Winter in New England… this should be good.
At 853PM, ET, Hartford was reporting a temperature of 31 degrees with clear skies. The Northeast is currently between systems, and a thermal ridge is pressing eastward into the region. Despite what it looks like at the surface, there is actually a weak trough moving through the southeastern US towards the mid-Atlantic aloft, arriving overnight tomorrow.
A quick moving clipper is moving from the Canadian Prairies and will barrel towards New England. The trough from Canada will blunt the sharper trough in the southeastern US, as they will be out of phase. The northern Clipper will lose most of its intensity as it arrives in the Canadian Maritimes. An associated cold front will see what is left of its moisture expended in the Catskills and Adirondacks. Temperatures on Sunday will be cooler, but Hartford will stay dry through the weekend.

All over the map. I suspect southerly flow ahead of that system in Canada will bring cooler Atlantic air, bringing temperatures in close to what guidance suggests. Most other outlets are going well over, thanks to the prospect of full sun. Satellite shows that Connecticut is between systems.
