Fairfield weather: Tracking a Christmas storm
Weather for southwestern Connecticut over the next few days should be relatively unremarkable for this time of year, according to the National Weather Service, but it warns there is the potential for a "significant winter storm" on Christmas night.
A "hazardous weather outlook" has been issued for the region for Saturday night into Sunday evening. The storm is expected to track up the East Coast, but the weather service is not saying if the storm will bring rain or snow.
Today, meanwhile, the forecast calls for cloudy skies, with a high near 36 degrees. There will be breezy conditions, with a north wind between 21 and 25 mph. Clouds continue to prevail overnight, with temperatures falling to about 25 and windy, with gusts of up to 16 and 18 mph.
Tomorrow should be mostly sunny, with a daytime high near 38 and a north wind clocking in at about 16 mph. Overnight will be mostly cloudy, with a low around 25. There will be a blustery north wind between 17 and 20 mph.
Mostly sunny skies are predicted for both Thursday and Friday, with daytime high temperatures in the mid-30s.
Saturday, however, is when a white Christmas could be a stormy reality. The NWS will be tracking the track and intensity over the intervening days.
