Summer heat will stay south of Connecticut this weekend. But at least the weather will stay dry for outdoor plans like commencements or ball games. Both days this weekend will feature a sea breeze, keeping the shoreline cooler than inland areas. Saturday’s sunshine will get filtered by high clouds from time to time. Clouds will increase later Sunday as a warm front approaches.  Showers should hold off until Sunday night, continuing off and on through Monday as well.  Once the front moves north of the area Monday night, the heat moves in.  Tuesday through Friday will be warmer and a bit humid.  Although it will not be a washout during that timeframe we will get scattered showers and thunderstorms. Some of the storms could be strong.

Tonight: Mostly clear. Low: 47-55.

Saturday: Sunshine mixing with high clouds from time to time. Wind becoming south 5-10 mph. High: 70-75

Sunday: Sunny start with clouds increasing in the afternoon from southwest to northeast. Chance showers at night. Mid 70s inland, Upper 60s at the shore.

Monday: Mostly cloudy with scattered showers. Highs in the low 70s inland, upper 60s along the shoreline.

Tuesday:  Warm, breezy and a bit humid. Chance for afternoon and evening showers and thunderstorms. Some storms could be strong. High: Low 80s inland, Upper 70s along the shore.

Wednesday: Morning showers, some clearing by afternoon. High: Low to mid 70s.
