HARTFORD, CT (WFSB) -

Heavy rain is going to hit the state Thursday, Thursday night and into Friday morning, which could result in flooding in some parts of Connecticut.

The National Weather Service issued a flash flood watch for the entire state until Friday in advance of some heavy rain moving into the area.

There is a flash flood warning for central Hartford County until 8 p.m.

Some parts of northern Connecticut have seen up to 2 inches of rain.

Drivers are asked to avoid water covered roads, and watch for road closures.

There are reports of flooding in West Hartford and Bloomfield, and a tree is down in Hartford.

This June is the second wettest June on record.  The all time June record was in 1982 at 13.6 inches of rain.

Connecticut was at the fourth wettest at the start of Thursday, but by 8 p.m. it was second wettest.

There's going to be a lot of cloud cover in the next seven days with periods of showers and thunderstorms, according to Channel 3 Early Warning Weather Meteorologists. That will keep the high temperatures into the 80s and will remain humid.

Some days will be stormier, and thunderstorms that pop up can produce strong winds, heavy rain and dangerous cloud-to-ground lightning, WFSB meteorologists said.

The storms are coming on the heels of an area of low pressure that's moving toward the northeast along with an associated warm front and cold front.
