The breeze is making it feel even colder.

"We also received 3 to 4-plus inches cumulatively of rain in many areas through the state," said meteorologist Lorin Richardson.

A chance for an isolated shower remained for Monday afternoon.

"[Monday] we will see mostly dry conditions," Richardson said. "A spot shower is possible in the afternoon but there is great potential to also see some sunshine later [Monday] afternoon/early evening."

The average temperature for Memorial Day is 76. This time around, it's only expected to get up into the 60s.

Tuesday, however, temperatures are expected to bounce back into the 70s.

"Closer to where we should be this time of year," Richardson said. 

There will also be partial sunshine.

Temperatures creep closer to 80 degrees on Wednesday, but with a chance for afternoon showers.

"We have cloudy conditions and potential for storms/showers in the afternoon for both Thursday and Friday," Richardson said.
