WEATHER TO WATCH: Wet weather looms after Presidents’ Day sunshine in Connecticut
Presidents' Day is expected to be pleasant and sunny, but Tuesday is looking to be a washout in Connecticut.
Monday will see highs in the 50s.
News 12 meteorologists say that Tuesday will be cloudy with rain showers, starting off light in the morning before becoming steady for the afternoon and evening.
Highs will be in the mid-50s. Wind gusts can reach up to 40 mph during the evening.
Wednesday is expected to have highs in the mid-60s before temperatures drop back down to the upper-30s on Thursday.
- Rain for Tuesday. Low passes to our north with cold front and rain. Looks warm enough that we shouldn't see any precip issues. Winds kick on on Tuesday afternoon/night. Strongest gusts near shore. At this point it doesn't look extreme for NJ (winds 30-40 mph gusts). CT may have some higher gusts (40 mph+). Rain up to 1.25". More rain north than south.
- Super warm Wednesday once the sky clears (think spring)
- Colder Thu - end of week
- Friday's system - cold air damming comes into play and the track of this too. Secondary low looks for form near tri-state if not right over. Let's see if this trend continues. Going north or south a bit will change up precip type. Could be wintry to start both regions.
