February 5, 2019

Enjoy the warm temperatures Tuesday because tempertatures will be more than 30 degrees colder Wednesday morning.

Daytime highs will range from the 50s to near 60 in some locales. An abrupt end to the unseasonable temperatures will come as a cold front crosses the region this afternoon into the evening, allowing a return to climatological normals. Overnight lows will generally fall to the mid 20s to lower 30s.

Temperatures will begin to slide after 3 p.m. after a high of 62 degrees.

By 9 p.m., the temperature will be in the low 40s; by 6 a.m., it will be 27 degrees in the Danbury area and a few degrees warmer along the shore.

Rain moves in Wednesday night and will be with us through most of Friday.

The National Weather Service says colder temperatures in the northern half of Connecticut could cause some icing on the roads Thursday morning.
