Heating things up today! Temperatures are going to surge into the low 80s at the shoreline to near 90° inland. We’ll enjoy lots of sunshine with faint smoke, mostly in western CT. Expect plenty of sunshine tomorrow morning, but some clouds with spotty thundershowers will develop around midday and continue through the afternoon. Some showers may linger into Saturday morning, but I’m optimistic for drier conditions Saturday afternoon/evening.
