DISCUSSION:

 

Good Friday morning I’m 22News Storm Team Meteorologist Nick Bannin. After a mainly dry Thursday with just some light drops in the evening, we expect shower chances to go back up today. We’re watching an area of showers moving northwest through Connecticut this early morning. I expect these showers to give us a chance for wet weather in areas mainly west of I-91 as we get closer to 6am.

The day overall will feature the chance for a few showers from time to time, but also periods of dry weather. It’s possible we could even get a few holes to open up in the clouds today, but it will still be mostly cloudy overall. High temperatures today will be noticeably more comfortable as we head close to 60º this afternoon.

More widespread showers arrive late afternoon and into tonight. We’ll also have some drizzle around tonight. If you’re heading out for Friday evening fun, take the umbrella with you.

The weekend starts okay, but not great. We’ll have mostly cloudy skies with a few breaks of sun possible again. There will still be the risk for a few showers as well as some areas of drizzle. Highs should reach the low 60s tomorrow.

The wettest time of the weekend comes Sunday morning, but we’re looking increasingly bright Sunday afternoon.

We’ll guide you through the weekend rain chances, plus the showers around today on 22News starting at 4:30AM.
