Powerful Nor’easter To Bring Dreary Weather For Days: CT Weather

0

CONNECTICUT — A powerful Nor’easter is moving close enough to Connecticut that it will produce rain and heavy wind gusts for days. The storm will also result in temps only reaching into the 50s.

WTNH News 8 Chief Meteorologist Gil Simmons notes in his forecast that the worst of the weather appears to be on Thursday due to increasing wind gusts and he cautions that power outages could occur in some areas of the state.

The National Weather Service says, “A slow moving area of low pressure will result in unsettled weather through the end of the work week, with periods of rain and gusty northeast winds. Rain chances will increase from east to west this morning and continue through much of the daylight hours before diminishing briefly after sunset. Any dry weather will be shortlived, with rain chances increasing once again late tonight into the day on Thursday before gradually diminishing Thursday night.

“In addition to the rain, gusty northeast winds along the coast will increase from 25-35 mph today to 35-45 mph Thursday into Thursday night. The greatest impacts from both winds and rain are expected along the coast…. With plenty of cloud cover, daytime temperatures willremain below normal, with highs both today and Thursday only rising into the upper 50s to around 60. Overnight lows will range from the mid 40s north and west to around 50 at the coast, near normal for this time of year.

The silver lining is that the weekend weather forecast looks ok and is mainly dry but there could be a stray rain shower or two on Saturday.
