And it will stay that way for the next week, which is, appropriately enough, spring break in many school districts in the area.
Thanks to a high pressure off the mid-Atlantic coast, the weather is dry and unseasonably warm with sunny skies, according to the National Weather Service.
High temps in Fairfield County on Sunday topped 60 degrees, which is 5 to 10 degrees above normal, in most areas with overnight lows in the mid-40s, a few degrees above normal, too, the National Weather Service said.
Highs on Monday will be in the mid- to upper 60s, which is 10 to 15 degrees above normal.
Tuesday should be a few degrees warmer, with highs in the low to mid-70s.
Here is the forecast for the rest of the week:
- Wednesday will be partly sunny, with a high near 65.
- Thursday will be mostly sunny, with a high near 60.
- Friday will be partly sunny, with a high near 55.
- Saturday will be sunny, with a high near 56.
