A warm front is very slow to move northward through Connecticut.

Chilly air, which is more dense than warm air, remains locked into some of the valleys. The result is a wide swing in temperatures across the state.

Temperatures vary widely across the state with mid-40's in the Connecticut River Valley to the lower 60's across eastern portions of the state. Most communities not located in the valley region are in the 50's.

It's very interesting that readings are about 10 degrees warmer in the Berkshires than they are near Hartford, AND Windham Airport is 60!

Looking ahead, the overall pattern looks to stay warm, but that doesn't stop cold air damming (CAD). More information on CAD from Steve Mac
