Another Batch of Rain on the Way
We certainly don't need it, but our current active weather pattern is going to send another period of significant rain our way Friday night and probably again Tuesday. Low pressure forming in the Ohio Valley Friday will track into the Great Lakes, while a secondary low forms on the east coast and tracks toward southern New England. Cloudiness will increase and thicken during Friday with rain arriving Friday evening (based on the current timing). The rain will become moderate to heavy Friday night and indications are that we will see between 0.75"-1.5" across most of Connecticut before it tapers off toward dawn Saturday. Saturday will feature a mixture of sun & clouds. It will become windy as the pressure gradient tightens (see closely spaced isobars/grey lines in image below) and strong wind aloft mixes down to the surface. Some gusts by Saturday evening could be in the 40-50 mph range. A sprinkle or flurry (especially across higher elevations) can't be ruled out Saturday afternoon. Veterans Day Sunday looks dry with a mix of sun & clouds and a high near 45. Another storm is looming for Tuesday.
