Another quiet forecast on tap for the most part(and thus a short discussion tonight), as the strong eastern ridge that has been anchored over our area for the last several days looks to remain locked into place through the forecast period, resulting in generally calm and warm weather, with well above normal temperatures expected throughout the period and any sign of wintry weather far away on the horizon.
A coastal storm passes to our southeast tomorrow, resulting in some clouds across the state and perhaps a chance of some sprinkles or showers across far SE sections of the state, but otherwise, no substantial precipitation chances appear in the forecast through the end of the week, as the previously mentioned ridge prevails and strong high pressure persists over the area. Some sprinkles on Friday are possible from another system passing to our southeast, but overall, a quiet pattern persists until early next week, where guidance suggests a storm cutting to our west and bringing a round of rainfall to the area. More details on that system to come as we move through the week, but as of now, I don't see any threat of wintry weather from it.
Tuesday: A chance of showers in SE portions of the state, otherwise, mostly cloudy, with highs in the mid 40s. Chance of precipitation is 30% in SECT and 10% elsewhere.
Wednesday: Partly sunny, with highs in the upper 40s to around 50.
Thursday: Partly sunny, with highs in the low to mid 50s.
Friday: Partly cloudy, with highs in the mid to upper 50s.
Saturday: Partly cloudy, with highs in the mid to upper 50s.
Sunday: Mostly cloudy, with highs in the lower 60s.
Monday: A chance of rain, otherwise, cloudy, with highs in the mid to upper 50s. Chance of rain is 60%.
Enjoy this warm weather while it lasts and thanks for reading Southern Connecticut Weather!
