Technical Discussion:
A weak upper level shortwave passes through the area later today. Before that system reaches the area, a mild and tranquil day is expected. Based off of satellite imagery and morning observations, temperatures should rise into the low and mid-50's across the board. A few clouds are expected later in the day, possibly resulting in a stray sprinkle or light rain shower.
High pressure moves off the Southeast coast on Saturday, keeping skies in Connecticut partly to mostly sunny. Once again, expecting highs to reach at least the lower 50's.
A frontal system approaches on Sunday, bringing a period of rain late in the day. Showers may begin as early as 2 or 3 p.m. in western sections and the rain quickly comes to an end around midnight in eastern parts of the area.
Monday turns mild ahead of an approaching cold front. Highs are expected the reach the mid to upper 50's, but it is possible for temperatures to reach 60 degrees. Both the NAM and Euro 2-m temps brought lower 60's into the state. It all depends on how much sunshine can break through the clouds. 
A strong cold front brings showers late Monday night into early Tuesday. The rain could end as a touch of wet snow inland, but little or no accumulation is expected.
Clearing skies and cooler temperatures are expected for Tuesday and Wednesday. 

Today: A few clouds, an afternoon sprinkle is possible. Highs in the low to mid-50's.
Tonight: Mostly clear skies. Lows around 30 inland, low to mid-30's shore.
Saturday: Fair skies and pleasant. Highs in the low to mid-50's.
Easter Sunday: Increasing clouds with late-day rain. Highs in the lower 50's.
Monday: Mild day, PM rain showers may change to snow. Highs in the mid to upper 50's.
Tuesday: AM flurry/sprinkle possible, otherwise much cooler. Highs in the mid-40's.
Wednesday: Mostly sunny, but cool. Highs in the mid to upper 40'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.
