Technical discussion: a milder, cloudy day, colder air is coming tonight! | Technical discussion



Another day, another foggy start! Statewide visibility is somewhat low, although previous dense fog advisories have been waived. However, take it easy on the roads, as some areas still only have half a mile of visibility. Our mild temperatures continue to be very mild this morning, between 46 and 52 degrees.

Once again, clouds will control the forecast today. Sunshine is unlikely and a few scattered and occasional showers are possible from time to time throughout the day. Our high temperatures are climbing anywhere between the low to mid-1950s, which is again extremely hot for the start of January as our normal high for the Hartford area is only 36 degrees.

The above average heat ends tonight! When a cold front arrives, there won’t be much moisture to work with and there may be patches of mixed precipitation. Temperatures drop to the low in the mid-1920s for that night and the wind will pick up. There is a slight chance for a few flurries in the Northwest Hills.


Tomorrow it will be cold! We will peak in the 1930s, but a blustery northerly wind will make it seem like it’s only among teens and under 20s throughout the day. A coastal storm will approach New London County and there is a chance of light snow until Monday morning. As the day progresses, the clouds will dissipate to give way to some sunshine for the afternoon.

The skies will clear up on Monday evening, which will help temperatures drop into the teenage years! Tuesday will bring good sunshine, light cloud cover and seasonal temperatures from January to the mid-1930s. On the positive side, the winds will be calm.

Warm weather arrives Wednesday which will bring more overcast skies and a series of afternoon or evening showers. The peaks will rebound in the 1940s with calm conditions.

On Thursday, a coastal low will rise northward and winds will increase. The day will feature a mix of sun and cloud and the peaks will be in the mid 40’s. For the end of the work week we are following a system that could bring moderate snow and rain along the shore. . The peaks will reach the upper 30s. The GFS, the American model right now, has most of the storms that we miss, but the European model brings it that snow and that rain. We will keep you posted!

The colder air returns for the weekend. Saturday is shaping up to be a cold day in the 1930s with mostly sunny skies. Sunday promises to be warmer with more cloud cover.
