Expect a beautiful, warm and sunny weekend with comfortable levels of humidity; high in the 80s inland, 70s to near 80 along the beaches.

High pressure will dominate Connecticut’s weather with plenty of sunshine, warm temperatures and comfortable levels of humidity this weekend.  The high pressure will drift off the mid-Atlantic Coast transporting a bit more humid air mass into the region on Monday as a southwest flow develops on the backside of the high.  The combination of increasing levels of humidity and the slow moving cold front could spark a few showers on Monday.

The cold front will slowly weaken as it crosses the northeast Tuesday with numerous showers and thunderstorms.  The front will move off-shore on Wednesday followed by more high pressure from the Great Lakes and central Canada that will lower the humidity and bring back the sunshine with seasonably warm temperatures.

The next front will slowly approach the area by next Friday with another band of showers.  These cold fronts will keep heat waves away from New England through the next week to 10 days.

Tonight: Clear, moonlit sky, comfortable. Low: 55-60.

Sunday: Mostly sunny, warm, a bit more humid.  High: 83-88 inland, 70s along the shoreline.  Wind: SW 5-10 mph
