There should be intervals of afternoon sun pushing our temperatures into the lower 80s Tuesday, and low-mid 80s Wednesday.

The first week of April will see the cooler pattern that we've grown so accustomed to in March exert itself once again with temperatures trending a bit cooler than average for much of the week. Some of our southern neighborhoods may climb just a touch above 60°! Expect a few isolated showers early with lows in the upper 30s and lower 40s. It races to the east rather quickly but we could see a lingering shower in the early evening hours.

Overview: Milder temperatures and more rain showers develop for the work week, with heavy rainfall possible Wednesday into Thursday.

Bookmaker Ladbrokes has slashed odds on Easter Sunday being a record breaker on the weather front. We remain active right into the start of next week with more chance of wintry weather.

Wednesday night: A slight chance of showers, then a chance of showers and thunderstorms after 1 a.m.

The Met Office says: "Often cloudy over the next few days with showers or longer spells of rain and a risk of snow at times, mainly high ground in the north".

Breezy southerly winds will continue until the frontal system arrives late Wednesday night into Thursday.

SATURDAY NIGHT: Scattered rain showers will be possible Saturday night into Sunday morning, with an overnight low temperature of 38 degrees. For now, we a forecasting a high of 62 degrees for the Greater Hartford Area.

For now, we are forecasting a partly to mostly sunny, cool Monday with lows in the 20s and highs in the lower 50s.

Our next storm system will introduce an extended period of scattered showers, probably holding off until almost Midnight Tuesday night.
