Spring break has sadly come to an end and we’re all back to work and school. At least the weather for the first half of the week (April 17-23) will be beautiful before rain and cooler temperatures move in for the second portion.
Monday, April 17: On Monday, temperatures will be closer to average, but still above average by about 10 degrees, in comparison to the wild heat we just experienced Easter Sunday, which was over 20 degrees above average. Highs will peak into the upper 60s under mostly sunny skies with a few passing clouds at times.
Tuesday, April 18: Heading into Tuesday, the weather will remain gorgeous. It will be a classic, spring day, featuring sunny skies and comfortable temperatures in the low 60s. If you’re an allergy sufferer from the pollen, however, tree pollen is high, so take precautions.
Wednesday, April 19: Cooler temperatures and wetter weather will begin to set up shop on Wednesday. Some sunshine early will yield to light afternoon and evening showers at times. At the same time, temperatures will be almost 10 degrees below average, hitting only in the low 50s.
Thursday, April 20: Thursday likely will be the wettest day out of our seven-day stretch, with rounds of light rain moving through Wilton throughout the day. This time of the year, it’s common to experience backdoor cold fronts, which are fronts that bring in cooler air originating from Canada and moving southwestward. We may be right on that boundary between the warm and cool air, so the temperature forecasts for both this day and Friday are difficult.
Friday, April 21: On Friday, we should be in the 50s with more showers, this time in the morning, clearing to mostly cloudy skies to finish off the week.
Saturday, April 22: That wet and cool weather should leave just in time for the weekend. It won’t be as warm as last weekend with the 80-degree temperatures on Easter, but it will still be seasonable and comfortable. Highs will be around 60 degrees on Saturday under sunny to partly-cloudy skies.
Sunday, April 23: Clouds from a storm system expected early next week will stream in on Sunday. These will be high clouds, making for a milky white but bright sky. It will still be a nice, spring day with highs pretty similar to Saturday’s.
