The immediate forecast for southwestern Connecticut looks bright -- both day and night -- according to the National Weather Service.

But the "bright" night, courtesy of a brilliantly full moon, comes with a bit of warning: coastal flooding. The NWS says this evening's high tide -- about 11:30 p.m. -- could cause minor coastal flooding because of conditions created by the pull of the full moon, which rises about 8 p.m.

Otherwise, the forecast through the weekend, the NWS says, should be sunny and warm.

Skies today through Sunday should be clear and the daytime high temperatures will be in the low-80s.

And overnight temperatures through the weekend should be in the mid-60s.

That balmy trend, the weather service predicts, continues into early next week.
