Fairfield forecast: Foggy start to a cloudy day
Today, like the last several days in southwestern Connecticut, is off to a foggy start. The National Weather Service predicts that the fog will clear off by late morning, but skies will remain mostly cloudy.
The daytime high temperature is expected to rise to about 66 degrees, and the wind will be from the south between 6 and 14 mph.
Tonight, according to the NWS, there is a slight chance of showers before 11 p.m. as fog settles in again across the region. The overnight low is expected to be about 53 degrees.
There is a chance of showers -- perhaps thunderstorms -- tomorrow after 1 p.m. The high temperature should rise to the mid-60s, with a south wind between 9 and 13 mph. The chance of rain and thunderstorms continues tomorrow night, with patchy fog and temperatures falling to a low in the upper-50s.
On Thursday, more showers and thunderstorms are in the NWS forecast after noon. Some of the storms could trigger heavy rain. The daytime high will be about 66 degrees. Showers are also likely at night, mostly before 10 p.m.
Friday is expected to be mostly sunny, but there is a chance of "sprinkles" after 1 p.m., the weather service predicts.
