We’ve had a great run of weather the last several days, and that looks to continue for the balance of the extended forecast period, with generally normal to above normal temperatures expected throughout. Towards the end of the period, it looks like we shift towards a cooler and wetter regime, with several potential systems in the pipeline to perhaps bring some rain to the area. Let’s take a look at the dailies.
Tomorrow looks to be another warm and sunny day, with temperatures around 60 and mostly sunny skies expected, with perhaps some passing clouds in the afternoon. We’ll see showers move in tomorrow night and linger throughout much of the day Friday as a result of a weak shortwave moving over our area. The forecast carries a chance of showers through Saturday, but in general, expect coverage to diminish after mid-morning Friday as the defined shortwave moves out and a weak ULL is all that remains to promote development. Highs for Friday again will fall around the 60 mark, slightly cooler right on the coastline.
Saturday brings a cold front late in the day as a result of a strong upper level low moving across the area, but before then, it’s likely that we will see the warmest readings of 2015 so far, with highs in the lower 70s expected. We should see mostly sunny skies, with only a slight chance for some showers, and so it’ll be a beautiful day to be outside soaking up the sunshine!
Thursday: Sunny, with highs around 60.
Friday: A chance of showers, mainly in the morning. Otherwise, mostly cloudy, with highs around 60. Chance of rain is 60%
Saturday: A slight chance of showers, otherwise, mostly sunny, with highs in the lower 70s. Chance of rain is 20%
Sunday: Clouds building throughout the day, some PM showers possible, with highs in the upper 50s. Chance of rain is 30%.
Monday: A chance of rain, otherwise, cloudy, with highs around 50. Chance of rain is 60%.
Tuesday: A chance of showers, otherwise, clearing, with highs in the low 50s. Chance of rain is 30%.
Enjoy the upcoming warmth and beautiful weekend that’s in store, and thank you for reading Southern Connecticut Weather!
