Our temperatures have struggled to get out of the 60s this afternoon, and now we are cooling down quickly. A few towns saw some sprinkles, but the majority of us remained dry throughout the entire day.
The upper level energy tracked south of New England and kicked off some showers and thunderstorms, especially through southern Connecticut and southeastern Massachusetts.
This system will move out giving way to clearing skies and cool temps tonight. By morning readings will be down into the 40s. Tomorrow looks pretty nice overall, though we will have a stiff northwest wind during the day, possibly gusting up to 30mph in some spots. Clouds will be on the decrease - starting partly to mostly cloudy in the morning to lots of sunshine in the afternoon.
The winds relax quite a bit for Friday, but once again, we'll be 10-12 degrees below the average temperature.
It will be a bit warmer and more humid on Saturday with highs in the mid 70s. A cold front will bring some showers on Sunday so Saturday is looking like the better of the weekend days.
We'll stay below average, temperature-wise, Monday and Tuesday before we are back to normal for Wednesday.
