Looks like some clearing over Middlesex, New London and Tolland right now.
52 Degrees here in Meriden, CT. Sun is struggling to come out. Yesterday had to be one of the nicest days in CT history. Was down along the coast most of the day with temps about 65 degrees and a nice breeze blowing. The air was so clear, sun shining lots of people out and about. Good weather always brings out the best in people. Took a ride all along the coast then back home and had forgotten how beautiful the coast of Conn. is. Everyone have a wonderful Mother's Day..check out the coast of Conn. perhaps lunch and Len and Joes Fishtail.

6 Strange Weather Cities in 2012 - weather.com

From Stu Ostro. "I would argue no state in the U.S. has seen more extreme weather since the start of 2011 than Connecticut"
Hartford cracked 80 yesterday and looks poised to repeat it today. Late week/weekend shows highs in the upper 70s there. I guess we're back to "normal" May weather, LOL!

Interesting how far eastern LI and far southeast CT show almost no rain on that graphic. If that system goes just a little bit more west this could be one of those "rains that isn't" just like in March.....

Looking at the monthly data. Hartford temp departure for May is exactly 0. Bridgeport is 1 above. I cant ignore that its showing May has been "normal".

So because that surprised me a bit I went to check the "daily" numbers... Sure enough..Day highs were mostly 6-10 below normal BUT the night lows were mostly 6-10 above. And there's your normal

So one can argue days have been below normal and be right but another can argue that a blend of lows and highs shows we been normal. Both ways are correct but naturally we always remember the day temps.(I guess cause we're not sleeping. LOL)

You'll remember warm night temps when you need to crank up the A/C to sleep, LOL!

Actually the temperature pattern you describe is typical of unusually cloudy periods, the clouds both keeping the daytime temperatures down and the nighttime temperatures up. Some say how 'global warming' will really play out is that way, that more clouds will form in reaction and instead of an absolute temperature rise, there's no real change, just that daytime temps go down and nighttime go up. There's some evidence of this happening (Central Park's temperature record shows this a lot over the last few decades, though increasing urbanization and the "heat island effect" can produce this pattern too).

Definitely one of the fallacies of "AVERAGE TEMPS" ..with so much cloud cover the lower temps naturally are higher. However, nobody would mistake this month for being normal temps (except today of course). Its been cool, windy if its sunny or its cloudy. Besides, the warm weather folks have been in hiding..a sure fire way to tell its not to their liking

I was hesitant to say it might not be for you but just seems more likely now. /Thursday Night/Friday morning will be the next (and probably last) chance at frost.

GFS0z Temp forecast for Friday 8am.

Nahh, usually when I'm quiet about something it means there's no threat or interest in it. Few days it disappeared. Now it reappeared but staying way OTS towards Bermuda. Pattern doesnt favor a coastal storm even though there's blocking. Last GFS does dig a trough deep which would be a frost concern, but its stil a week+ out.

weather.com (no sprint) or accuweathercom or weatherusa.net.

It takes a few seconds to sign up for free. Alerts will be sent to phone regarding Tornado or weather warnings.

Why this isnt mandated frustrates me.
