Chance of a sprinkle Wednesday; mostly cloudy Thursday

We’ve seen plenty of trees and wires down across the area, leading to road closures and many travel headaches all morning. The cleanup continues today.

A Flood Warning is in effect for the Connecticut River at Hartford and Middle Haddam. Minor flooding is occurring and minor flooding is forecast through Wednesday or Thursday. This is for the typical low-lying areas (that flood every spring) in areas immediately surrounding the river like Hartford, Wethersfield, Glastonbury and Portland. You can read more here.

Clouds will increase Wednesday with highs in the 50s. There is a slight chance for a sprinkle late-day but there is a better chance for showers Wednesday night into Thursday morning as a warm front approaches.  This will be followed by warmer temperatures Thursday afternoon with highs in the 60s. Friday will be even warmer with highs near 70 degrees.

Cooler air, 50s return this weekend. Saturday looks like the pick of the weekend followed by showers or a period of rain on Sunday.
