Weekend forecast looks great for festivals

• Aug 28, 2018 at 6:00 AM

The holiday weekend forecast appears promising at this point as mostly sunny skies are predicted.

That’s good news for the Milan Melon Festival and New London’s Firelands Labor Day Festival, as well as Norwalk’s citywide garage sale — all of which take place this weekend.

The highs on Saturday and Sunday will be in the mid 80s — temperatures that will be more pleasant than today, when the heat index will make it feel like it’s in the mid 90s. The weekend lows will be in the 60s.

There is a slight chance of rain Saturday night and again Sunday; otherwise, dry weather should prevail.

That won’t be the case Wednesday, however. Showers are likely during the day and again at night. The storm front will bring cooler weather, dropping the high temperatures on Thursday and Friday to the 70s and the low on Thursday into the upper 50s.

The weather should be ideal for high school football on Friday night, with party cloudy skies and temperatures in the 60s projected.

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

On Wednesday, the sun will rise at 6:54:47 a.m. and set at 8:07:29 p.m.
