Westport weather: A 'Super' day, relatively speaking
Published 7:36 am, Sunday, February 6, 2011
Today promises to be a sunny day in southwestern Connecticut, with temperatures edging up to 40 degrees -- a bright change from yesterday's chilly drizzling and dismal mess.
It's a forecast a lot more pleasant than the wintry weather hovering over Dallas, Texas, where the Super Bowl will be played later today. There, even though the daytime high temperature will be a few degrees higher, the region continues to be buffeted by mixed snow and cold rain.
But for this area, the National Weather Service, for the first time in days has issued no winter storm "advisories" or "warnings."
There should be breezy conditions in the early part of the day with a west wind of 17 to 20 mph, decreasing to between 7 and 10 mph.
Tonight will be cloudy, with a low around 27 degrees, according to the NWS.
Tomorrow under cloudy skies, there is a slight chance of rain after 3 p.m. The daytime high will be about 39 degrees.
The rain could mix with snow later, continuing overnight into early Tuesday. New snow accumulation of less than one-half inch is possible.
On Tuesday morning, there is a chance of snow and freezing rain, mainly before 9 a.m., the NWS says. The skies will clear later, with the daytime high temperature rising to about 35 degrees. There will be a northwest wind 10 to 13 mph, increasing to between 21 and 24 mph, with gusts as high as 36 mph.
Wednesday should be mostly sunny and breezy, with a high near 27.
