Record-breaking temperatures and powerful winds for Thanksgiving

Record-breaking temperatures and powerful winds for Thanksgiving

It will be cooler during the day on Wednesday with a high of 61 degrees, under sunny skies.

We're off to a much warmer start this Wednesday morning with temperatures in the mid-40s to mid-50s for most of us.

Connecticut Meteorologists are breaking down the weather throughout the entire holiday weekend. "Bridgeport ends the month at 4 place with 7.37" of rain (3.73" surplus or October).

For tonight, we'll find clear skies and breezy winds this evening.

The highest probability of rain is between 1 and 8 a.m. Wednesday. A nippy, polar air mass filling in behind Tuesday's clipper will limit high temperatures to the low and middle 30s, but we will take a lot of the wind out of the equation.

Patchy areas of frost will greet many on Thanksgiving morning, with temperatures only warming up into the upper 50s to lower 60s tomorrow afternoon despite the sunshine. Whether you're in the skies, on the roadways or staying put this year, here's what you need to know about the weather during this holiday week.

FRIDAY: Sunny, with a high near 49. There's some flurries, and winds are quite gusty.

Tonight.Mostly cloudy. Small rain chance. Southwest wind 6 to 10 miles per hour.

Wednesday Night.Partly cloudy. Small rain chance possible. Wind: S 5 miles per hour.

A northwesterly flow of colder air will take over Saturday night. Temps will be slow to cool thanks to increasing winds out of the southwest, picking up to 10-20 miles per hour and gusting over 25 miles per hour at times.

Turkey Day doesn't look half bad. Highs will only be in the 30s again, and it will feel colder with the wind chill in the 20s. A brief warmup Friday pushes highs to near 50. Temperatures in 2016 were higher and slightly lower than usual with highs at 77 degrees on Thursday and Friday before dropping to a low of 41 on Sunday. Highs will fall back into the 60s on Saturday and eventually into the 50s on Sunday.
