A Flood Warning is in effect for the Connecticut River at Hartford and Middle Haddam. Minor flooding is occurring and minor flooding is forecast through Thursday morning. This is for the typical low-lying areas (that flood every spring) in areas immediately surrounding the river like Hartford, Wethersfield, Glastonbury and Portland. You can read more here.
A much warmer morning today than yesterday – you won’t have to worry about seeing your breath when you head out the door today. In fact, layered dress will be essential today, because you’ll be shedding the sweater by day’s end! Expect high temps to top out near 70 degrees in most spots around the state. The warm front that is causing this big warmup will still produce some lingering showers in its wake early, but don’t expect them to be anything more than a minor nuisance for your drive.
Friday will be warm too with highs near 70 degrees and partly cloudy skies. A cold front will end the warmth Friday night along with the chance for an isolated shower.
Cooler air, 50s return this weekend. Saturday looks like the pick of the weekend followed by showers Sunday into Monday.
Looking ahead towards Wednesday – it looks as though our run of good luck at the weather department may be at an end – with some computer models showing a developing storm system to our south. At this point, there is still considerable uncertainty as to how things will evolve – so take the Wednesday forecast with a grain of salt for right now.
