Yesterday's blustery winds have blown away from southwestern Connecticut, and today is the first of a sunny-day stretch before a mid-week wintry threat, according to the National Weather Service.

Today's high temperature will rise to the low-40s under clear skies, with a northwest wind between 11 and 14 mph.

Tonight will be mostly clear, with a low around 29 degrees and a north wind at 6 mph, then becoming south.

Tomorrow will also be sunny, with a high near 52 degrees. Nighttime will be mostly clear, with a low temperature around 34 degrees, the NWS says.

Tuesday promises to be sunny as well, with a daytime high in the upper-40s. Clouds move in overnight as the temperature registers a low in the low-30s.

Rain -- and possibly snow -- are in the outlook for Wednesday, the weather service predicts. It will be cloudy and the temperature will hit a high in the upper-30s.
