Showers moving through CT, Click here for the interactive radar. These showers will move out by the PM drive. Much colder weather on its way to CT. Weekend forecast below
Much colder weather will be moving into Connecticut over the next 24-36 hours. A front moved through yesterday which brought rain and wind. The front has since moved off shore and changed the flow from SE to eventually NW this morning. This means much colder air for Connecticut. Temperatures were in the 50s this morning across the State, they will gradually drop through the afternoon into the evening and evening further overnight. We will see temperatures statewide in the mid 40s by early afternoon, upper 30s and low 40s by the evening commute and overnight lows will be in the upper 20s and low 30s. It will feel like a shock on Saturday, our highs will only be in the upper 30s. Although this is just about normal for this time of the year, it certainly hasn’t felt this cold in a while. These will be the actual temperatures, factor in the wind and it will feel much colder. The graphic above shows what the forecast temperature will feel like when you factor in the windchill. By the time you wake up tomorrow morning, temperatures will feel like the upper teens and mid 20s. It won’t get much better as we go into the afternoon. As we mentioned before, highs will only be in the upper 30s by the afternoon, factor in the wind and it will feel like widespread 20s and even a few teens inland. With the winds being so strong from the NW, a few scattered flurries will be flying. It’s not impossible for locations in western CT to see a dusting on secondary surfaces (BBQ, Car Windows). However, I don’t think this mild pattern is changing just yet, temperatures will go right back to above normal for the day on Sunday, and getting even milder again mid-week!
