More storms are on tap for Wednesday

Posted: Updated:

Warm and muggy air brought isolated showers to some parts of the state on Tuesday, prompting flood advisories.

Chief Meteorologist Bruce DePrest said while some towns had little or no rainfall, others had between 1.5 inches and 2.5 inches.

"One area that saw that much rain today was in portions of Seymour and Ansonia as well as Oxford and Shelton," DePrest said.

The threat of heavy rain continued as the evening went on.

"This evening there will be numerous showers with embedded downpours and perhaps even some lightning and thunder. Localized street flooding is possible," DePrest said.

The threat of storms will diminish on Tuesday night but it could start to ramp up again toward Wednesday morning as a cold front moves in.

With the chance for downpours also comes the possibility for thunder and lightning in some parts of the state, however severe weather is not expected.

DePrest said on Wednesday there could be some localized flooding, and temperatures will be in the upper 70s, lower 80s. More storms will roll in during Wednesday afternoon.

"The humidity will remain high most of the day, but it will start to drop off in the afternoon and evening as the cold fronts settles to the south of Connecticut," DePrest said.

Any showers that linger into the evening hours will come to an end and the clouds are expected to clear by midnight.

He said Thursday will be a near perfect summer day with plenty of sunshine, low humidity and a breeze.

"The mercury with then dip into the 50s in many locations Thursday night thanks to clear skies and diminishing winds," DePrest said.

Friday will be a similar scene with sunshine, low humidity and light winds.
