Above is a regional weather map from 5 p.m. on December 3rd, 2012.


High pressure over northern New England has kept relatively dry air in place throughout the day on Monday. This combined with warming aloft allowed high temperatures to reach through the 50's. A few spots in southern Connecticut managed to reach 60 degrees.


As high pressure slides east, a warm front is expected to move northward through New England on Tuesday. This frontal passage may be associated with clouds and fog in the morning hours. A few sprinkles are possible, but conditions look more dry than wet. Beyond that, as clouds break for sunshine, temperature will quickly rebound. High temperatures on Tuesday should reach the upper 50's across most areas and some towns could reach into the lower 60's. The areas that have the highest probability of getting into the 60's would be across Fairfield County and the Connecticut River Valley. If clouds move out faster, temperatures could go even higher. The models show a nice warm layer aloft between 850 and 950mb, but the low level moisture looks to minimize daytime heating down to the surface.
