WHAT an amazing Tuesday we were able to enjoy weather-wise across Connecticut. With low levels of humidity, temperatures only peaked in the 70s under a mix of sun and clouds. The pleasant change comes in the wake of the cold front that brought severe weather to the region yesterday.
While a deep trough in the upper regions of the atmosphere will set up shop over the Eastern United States over the next several days, our weather will remain fairly tranquil in the near term. That means we can look forward to another nice day tomorrow. In fact, we'll start the day on a cooler note – in the 50s, so turn off the A/C and open those windows; then, during the afternoon temperatures warm into the upper 70s and lower 80s. Once again, humidity levels will remain low.
For the most part, we will enjoy fair weather through Friday, but we can't rule out a few pop-up showers/storms at some point Thursday or Friday afternoon/evening, with the daytime heating combining with cooler air aloft creating a little instability.
When it comes to the weekend, there is definite uncertainty to how close unsettled weather comes to Connecticut. As of now, we're maintaining the forecast for drier weather Saturday and a trend to the unsettled for Sunday.
Make it a great night!
