Fairfield forecast: A week-long 'clousy' spell
Today's forecast for southwestern Connecticut is largely the same as yesterday -- and tomorrow.
The National Weather Service calls for warm, very humid and overcast conditions, with the possibility of showers both during day- and nighttime.
Today's daytime high temperature is expected to reach the upper-70s, with a north wind around 7 mph, later becoming southeast. Chance of precipitation is about 20 percent.
Tonight, with the possibility of showers still in the forecast, patchy fog is expected to take hold late and last until early Monday. The temperature will fall to the mid-60s, the NWS says.
Monday, there is a slight chance of showers, with thunderstorms also possible after 11 a.m. There will be fog in some areas from early morning until as late as 10 a.m. Showers remain a possibility at night as temperatures dip to the mid-60s.
From Tuesday through Friday, the NWS for the region is basically the same: showers possible, as well as isolated thunderstorms, with temperatures in the low-70s and mostly cloudy skies.
A break -- at long last -- in the stretch of damp and cloudy weather appears on the horizon Saturday, when the weather service predicts sunny skies and temperatures in the mid-60s.
