All around the city Monday, folks took to the outdoors as the temperature rose to a high of 71.8 degrees — even at Wesleyan University's Foss Hill despite classes being out on spring break.
It was a perfect day for jog, some gardening or yardwork and as soon as the bell rang for the end of day for the and , kids ran home and changed into tees and shorts.
The temperature record was easily broken today with a measurement of 72 degrees at Bradley Airport in Windsor Locks — the highest ever recorded was 69 degrees on March 12, 1977, according to NBC Connecticut, which reports the average temperature for March 12 is 46 degrees.
Tomorrow's weather won't be nearly as nice — so get out there and enjoy daylight savings time's extra hour this afternoon. Temps are expected to be between 45 and 66 degrees, with a 50-percent chance of rain in the morning, partly sunny in the afternoon, with a 20-percent chance of rain in the evening.
