Beautiful Valentine’s Day with temps in the 40s and partly cloudy skies

Valentine's Day evening looks great for any dinner/date plans. Temperatures will drop into the low 30s by 9-10 pm then slowly rise towards daybreak (near 40 at the bus stop Friday).  On Friday you can trade your winter coat in for an umbrella. It will be mild with highs near 50 degrees along with a few showers. Luckily, it doesn't look like a wash-out so you can still get out and enjoy the day in between the rain drops.

This weekend will be about 10 degrees cooler but dry with highs near 40 both days. A couple disturbances will slide to the south this weekend into early next week. But it looks like all of them will miss Connecticut. There is a slight chance for some flurries on Monday but that's about it!

A more impressive storm is on "our radar" for Wednesday afternoon - Thursday morning of next week. This is in crystal ball territory. But as of now it looks like another "kitchen sink" storm with snow changing to an icy mix/rain. I know, we don't like it either. This storm has about 1/3 of the moisture the last one did (translation: it won't be as bad). The forecast is likely to change when looking 6-7 days out but it's worth watching over the days ahead.
