Cold Weekend Before Another Big Warm-Up

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

  • Friday was the 9th straight day at least 11° warmer than normal in Windsor Locks.
  • It is highly likely that this month will be the warmest December on record in Connecticut.
  • The high was 50° on Friday at Windsor Locks. It’s the 11th 50° day this month at that location. The December record (13 days) will very likely be broken in the next week.
  • Colder weather arrives on a northwest breeze Friday night. Skies will be partly cloudy with a passing flurry possible late at night. Lows will be in the upper 20s to low 30s.
  • Saturday looks partly cloudy, windy and cold. There may be a flurry here and there. Highs will be in the mid to upper 30s. Wind chills will be in the 20s all day with a 15-30 mph wind.
  • You can expect sunshine on Sunday, but it will not warm up much. Highs will be near 40. It will be breezy, but not as windy as Saturday.
  • Another warm-up is in the forecast for next week.
  • Monday features increasing clouds with highs near 50. Rain showers are possible at night.
  • Rain showers are possible Tuesday and Wednesday. Both days will be in the 50s. We’ll fine-tune this forecast in the coming days.
  • Right now, it looks like record high temperatures could happen on Christmas Eve. The early outlook is for highs in the upper 50s to mid 60s with partly sunny skies!
  • It will be mild, but not as warm on Christmas. Highs will be in the low 50s with a blend of clouds and sun.
