When you wake up Friday and look out the window, the sunny view will be deceiving. You may even find yourself running back inside to grab a light jacket! Temperatures will begin close to record lows in the 40s and low 50s. The record for Bridgeport is 48 degrees, last set in 1988. The record for Windsor Locks is 40 degrees. Gardeners don’t worry. I’m not concerned about an early frost in Connecticut. At least, not this time around!
By Friday afternoon, thermometers will struggle to hit the 70 degree mark. The heart of cool air will remain in place into Saturday morning. The afternoon looks milder. A few showers are possible Saturday night into Sunday morning. But most of the weekend looks dry for late summer fairs this weekend.
Overnight: Near record cold! Lows: 39-49.
