Threat for storms continues Wednesday evening

Posted: Updated:

With the threat of thunderstorms and localized flooding, Wednesday was declared an Early Warning Weather Day.

A flash flood watch was issued for Windham County from 1 p.m. to 9 p.m. 

The threat of heavy rain continues for Wednesday evening, said Chief Meteorologist Bruce DePrest.

"There will be numerous showers with embedded downpours and even some lightning and thunder," DePrest said.

He added that localized street flooding is possible, especially in the eastern part of the state "as these storms will be moving slowly due to a light atmospheric wind pattern aloft."

The threat for storms will diminish later Wednesday evening as a cold front moves in.

Wednesday night will be a lot better sleeping weather as the humidity level drops.

"You’ll definitely notice the difference when stepping outside tomorrow morning," DePrest said.

Thursday and Friday are expected to be beautiful summer days.
