Here are your Wednesday Evening Connecticut weather headlines from StormTeam8 Senior Meteorologist Fred Campagna:
- Rain continues heavy at times through most of this evening. It will taper to showers by midnight, and showers are likely after midnight. Temperatures will stay in the 50s overnight.
- After a damp start, Thursday looks mostly cloudy and mild. Highs will be in the mid 50s.
- The weather will change quickly Thursday evening into Friday morning. A storm forming along a stalled frontal boundary off the Eastern Seaboard may come close enough to bring snow to primarily eastern CT late Friday night through mid-morning. Right now, the timing is roughly 2-9 am. The best chance of steady snow and minor accumulations is in New London County. If the system trends a little farther west, a few inches of snow may accumulate at the Shoreline. We’ll keep you posted.
- Friday afternoon will be partly cloudy and chilly. Highs will be in the mid to upper 30s.
- The weekend looks dry and quiet. Highs will be in the low 40s Saturday and Sunday. Lows will be in the low 20s Saturday, and mid to upper 20s Sunday morning.
- The weather action looks to pick up again early next week. There is a lot of uncertainty, but the weather pattern is favorable for a storm along the Eastern Seaboard either Monday or Tuesday. Right now, we’re favoring Tuesday for the best chance of snow or mixed precipitation.
- While there is uncertainty about the storminess early next week, it’s a lock that it will be colder than the first week of the month. Highs will be in the 30s most days.
