A more active and unsettled week (Oct. 9-15) is in store for Wilton with multiple days featuring the chance for rain. It will also remain mild for the majority of the week, so unfortunately this year’s fall foliage is not looking so great.
Monday, Oct. 9: More unfortunate news is that Columbus Day will be wet and rainy. If you were planning on heading to a parade for the holiday, you may want to consider adjusting your plans because it likely will be raining during it. It may be dry during the first couple hours of the day, but by 10 or 11 a.m., the rain will arrive, which may be heavy at times, and it will continue through to about 5 or 6 p.m.. This is all due to the remnants of what once was Hurricane Nate, which slammed the U.S. Gulf coast.
Tuesday, Oct. 10: That mess will clear out as high pressure moves in on Tuesday, allowing for a mainly sunny day. This day will be absolutely beautiful! High temperatures will also be way above average, topping off at around 80 degrees.
Wednesday, Oct. 11: Wednesday will also be nice with crisp, dry air. Skies may not be as clear with sunny to partly cloudy skies forecast. At least it will still be mild and comfortable with a temperatures peaking at 70 degrees.
Thursday, Oct. 12: There is the slight chance for a rain shower Thursday morning, but high pressure to our north and east should keep the moisture associated with a disturbance to our south. Otherwise it will be a mainly cloudy and finally cool day with some sunshine popping out as the sun sets.
Friday, Oct. 13: Friday should be fairly similar as Thursday with 10-20% chance for a shower while it remains mostly cloudy and seasonable.
Saturday, Oct. 14: The weekend should be pretty nice with warmer air beginning to surge in from the south ahead of our next system, which will arrive next Monday. Due to that warm flow, the air will feel a bit sticky, so it will feel more like summer than fall. On Saturday, expect intervals of clouds and sunshine.
Sunday, Oct. 15: Then on Sunday, expect more of the same with sun and clouds and a forecast high temperature in the mid 70s.
