More rain is expected across the region today, according to the National Weather Service, but the threat of some overnight snow that had been forecast earlier appears to be fading.
There is expected to be patchy fog early this morning as showers fall periodically in southwestern Connecticut, with the daytime high temperature reaching the mid-50s. There will be a north wind between 3 and 11 mph.
While there remains a slim possibility of snow overnight, the NWS says precipitation in coastal regions is likely to be rain. The temperature will fall to the mid-30s and it will be breezy, with a north wind 13 to 16 mph, increasing to between 22 and 25 mph. Gusts could even reach as high as 39 mph.
Tomorrow should be sunny, the NWS says, with a high temperature in the mid-40s. There will be a west wind 17 to 20 mph, decreasing to between 9 and 12 mph. Winds, however, could gust as high as 33 mph. Tomorrow night should be mostly clear, with a low around 30 degrees.
Friday should be mostly sunny, with a high near 47 degree. Nighttime will be partly cloudy, with a low around 33 degrees.
The outlook for Saturday, the weather service predicts, is for sunny skies with a high temperature near 42.
