Windy Friday; Colder This Weekend

Here are your Thursday Evening Connecticut weather headlines from StormTeam8 Senior Meteorologist Fred Campagna:

  • Occasional showers continue this evening. It will be relatively mild, with temperatures in the mid 50s until the showers end around midnight.
  • Expect some clearing and an increasing westerly breeze late tonight. Lows will be in the mid to upper 40s.
  • The big weather story on Friday will be gusty westerly winds. Sustained winds between 10-25 mph are likely, and up to 40 mph gusts are possible.
  • Sunshine Friday morning will give way to some clouds in the afternoon. Highs will be in the mid 50s.
  • Strong winds continue Friday night. Look for gusts over 30 mph through the night.
  • It will turn colder Friday night, and a few flurries are possible. The best chance of flurries or a snow squall is in Litchfield County. We do not expect enough snow to coat the ground.
  • Saturday looks partly cloudy, blustery and chilly. Lows will be in the 30s, and highs will be in the mid 40s, but feeling colder because of 15-30 mph winds.
  • Sunday will be in the 20s to low 30s at dawn, and low to mid 50s in the afternoon with partly sunny skies.
  • It will be dry and milder early next week. Highs will be in the upper 50s Monday and Tuesday. Both days look mostly sunny.
  • A slow-moving system will get closer by late in the week, and the threat of showers increases Thursday and Friday.
  • Highs will be near 60 – very mild for mid-November Wed-Fri!
