For some locations, it will take until after midnight tonight before any rain falls. Temperatures will be trending cooler, a bit below average for this time of year.
Widespread rain develops into the region today, and will likely be heavy into the late afternoon and evening. Total rainfall will range between 1 to 2 inches.
Sunday is the start of the cooler temps (50s to lower 60s) to go along with a more unsettled pattern.
Sunday: 70 per cent chance of showers, high of 6 C.
The steadier rain will taper off to scattered showers and drizzle tomorrow night.
Our next system approaches Thursday, bringing plenty of clouds throughout the day.
Expect cloudy skies and showers to continue until the afternoon where clouds will start to break.
A special weather statement on Environment Canada's website states that the ground is already saturated, creating the potential of localized flooding. Saturday will be mostly cloudy and breezy with highs in the mid to upper 60s. That's not to say it's going to rain non-stop within that timeframe - there could very well be a break in the steady rain and even a peek of sun Friday afternoon. This keeps cloudy and cool conditions in place for the weekend.
A storm will slip by to the south of New England on Wednesday. Expect a windy and cooler Thursday. It could brush CT with rain in the morning, then the sky should become partly sunny by the afternoon.
April was a very warm month with near normal precipitation. Temperatures begin in the middle 30s to lower 40s. Enjoy it. We'll be wishing for days like this over the next several months.
