With the chance of showers and thunderstorms in today's forecast, the National Weather Service says stormy conditions could periodically erupt throughout the coming weekend.

Skies will be party sunny this morning across southwestern Connecticut, but there is a possibility of scattered storms after noon. The daytime high temperature will be in the low-80s, the NWS says.

Scattered storms remain a possibility tonight before 11 p.m. Nighttime skies will be cloudy and the temperature will dip to a low of about 67 degrees.

Tomorrow afternoon also brings the potential for scattered showers and thunderstorms after 4 p.m. Otherwise, the day is expected to be mostly sunny, with a high near 83 degrees. Unsettled conditions persist until about 8 p.m. tomorrow, with a low around 70.

On Sunday, the odds increase for showers and thunderstorms -- some could be severe, the NWS warns -- in the afternoon, mainly after 4 p.m. Earlier in the day, skies will be partly sunny, with a high near 79 degrees. South wind could be between 8 and 17 mph.

The outlook for Monday, the weather service say, is sunny and warm, with temperatures in the low-80s.
