Friday Afternoon Weather: Don’t Put The Winter Jacket Away Yet

This is an archived article and the information in the article may be outdated. Please look at the time stamp on the story to see when it was last updated.

The first weekend of spring will get off to a mild start and a cold finish. Saturday will start off mostly cloudy with the chance for a passing shower through midday.  Then some clearing will take place in the mid-late afternoon with temperatures soaring into the 50s.  Sunday will be about 15 to 20 degrees colder with partly to mostly sunny skies. Mid winter cold arrives Monday.

A monster coastal storm will be the focus of our attention Tuesday and Wednesday.  Is it a hit or a miss? The exact track is uncertain. After looking at the latest data, it seems a direct hit is becoming less likely.  But even a glancing blow could bring accumulating snow to Connecticut.  For now, there’s nothing to be worried about. A lot can change when you’re talking about a forecast four to five days out. Just keep an eye on the forecast over the weekend as we get a better handle on things.
