Chilly morning, and a colder week ahead

Yes, there is a nip in the air this morning.

But by Thursday you may be looking back and feeling like this was a heat wave, the National Weather Service advises.

Enjoy the next two days of seasonable temperatures, with daytime highs in the 60s. The low readings tonight will dip into the 30s inland, near Danbury with the rest of the area in the middle to upper 40s.

We haven’t had that killing frost yet, but this week should finally nip the roses and get rid of whatever biting insects remain.


Here is the extended forecast for the shoreline:
