Rain, clouds and maybe a thunderstorm are in store for southwestern Connecticut today, according to the National Weather Service.
And, the NWS predicts, the rest of the week is expected to be pretty much the same.
The daytime high temperature should rise to the mid-50s, and it will be breezy, with winds from the south at between 17 to 24 mph then becoming north with gusts as high as 38 mph. New rainfall could total between one-quarter and one-half inch.
There is a chance of showers tonight before 9 p.m., then clearing, as the temperature falls to around 35 degrees. The northwest wind will be between 17 and 20 mph.
Tomorrow, clouds move in again as the temperature rises to a high of about 50 degrees. There is a chance of showers later, mainly after 9 p.m. The overnight low should be about 40 degrees.
More rain is possible Thursday, the NWS says, with a high temperature of about 45. Overnight, showers are possible, mostly in the early-morning hours of Friday. The low temperature will be around 38.
Rain is also in the forecast later Friday, and the longer-term weekend outlet is not much brighter, according to the weather service.
