A somewhat wet weekend is in the forecast for southwestern Connecticut, according to the National Weather Service.
Today will be mostly cloudy, with a daytime high of about 35 degrees.
Tonight, there's a slight chance of rain -- perhaps even snow showers -- with mostly cloudy skies and a low temperature of about 32.
Saturday starts out nicely, according to the NWS, under mostly sunny skies, with temperatures warmer than over the last few days, cresting in the mid-40s. But rain is likely at night and into early Sunday. The chance of precipitation is 70 percent, with new rainfall amounts between one-tenth and one-quarter inch, the weather service predicts.
Later Sunday, rain is expected to intensify, with the warming trend continuing. The daytime high is likely to be near 50 degrees. There will be a modest wind at between 10 and 15 mph, with gusts as high as 25 mph. There could be between 1 and 2 inches of rain.
Rain should continue into Sunday night as well, the NWS says, as temperatures fall into the mid-50s.
