It is another beautiful day in Connecticut, with crisp morning conditions and mostly clear skies. Enjoy today, because the week ahead looks mostly unsettled with a seesaw in temperatures.
Yesterday was a near record warm day, with highs in the low 80s in central Connecticut! Today looks beautiful and warm, but slightly “cooler”. Expect highs in the mid to upper 70s inland with maybe a spot 80, with most of the shoreline a few degrees cooler. It’s a great day to get out to a park.
Tomorrow is a bit of a transition day, with Connecticut mostly dry and slightly cooler, but dealing with increasing clouds and a little humidity as a strong cold front advances. I won’t rule out a chance of showers, but I think the rain doesn’t begin until early Tuesday.
Breaking the monotony of warm and dry, a strong cold front starts moving through the region by Tuesday. This will be a potent and slow moving event, and I currently believe that this may be a significant one for Connecticut.
Thursday starts off a bit unsettled as the cold front remains slow to fully push off, but we should see clearing as the day progresses. We start getting a look of fall, with more seasonable temperatures.
Currently, Friday and Saturday look great, with sunny skies and seasonable conditions. It should be a nice start to the next weekend! I am currently hedging lower on temperatures, but we could be seeing temperatures warmer than normal again. Either way, we’ll be watching another cold front to the west to see how strong it is and whether we see a taste of fall or winter as we roll into November.
