Today’s Forecast

It’s Halloween and looks like the rain has held back- per my forecast this week…
Clouds are thick and temps stayed in the mid to upper 50’s. I’ll still leave a few sprinkles in this evening, but watch for developing fog. Winds are now shifting out of the north. Now I quickly need to touch on some forecasts that I’ve read calling this coastal storm not a big deal. I’m telling you now that the winds are going to get very strong, the last time I forecasted damaging winds, we got that electrical fire Bob Wilson covered in Hartford County. I initially had gusts up to 35 mph  but that is definitely getting bumped up! I absolutely find potentially damaging winds a big deal! In addition the storm pushed in a bit, but we have two lows that we’re watching not just one. While precip has backed up a bit, I do still think that Eastern and South Eastern CT could get a good soaking. Also this system has been all over the place this week. With the strong NE winds late, it’s all about timing, so until this storm is cleared to move before temps drop then I have to keep the threat of flurries in. Some may not agree, that’s fine. The freezing point from water is 32 degrees F and we’ve seen a changeover as temperatures approach that mark. Anyhow this is a time is of the essence type of development.
