After a week that featured a historic severe weather outbreak and a dreary Saturday, we quiet down a bit for the week ahead. There will still be shower chances though. Let's take a look at your Sunday and week ahead.
Before turning to tomorrow, we have to deal with fog and more showers tonight. A dense fog advisory is in effect for the shoreline, and I think we can see patchy dense fog across the state but especially in southern Connecticut as a warm front approaches overnight. Be careful if you are driving. After a cold day, temperatures will continue to rise tonight and into tomorrow.
Tomorrow looks better than today, but I'm not sold on a nice day. As showers end tonight, we should see low clouds and fog during the morning. There may be a few lingering showers or patches of drizzle. We should see a few breaks of sun in what would otherwise be a partly to mostly cloudy day. During the afternoon hours, we will watch a cold front approach to our west, bringing the chance of showers and thunderstorms, likely between 2-8pm. These should be garden variety storms and nothing like what we saw earlier this week. It will feel like summer with highs in the mid to upper 70s and more humid conditions.
The first half of the week looks relatively nice. High pressure builds in on Monday in the wake of the cold front and we should see sunny and seasonable conditions. A few showers are possible during the morning and evening on Tuesday, but much of the day looks decent right now. Wednesday we should return to nicer weather and clear conditions.
The latter half of the week looks a touch more uncertain, but at this point, it looks to be quiet. High pressure looks to build, bringing us dry an seasonable conditions, if not a touch below normal. By the weekend we'll be watching the progress of a low that some guidance has developing in the tropics. We're not necessarily looking for direct impacts, but rather if moisture will get drawn into the region by Sunday and Memorial Day. It's not something to worry about at this time.
