It’s so cold, we’re making Alaska look mild! Yes, really. It’s milder in Alaska right now than it is here in Connecticut.
Record-breaking cold is possible in Bridgeport tonight. The current record stands at 24 degrees and was set in 1986. We’re forecasting an overnight low of 20 degrees. Windsor Locks is less likely to break the record, but it’s close to the record of 12 degrees set in 1924--we’re forecasting a low of 15.
Now that we got the talk of records out of the way, a warm front will bring a boost in clouds late Wednesday into early Thursday morning. There is also a slight chance for a flurry or a sprinkle overnight. But any precipitation is light and gone before sunrise. Thursday will not be as cold as recent days, with high temperatures up to around 40 degrees. Since when did 40 degrees sound mild?
Friday and Saturday turn cold again with highs in the 40s. A real warming trend will get underway Sunday into Monday when temperatures could eventually top 60 degrees! Heat wave!
