Fairfield forecast: A respite before more winter woes
Published 7:21 am, Sunday, January 30, 2011
Today promises to be mostly sunny, a respite from the cycle of winter storms that has buffeted southwestern Connecticut since the post-Christmas blizzard.
The National Weather Service predicts the daytime high temperature will be about 35 degrees under clear skies.
Tonight will also be clear, but very cold, with a low of about 11 degrees.
Tomorrow should also be mostly sunny with a high in the mid 30s.
But there is a 40 percent chance overnight into Tuesday, the NWS says. The low temperature will fall to around 14 and an east wind will clock in at between 6 and 13 mph.
Snow is likely Tuesday morning, easing after 9 a.m. The day will be cloudy, with a high near 32. The threat of more snow continues Tuesday night, then mixing with freezing rain, and sleet.
The freezing rain is likely before noon Wednesday, then changing to just rain as temperatures edge above freezing to a daytime high of 34 degrees.
There is a 50 percent chance of more rain and snow in nighttime.
Thursday will be partly sunny and blustery, with a high near 28, the NWS says.
