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.
Overnight: A chilly night with temperatures in the 30s, and even the upper 20s in the normally colder towns.
Sunday: Mostly sunny. High temperatures in the low 60s inland. The shoreline will remain cooler in the middle and upper 50s. Southeast wind at 5 to 10 miles an hour.
Monday: Sunny, pleasant. High: 65-70, cooler along the shore. Wind: SSW 10-15 mph
Tuesday: Morning sunshine, followed by increasing afternoon clouds with the chance for a few showers by late evening or at night. High: upper 60s
Wednesday: Morning shower, otherwise partly sunny, blustery and cooler. High: 55-60.
Thursday: Mostly sunny windy and cool. High: upper 50s to low 60s.
Friday: Mostly sunny. High: near 70.
