FOX CT Forecast: Heat And Humidity Return

Sunday will be a little warmer and a bit more humid as a southwest flow develops in the afternoon. There is a slight chance for an isolated shower and/or thunderstorm in the afternoon as a trough dissects Connecticut.

The trough will switch the direction of our wind, lowering humidity ever so slightly on Monday. But the tradeoff will be a hotter day to end the month of August 

I know this is the first week of September and for some, the first week of school. But we could be in for a heat wave as temperatures could reach or even exceed 90 degrees through most of next week making it feel more like the first week of July. So, don’t put away those air conditioners just yet.

The next chance for showers may not happen until late Thursday when a backdoor cold moves in bringing cooler air by Friday. Early indications are for a beautiful Labor Day weekend with plenty of sunshine and comfortable levels of humidity. Temperatures will still be above normal but at least it will be comfortable and rain-free!

Extended Forecast:

Sunday: Partly sunny, warmer and a bit more humid in the afternoon, slight chance for an isolated shower. High: 83-88.

Monday: Mostly sunny, very warm and humid. High: 85-90.

Tuesday: Sunny, hot and humid. High: 90.

Wednesday: Sunny, hot. High: 87-92.

Thursday: Partly sunny hot and humid, chance for a few showers and thunderstorms. High: 85-90.

Friday: Mostly sunny, cooler, less humid. High: 80.
