Technical Discussion:

Cold air remains wedged in, so temperatures have trended cooler in the forecast. Based on morning obs and MOS guidance, believe most areas stay in the 30's as the shoreline makes a run at 40, however DXR was already up to 38F at 10 a.m., so southwestern CT could bump into the 40's. A warm front doesn't clear until late tonight, so as some moisture moves in there could be patchy freezing drizzle in the hills. Otherwise expecting temperatures to rise through the 30's after midnight.
Wednesday is a spring-like day with mild temperatures, despite cloud-cover. Winds increase ahead of a strong cold front and there is a slight risk of thunder late in the day. A period of strong winds and heavy rain is expected around midnight. This is when temperatures reach their maximum and steady or falling readings are expected for much of Thursday.
A weak shortwave swings around on Friday. Moisture looks limited, but still believe a flurry or two is possible, mainly in the morning. 
Saturday features a quick break in the action, but clouds should increase later in the day ahead of another shortwave. Flurries are possible on Sunday, but it all depends on how much energy and moisture are associated with a weak area of low pressure that passes through. Either way, a significant storm is not likely.

Today: Mainly overcast. Highs ranging from the mid-30's to near 40.
Tonight: Patchy drizzle and fog. A few icy spots in the hills. Temps rising through the 30's.
Wednesday: Very mild. Rain/wind/fog at night, possible thunder. Highs in the mid-50's.
Thursday: Clearing, windy and turning cooler. Temperatures steady/falling into the 40's.
Friday: Clouds and sunshine, an AM flurry is possible. Highs in the low to mid-30's.
Saturday: Increasing clouds. Highs in the upper 20's to mid-30's.
Sunday: Mostly cloudy, possible flurries. Highs in the low to mid-30's.

Note: Inland temperatures are an average. Often times, outlying areas may be a few degrees cooler than the advertised temperature on the 6-day graphic.
