Temperatures are on the rise over the next few days as summer wanes in southwestern Connecticut.

The National Weather Service says the daytime high temperature will rise to the mid- to upper-80s today through Thursday before falling back to typical late-summer levels by the weekend.

Skies will be sunny today as the temperature crests in the mid-80s, with a west wind 3 to 8 mph.

Tonight will be mostly clear, with a low temperature in the mid-60s, with a southwest wind around 6 mph becoming west after midnight.

Tomorrow will also be sunny, with a high temperature in the upper-80s. Patchy fog will settle over parts of the region overnight as the temperature dips to mid-60s.

Thursday brings a chance of showers and thunderstorms to the region, mainly after 3 p.m. Otherwise, skies will be partly sunny, with a high temperature in the mid-80s. Odds of daytime precipitation will be about 30 percent, the NWS says.

There remains a 30 percent chance of precipitation Thursday night, mainly before 9 p.m., as the temperature dips to the mid-60s.

Friday is expected to be mostly sunny, with a high temperature about 80 degrees. Nighttime will be partly cloudy, with a low temperature about 60 degrees.

The outlook for Saturday, according to the weather service, is sunny and temperatures in the 70s.
