Westport weather: Still spring in name only
Published 6:01 am, Friday, March 22, 2013
Spring continues to be more of an "official," rather than "actual," season today in southwestern Connecticut.
That's because temperatures today are expected to rise no higher than the upper-30s, according to the National Weather Service, with a northwest wind 7 to 15 mph. Likewise, tonight will be colder than "spring" would suggest, with the temperature dipping to a low in the mid-20s and a northwest wind 8 to 11 mph.
Tomorrow should be mostly sunny, with a high temperature near 45 degrees. Nighttime will be mostly clear, with a low temperature in the mid-20s.
Sunday also is expected to be mostly sunny, with a high temperature in the mid-40s.
There is a chance of snow overnight Sunday as clouds move in and the temperature falls to about 30 degrees. Chance of nighttime precipitation is 30 percent, according to the NWS.
Monday morning could be snowy, the NWS says, with a 50 percent chance of wintry precipitation -- starting as mostly snow, changing to a snow-rain mix -- through the afternoon. The high temperature will be about 40 degrees. Nighttime will be cloudy with a low temperature about 30 degrees.
The outlook for Tuesday, according to the weather service, is sunny and temperatures in the 40s.
