Today will feature a period of unsettled weather as a cold front approaches the region from the west. The front will be running out of steam so to speak as it approaches the coast, which means the best chance for rain will be up in the mountains and along the CT river valley, where the first round of showers will arrive in the mid morning hours. This isn’t to say that parts of the coast won’t see some rain, just that the odds decrease the farther east you go. The most likely time for rain along the coast will be around and a little after noon. Another round of showers will arrive in the mountains/CT river valley later this evening before falling apart on its way east.
Winds will be out of the SSW today ahead of the front, which means temps will be pleasantly warm, at least for southern areas. Look for highs in the upper 50’s north to low 70’s south. It also means that humidity will nudge slightly higher, with dew points crossing the “noticeable” threshold of 60 degrees in southern parts of the area.
While there may be some sunny breaks between the first and second rounds of showers, overall today looks pretty cloudy. Nicer weather returns tomorrow.
