"At Windsor Locks, with 8.77" of rain (4.40" surplus for the month), the 31 days go down as the 5 wettest October since records have been kept.

Friday: Mostly sunny, colder. late clouds.

Thursday Night: Partly clear and cold. Interestingly enough, the high temperatures for Wednesday have technically already occurred. Highs are mainly in the mid-40s but, with breezes picking up from the west, should feel even colder. Right now, it looks like the best chance of seeing snow is later Saturday afternoon, overnight and briefly Sunday morning. Temperatures will hover in the 40s and lower 50s after 7:00 am, then they'll drop through the 40s during the course of the afternoon. Overnight lows in the week ahead will mainly be in the 30s. Temps remain below normal for this time of year. The trough with the jet stream should linger into next week as well, although it may modify a little at the very beginning of next week. Some flurries are possible along with another shot of cold weather. Temperatures waste no time dropping into the 30s in the evening.
