Another Round of Rain on Wednesday

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

  • Chilly rain continues Tuesday night. The rain will not be terribly heavy, and only 0.1-0.3″ of rain is likely overnight.
  • The temperature will range from the mid 30s inland to the mid 40s at the Shoreline. It will be raw, but not cold enough for ice.
  • A break in the action is possible early Wednesday as low pressure center moves away and another approaches from the southwest. It will be cloudy and damp, with temperatures in the mid 30s to low 40s.
  • Rain will redevelop by mid to late morning. It will be steadier, but not heavy in the afternoon. The temperature will rise into the mid 40s to low 50s – warmest at the Shoreline.
  • Rain tapers to showers by late Wednesday evening, and it will most likely end before dawn on Thursday. It will stay mild, with temperatures holding steady or rising a few degrees at night.
  • Even though the storm will last nearly 48 hours, the rain totals will not be too impressive – most likely 0.5-0.8″.
  • After a mild start, it will turn cooler by late Thursday. You can expect a gusty northwest wind, and temperatures falling into the low 40s by sunset under partly cloudy skies.
  • A nice stretch of weather is ahead for Friday into early next week.
  • Friday looks breezy and seasonably cool. Highs will be in the mid to upper 40s with a west breeze and mostly sunny skies.
  • Saturday will be sunny with lows in the upper 20s to low 30s, and highs in the upper 40s to low 50s.
  • Sunday should be another bright and mild day. Highs will be in the low 50s with mostly sunny skies.
  • Dry weather continues into next week before rain threatens late Tuesday into early Wednesday.
