Well, it had to come to an end at some point. The omega block that brought us days and days of spring time temperatures and sunny skies has moved on, and in its wake we will return to our more normal pattern.
I, for one, mourn this great loss, but take heart spring fans! We are not going back to the pattern we had earlier this month, which featured endless days of rain and cold.
Tonight through Sunday
The clouds, storms, and rain have dominated the landscape today, as you can see from the above image. Storms passed to our north for the most part, but Connecticut gets in on the rain overnight and into tomorrow morning, as an area of low pressure along an attendant cold front passes through the area.
In heaver downpours, folks could pick up meaningful rain, but overall, this system clears quickly. After some lingering showers and clouds tomorrow morning, we will find a nice Saturday as things clear out.
Sunday is beautiful with everything cleared out and high pressure building in. Temperatures will be around normal, and it should be a great day to get outside and enjoy beautiful Connecticut!
Sadly, the great weather doesn’t last long, as another cold front meanders its way through the region early in the week. Most of Monday looks fine, though we will deal with increasing clouds and shower chances by the time we get to the evening hours.
Much of Tuesday looks wet as the front pushes through. Having some rain would be nice after a dry period, even if it does mean a messy day.
Wednesday through Friday
After the front clears Tuesday night, Wednesday looks like a great day. Sadly, that too doesn’t last long, as high pressure scoots offshore and another potential system make a run at the region. Friday in particular looks like it could be wet, but given how far out we are, this is far from a lock.
All in all, we head back to a seesaw regime, but nothing terribly exciting or out of the ordinary for this time of year. Just the way we (well, most of us) like it!
