Well, it’s certainly been a while. As most of you know, I’ve been away for the better part of the summer in the Adirondacks with extremely limited access to the internet, and Tim has been recovering from losing his father in early July, and as a result, we have failed to keep this website as active as you and us would like. For that, we apologize. We thank you for staying loyal to us during our absence, and look forward to providing you with Connecticut’s leading weather coverage on a much more regular interval from here forward. As a reminder, our standard posting schedule, which we should be able to maintain from here on out, is two to three times weekly during the “off-season”(April-November), and daily during the winter season(November-April), with additional updates as needed during times of severe weather or impending snowstorm. Also, keep an eye out for a retouching of the website in the next few weeks; nothing major, but a reorganization to make finding our forecasts quicker and to remove some unnecessary clutter.
For tomorrow(Tuesday), we’re expecting to see our only significant chance of precipitation for the period as a frontal passage moves through overnight tonight into tomorrow, bringing some weak instability and a chance to set off some scattered showers and thunderstorms. While widespread severe storms are not expected, should the right conditions present themselves, as some guidance suggests it might, we could see a few isolated severe thunderstorms, with hail and strong winds being the primary hazards in any storms that do develop. Storms should move out by the afternoon in western areas, while eastern areas could see chances lingering into the evening and overnight hours. As far as temperatures go, we’re looking at slightly above normal highs in the low to mid 80s.
Moving towards the weekend, we begin to see warmer air build back in and humidity increase slightly, although remaining quite a bit below the uncomfortable levels of last week. We’ll generally see highs in the mid to perhaps upper 80s, along with mostly sunny skies, intermingled with perhaps a passing shower or two and perhaps a thunderstorm, especially towards the back end of the weekend. No widespread precipitation appears in the forecast for the weekend at this point however.
That just about wraps it up for this update, so thank you for reading and for your patience over the summer! Look for another update Wednesday or Thursday with a more detailed weekend forecast.
