Monday Night Forecast: Higher Humidity On The Way

This is an archived article and the information in the article may be outdated.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.

High pressure that has delivered our beautiful sunny weather and low humidity across the state during the last several days, will lose its grip across the area Tuesday as clouds and humidity increase.

By late Tuesday evening and Tuesday night showers and thunderstorms will cross the area as a slow moving cold front begins to enter Connecticut.  The front will stall south and east of Connecticut, taking the rain offshore by Wednesday morning, followed by partial sunshine in the afternoon.

Low pressure developing in the Plains States will begin to track along the front and cause the front to buckle north into our region with another round of rain and showers by Thursday.  The storm will quickly exit the Northeast early Friday followed by more beautiful weather with sunshine, low humidity and comfortable sleeping as high pressure from central Canada dominates our weather for the weekend.
