Damp, Windy and Cool Start to the Weekend

Here are your Friday evening Connecticut Weather headlines from Storm Team 8 Senior Meteorologist Fred Campagna:

  • Damp and dreary weather continues into the weekend, but it will not be as wet as Friday was.
  • Look for a rainy, windy, and raw Friday night. The temperature will fall into the mid to upper 40s with occasional rain.
  • The wind will gust over 30 mph at times Friday night.
  • Minor coastal flooding is likely during the high tide cycles this weekend. The best chance of flooding is in Fairfield and New Haven counties.
  • High tide Friday night is between 1-4 AM, high tide Saturday is between 2-4 PM
  • Saturday will be damp and dreary, but not as rainy as Friday. There will be drizzle and mist, with a few showers, and temperatures only in the low to mid 50s. The 15-30 mph northeast breeze will make it feel even cooler.
  • Cloudy, damp, windy and cool weather continues Saturday night. The temperature will hold in the upper 40s to low 50s.
  • Sunday will be a bit better, but nothing special. There may be some breaks in the clouds during the afternoon. It will be breezy to windy and cool, with highs near 60.
  • Hurricane Joaquin still needs to be watched for a jog to the north late in the weekend and early next week. While it’s highly unlikely that the storm would hit New England, it may come close enough to keep the northeast wind going, and bring continued coastal flooding issues into the middle of next week.
  • Monday looks partly cloudy with highs in the 60s.
  • Tuesday and Wednesday will be pleasant, with highs closer to 70.
