Highs in 90s

• Aug 27, 2018 at 6:00 AM

It will be a warm start to the week as highs today and Tuesday will be in the lower 90s.

The heat index values for both days will make it feel like the temperature is in the upper 90s.

The lows will be in the lower 70s. 

Storms are expected Wednesday, something that will usher in cooler weather. Highs on Thursday and Friday will be in the upper 70s, while the lows will fall to the upper 50s to lower 60s.

At this point, the start of the three-day holiday weekend appears promising — sunny skies with highs in the mid 80s and lows in the upper 60s. There is only a 30-percent chance of rain Sunday. That’s good news for Milan and New London, where annual festivals are scheduled, as well as Norwalk, which is having a citywide garage sale.

Today, the sun will rise at 6:52:46 a.m. and set at 8:10:41 p.m.

On Tuesday, the sun will rise at 6:53:46 a.m. and set at 8:09:05 p.m.
