* cooler tonight and Thursday morning with 30s and 40s for lows

* Dry weather Thursday & Friday with 50s for highs

* Dry for trick-or-treators Friday evening with temperatures falling through the 50s and 40s at sunset

* A little rain shower or a flurry Saturday, but not much at all

* No impact to your plans or road conditions

* Lots of wind & colder temperatures Sunday

* Wind chill in the 20s and 30s all day Sunday

Hard to believe North Carolina and Virginia have a better chance at seeing snow this weekend than Connecticut. It looks to me like this storm develops too far south then passes too far east of Connecticut for much more than a few brief rain showers and perhaps a late day flurry or two as the colder air invades. The wind around this storm will gust to 40 mph for much of Sunday creating some very low wind chill values. It is time to find the hats and gloves for this weekend. Remember to change batteries in your smoke alarms and CO alarms when you turn the clock back one hour Saturday Night.

Sunrise Sunday will be around 6:24AM and sunset will be around 4:46PM !

* warming up next week to around 60 by Tuesday

Have a great day! -Gil

I look forward to seeing many of you at the VickiSoto5K Race in Stratford Saturday & The Veterans’ Parade in Hartford Sunday.
