After a sunny start clouds will roll in by midday & this afternoon. Showers arrive during the late afternoon. Highs in the 40's, with the breeze picking up out of the southwest.
Showers will taper down to areas of drizzle & fog during tonight. Some of the fog could become dense. Lows in the low 40's.
Clouds and areas of fog early Tuesday. Although there could be some breaks, the clouds will be stubborn. Unseasonably mild with highs in the 50's to around 60. If breaks of sun do develop it could get above 60 inland.
Wednesday will be the mildest day of the week. Sun has a better chance to mix in after early clouds/fog. Highs in the 60's. If there's enough sun parts of the interior could touch 70 degrees! Record high for BDL is 63 (set in 1930). It will be cooler along the coast. Record high for the month of February is 73.
