We’ll see a few showers tonight and tomorrow as a cold front eases through and ushers Tropical Depression 8 into the Atlantic Ocean. We will not see a steady, soaking rain, but some brief heavy downpours cannot be ruled out. Tropical Storm Hermine (formerly TD9) formed in the Gulf of Mexico Wednesday afternoon. The track trend is closer to the Eastern Seaboard, and it may come close enough to bring some showers and breezy conditions over the Labor Day weekend. There is still a lot of uncertainty with the forecast, but the best chance of showers is at the Shoreline on Sunday into Monday. It does not look like the storm will get close enough to bring strong, damaging winds. Keep in mind, the storm is still in the Gulf of Mexico and we may not have a solid handle on the forecast and impacts in CT for another couple of days.
Tonight: Scattered showers, chance of a t-storm. Muggy and mild. Lows in the upper 60s.
Thursday: Scattered morning showers, some late-day clearing. Highs near 80. Turns less humid Thursday night.
Friday: Mostly sunny, low humidity with highs only in the mid to upper 70s. Clear with a fall-like feel Friday night.
Saturday: Looks decent. Sunshine followed by late-day clouds at the Shoreline. Breezy and dry. Highs in the mid to upper 70s.
Sunday: Forecast hinges on how far north Hermine gets. Showers at the Shoreline with some heavy downpours possible. Scattered showers inland. Mainly cloudy, a bit muggy, breezy, with the strongest (20-30 mph) gusts near the Shoreline. Highs in the 70s.
