Published 5:50 am, Friday, April 22, 2011
After a chilly night that had prompted the National Weather Service to issue a "freeze warning" for southwestern Connecticut, the region's daytime high temperature is expected to rise today to only about 50 degrees.
It won't be as windy as yesterday, however, with a breeze from the north of only about 8 mph, then becoming southeast.
Rain is expected overnight as the temperature falls to a low of about 40 degrees.
Tomorrow is also expected to be rainy, mainly before 3 p.m. The day's high should be about 53 degrees and a southeast wind around 17 mph, the NWS says. Nighttime tomorrow promises more rain and fog. The low temperature overnight is expected to be about 47 degrees. There will be a southwest wind between 8 and 13 mph.
Easter Sunday is expected to be mostly cloudy with a slight chance of showers. It should be warmer, though, with high temperatures in the mid-60s. There are more showers possible Sunday night.
And more rain is possible Monday, the weather service predicts.
