Wednesday was cold. Thursday was mild. Friday will be cold again. There’s no doubt, it’s a topsy turvy weather pattern.
Sometimes, the most interesting part of the weather is taking it apart after it’s happened.
Take a look at this graph of temperatures at Meriden, CT from Wednesday afternoon through Thursday morning. The temperature plunged, from 22º at 7:00 PM to 5º at midnight. By 1:00 AM, it was back up to 21º.
In total, the temperature swung 33º in 12 hours. Wow. For Connecticut, that’s unusual.
