Today we had a mostly sunny day across the state with temps in the 50s to around 60. Currently temps around Connecticut are pretty uniform, mainly in the mid to upper 40s. There will be mostly clear skies across the state, which usually means radiational cooling and temps dropping like a rock, but with a moderating airmass entering the area, temps will only fall between 3 and 5 degrees from where they are now.
Looking ahead to tomorrow and Wednesday, the previously mentioned warmer airmass will dominate our weather, ushering in temps ranging from the mid 60s on Tuesday to the 70s on Wednesday. Tuesday will be the sunnier of the 2 days with showers moving in with showers moving in coinciding with a cold front for Wednesday afternoon and evening. With the passing of the cold front, temps start drop off for the end of the week.
Looking ahead to the aforementioned end of the week, temps do look to drop off somewhat towards the end of the week before plunging for the weekend, with highs on Thursday and Friday looking to not make it to the 60 degree mark statewide and highs on Saturday and Sunday being stuck in the upper 30s to lower 40s. Low temperatures around the state look to not make it past the the 30s.
We are watching a potential noreaster for this weekend, later Friday through Saturday. With some cold air in place and the low track and intensity very much in doubt, there is a chance that at least part of the state does see some white stuff, especially in the Litchfield hills, and even an argument for snow in eastern CT with higher intensity of precipitation causing temps to drop and changing rain over to frozen precip. We will be watching this very closely, but it is much too early to make any guesses on accumulations.
So I have finally gotten the tech problems out of the way and apologize profusely for not updating the page as much as I should.
