After a day of light to moderate rain and raw conditions, the backside of the storm left some lingering showers and windy conditions. While temperatures themselves weren't too bad, upper 30s inland to 40s at the shore, gusty winds have created windchills in the 20s. Currently across the state, clouds are slowly clearing out with partly cloudy skies in western Connecticut while mostly cloudy skies rule in eastern Connecticut. Gradually clear skies will move in and temperatures will drop through the 30s at the shore, while mid 20 degree temperatures will be observed inland. Although clouds will begin to dissipate overnight, the winds will remain gusty, with temperatures falling so will the wind chills, some inland locations will feel like they are in the teens.
Looking ahead to Monday morning, winds will gradually die down, but there will be a stiff breeze at the bus stops tomorrow morning, so make sure to bundle up the kids. The gusty winds should become more manageable, along with the temperatures by the middle of the morning. Also clear, sunny conditions should be prevalent in the morning, so no worries about precipitation. As we head through the rest of your Monday, temperatures should really rebound, back into the low to mid 40s statewide, with sunshine and light winds, tomorrow should not be a bad day to be outside at all. Clear conditions look to continue through early tomorrow evening. Temperatures look to fall back only slightly into the upper 20s and lower 30s statewide.
As mentioned before, the weather for this week does look rather quiet, but it will also be quite chilly, especially for this time of the year from later Tuesday through Friday. On Wednesday, it looks as if most of the state stays in the low 30s, with some of the cooler, elevated spots inland not even making it into the 30s. Sunny, clear conditions will be observed through the evening, so despite it being chilly it looks as if there won't be any winter weather to contend with. Skies do look to remain clear through Wednesday evening with temperatures dropping back through the teens statewide. Thursday looks like even more of the same, clear skies but slightly warmer temperatures, up into the mid 30s during the day and 20s at night.
