We came close to breaking a record low last night at Windsor Locks; however, it fell short by a few degrees. We tied the record low of 22 in Bridgeport early Saturday morning. We have a better chance to the challenge the record lows at Bridgeport and Windsor Locks Sunday morning
Sunday will be a few degrees warmer as high pressure builds off-shore bring in a light southerly marine flow off the Long Island Sound. Clouds will increase and thicken Sunday night into Monday that will bring temps up some - but with the clouds, there is a chance for some snow flurries, maybe even a light rain/snow mix that won't accumulate too much anything. A cold front into Monday evening could bring another brief round of rain or snow - and that keep the cold air in place through the middle of the week. A cold front will cross the region on Thursday with a band of light rain showers. Temperatures by then will return to normal which is around 50 degrees. It will be a bit cooler on Friday but at least not the arctic cold that we are experiencing this weekend.
Next weekend , another round of rain showers will come ahead of what models show to be a rather wet storm because the storm track would be to our west. However, it's still way too far out to lock it down - but something to watch in the meantime.
