The chilly but nice weather that's enveloped southwestern Connecticut for the last three day is sliding off to the Atlantic, allowing a low-pressure system to move up the East Coast toward Fairfield and vicinity, bringing rain tomorrow.

A second low will arrive Thursday night into Friday, triggering more wet weather.

But today will be mostly sunny, with only a few stratocumulus clouds aloft to dull the sunshine. It'll be a little warmer than Tuesday, with highs in the mid-50s. Clouds will thicken toward evening, and rain is expected to start falling across the region early Thursday.

The sun will set today at 5:46 and there will be 10 hours and 19 minutes of sunlight. Sunrise tomorrow will occur at 7:27 a.m..

Here's more details from the National Weather Service forecast:
