NWS Forecast: Hot, Stormy Tuesday With Possible Flooding

Soggy end to the weekend; cooling off this work week

Hot and muggy from the morning to the early afternoon, but heavy rains look pretty likely later today into the early evening.

By 1:33 p.m., the service also issued a severe thunderstorm warning for eastern MA, including southern Essex County. Some storms could have gusty winds, small hail and frequent cloud-to-ground lightning. Wed/Thu/Fri will be dry.

Scattered showers and thunderstorms will be possible Wednesday through Friday. This action is ahead of a strong cold front working in here on Tuesday.

From Noon forward in time, thunderstorms will develop.

"At 1:04 p.m., Doppler radar indicated thunderstorms producing heavy rains across the warned area". Highs in the low 90s. Due to this, a Heat Advisory has been posted for Hartford, Tolland and Windham counties this afternoon. Expect cooler and less humid air behind the front.




Plenty of sunshine will be the rule into the weekend with temperatures near or slightly below normal along with comfortable humidity.

That northwesterly flow will usher drier air into CT and dew points will drop into the 50s, so the level of comfort will improve. Up to an inch of rain is expected in most southern areas, with high amounts expected in areas where the storm is especially intense.

Skies should clear overnight and it will be sunny with a high of about 86 Wednesday. They'll then sink south into the Upstate by mid to late afternoon with highs reaching the middle and upper 80s.

We end the week on a nice note.
