New Canaan forecast: Cloudy day, 'Super Moon' night
Published 7:29 am, Saturday, May 5, 2012
This cloudy morning brings a slight chance of showers across southwestern Connecticut, according to the National Weather Service -- with minor coastal flooding triggered by tonight's "Super Moon."
Even though the possibility of precipitation dissipates by about 11 a.m., the NWS the rest of the day will be mostly cloudy as the daytime temperature rises to a high in the mid-60s. There will be an east wind around 7 mph.
Tonight also will be mostly cloudy, with a low temperature around 50 degrees.
The NWS also warns about possible coastal flooding tonight, primarily from 10 p.m. to 1 a.m. Sunday. The flooding, which the NWS is likely to be "minor," may be caused by a "Super Moon" phenomenon tonight, which occurs when the full moon is closest to Earth and exerts a stronger gravitational pull on the tides.
Tomorrow should be mostly sunny, with a high temperature rising to the upper-60s. It will partly cloudy tomorrow night with the temperature falling to the upper-40s.
Monday should be mostly sunny, with a high near 67 degrees. There will be a slight chance of rain after 10 p.m. Monday as skies cloud over and the temperature drops to a low of 50 degrees.
The outlook for Tuesday, the weather service predicts, is for a chance of rain and a high temperature of about 60 degrees.
