Good afternoon all!
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. Boy is it a nice day out there! We started the day on a cooler note – in the 50s. Folks were able to turn off the A/C and open up those windows! This afternoon, temperatures continue to warm into the upper 70s and lower 80s. Once again, humidity levels are 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 tomorrow 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. Unfortunately it's now looking as though there will be showers in the forecast for both Saturday and Sunday. Let's hope that changes between now and then.
Make it a great day!
