Showers most of the week with cooler temperatures

Expect showers most of thr week with only Tuesday having partly sunny skies.

The National Weather Service says a cold front approaches the region from the west during the day today before crossing the area during the evening.

Ahead of the front, gusty south-southwest winds will allow high temperatures to rise into the 70s, close to 10 degrees above normal in some spots.

The strongest winds are expected between 11 a.m. and 4 p.m.

Shower chances then increase from west to east this afternoon, with the best chances for rain coming late this afternoon into tonight as the cold front crosses the area.

Temperatures will begin to fall after 7 p.m.

By 7 a.m. Tuesday, temperatures will be between 14 and neatly 20 degrees cooler than twelve hours earlier.

Temperatures will fall into the 50s across much of the area tonight, with a few readings in the upper 40s possible in Litchfield County.

Showers will come to an end by daybreak Tuesday as high pressure builds towards the area.

This will allow partly sunny skies and near normal temperatures to return across much of the region, although with the front remaining just off shore clouds and even a few showers could linger near the Long Island Sound shoreline.
