The new week (Sept. 26 – Oct. 2) will definitely be an interesting one because there is a lot of uncertainty regarding the forecast, especially for the end of the week and into the weekend.

Monday, Sept. 26:  The week will begin on a beautiful note Monday, featuring mostly sunny skies, although it will be a cool day with temperatures in the low 40s to start, so have the jacket at the bus stop! Later on in the afternoon, expect temperatures to peak into the upper 60s which will feel great under the sunshine, but it will be a bit breezy at times.


Tuesday, Sept. 27:  Now during the Monday night into Tuesday period, I’ll be watching a potent cold front pushing through Wilton, but the timing of when the rain will start and end is still a little unsure. I do know that only a few tenths of an inch of rain will fall. I’m thinking that most of the rain will occur at night, but some rain is still possible in the morning during the commute. Either way, at least some sunshine is expected late.

Wednesday, Sept. 28:  Wednesday will be a gorgeous day with sunny-to-partly-cloudy skies accompanied by warmer temperatures in the low 70s, which is a couple degrees above the average high of 70. It looks like a nice, crisp fall day!

Thursday, Sept. 29:  Then we get to the rest of the week and this is when the uncertainty begins in terms of what weather you can expect. The reason for all this uncertainty is because there is going to be a cut-off low somewhere over the Eastern US. What these cut-off lows do is provide cloudy and unsettled wet weather for several straight days. The question is where will this low be located and how long will it be there for? On Thursday, both of the models agree that it will be a dry day with mostly cloudy skies.


Friday, Sept. 30:  Friday is the day where there is the highest chance for rain, so expect showers throughout the day. I’m not sure if it will be a washout of a day, but it will definitely be a wet day to end the week because of this slow moving weather system.

Saturday, Oct. 1:  We get to the weekend and that is when the uncertainty is at it’s highest because the models do not agree with each other at all! According to the European model, it will be another wet day with showers. On the other hand, the American model has a strong area of high pressure building into the Northeast, making for a nice, sunny weekend. For now, I’m adding showers to my seven-day forecast, but keep in mind that this is subject to change.


Sunday, Oct. 2:  Then for Sunday, things will begin to dry out with only the chance for an afternoon shower if you look at one model, but if you look at the other, it will remain sunny with temperatures right around average.
