Chilly weekend on tap

By Norwalk Reflector staff • Feb 9, 2019 at 6:00 AM

Norwalk came ever so close to another record-high temperature Thursday.

It reached 60 — one degree shy of the record set in 1925.

This past week, when daily highs were either in the 50s or 60s, records were tied or broken Sunday (56 degrees) and Monday (60 degrees).

Don’t expect more of that kind of warmth anytime soon, however.

Today’s forecast calls for chilly weather amid sunny skies, as the high will reach only the mid 20s with wind chill values near zero.

Tonight’s low will be around 12.

It will be slightly warmer Sunday, when the high will be 32 and the low will be 23. Snow is likely, but not much accumulation is expected.

Next week will see highs mostly in the 30s and lows in the 20s, although Tuesday’s high could reach the mid 40s accompanied by rain.

Today, the sun will rise at 7:31:47 a.m. and set at 5:57:32 p.m.

On Saturday, the sun will rise at 7:30:33 a.m. and set at 5:58:47 p.m.

And on Monday, the sun will rise at 7:29:18 a.m. and set at 6:00:01 p.m.
