Mainly Rain Friday Night into Saturday

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

  • Clouds will increase Thursday night. A few flurries are possible by dawn. Lows will be in the low 20s inland, and mid 20s at the Shoreline.
  • A stray flurry is possible Friday morning. Skies will become partly cloudy, and it will be milder in the afternoon. Highs will be in the low 40s at the Shoreline and upper 30s inland.
  • Clouds thicken again early Friday evening as a storm develops south of CT. Rain will develop around midnight. There may be a very brief period of snow/sleet before a quick change to rain, especially inland. Rain continues through dawn on Saturday.
  • Showers will move out by late Saturday morning, and the afternoon looks dry and relatively mild. Highs will be in the 40s.
  • Sunday looks dry and seasonably cool. Highs will be in the 30s.
  • A weak system moving through Sunday night into Monday morning could bring a period of light snow. We’ll be tracking it this weekend.
  • A big-time cold shot is ahead for early next week. Afternoon temperatures will be in the 20s Monday and Tuesday, and wind chills will be 10-15 degrees colder thanks to a gusty northerly wind. Lows will be in the low to mid teens, with wind chills near or below zero. It will be dry through the midweek.
  • Look for the chill to ease a bit by the mid to late workweek as it stays dry. Highs will be in the 30s Thursday and Friday.
