Just when you thought fall weather was here to stay...SURPRISE! Summer-warmth will be making a comeback the next couple of days. It will not be as hot as last week when we broke records but you'll notice a difference.

Wednesday will be sunny and warmer with highs in the mid 70s to near 80 degrees.  A southwest wind will be noticeable too at 5 to 15 miles an hour.

Some early clouds Thursday will give way to another sunny and warm day. Temperatures will approach 80 for many towns.

A cold front will approach and stall nearby for Friday bringing the chance for a few showers. Most of the day will be dry but it will be cloudier and cooler with highs around 70 degrees.

An early shower is possible on Saturday. The rest of the day will feature clearing and warmer temperatures with highs in the 70s.

There is still a lot of uncertainty regarding Sunday's forecast. A cold front nearby could bring a few showers. But at this time it looks like our best chance for steady rain will be on Monday. We could really use it!

According to the US Drought Monitor, much of Connecticut has been “abnormally dry” for more than a month now. If this keeps up, we could head back into a drought.
