Saturday Night Forecast: Sunny, Cooler For Easter

This is an archived article and the information in the article may be outdated.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 will continue to dominate our weather on Easter with plenty of sunshine and seasonable temperatures.   High pressure will build off the New England Coast Sunday afternoon, inducing a sea breeze that will keep temperatures a few degrees cooler than inland areas.  Highs will be near or just over 60 inland, but will only reach the lower 50s along the shoreline.

A southwest wind will become more prevalent on Monday, thus transporting warmer air across inland Connecticut when temperatures may approach 70 degrees.  A cold front will cross the Northeast Tuesday night with a band of showers followed by clearing and cooler temperatures by Wednesday and Thursday.  Temperatures will warm a bit, approaching 70 by the end of the workweek, before another cold front with showers moves in by next Saturday.
