After a brisk, cloudy and chilly day, we will start to see skies clear more overnight and winds will begin to relax as well. Temperatures get cold overnight with lows falling to around freezing for most. If skies can clear and winds lighten enough across the valley, frost is likely through Saturday morning.
High pressure is in control tonight and the start of Saturday, keeping our weather dry and crisp. However, this high will move east Saturday and our winds shift out of the southwest-bringing in milder air. Temperatures Saturday afternoon get back to normal with highs in the mid and upper 50s.
A cold front will sag southward Saturday, but most of the showers along the front remain to our north. Clouds should increase through the afternoon though and a stray shower can’t be ruled out. By Sunday, the front will slowly move to the CT coast, bringing scattered showers late in the day. We stay mild with highs around 60.
High pressure will bring a breeze, clearing skies and cooler temperatures Sunday night into Monday, then a sunny sky and cool afternoon and evening for Trick or Treating. It will get colder Monday night with high pressure overhead and Tuesday should begin frosty. Again, high pressure moves east and we warm up. Temperatures look to get well into the 60s Wednesday with some sunshine and a southwest breeze, then wet weather returns for the end of the week.
