Strong storms could impact part of the state overnight

Posted: Updated:
HARTFORD, CT (WFSB) -

Hot and steamy summer air returned on Monday and it could bring some storms to part of the state during the evening and overnight hours.

The Storm Prediction Center in Oklahoma said the northwestern part of the state is at a “marginal risk,” thanks to an approaching cold front.

"This evening into the overnight hours there is a chance for a shower or thunderstorm as a slow moving cold front approaches our area," said Chief Meteorologist Bruce DePrest.

A combination of strong flow from the Gulf of Mexico, jet stream wind and the front will cook up some storms in central New York.

DePrest said isolated strong to severe thunderstorms are possible, with the biggest threat being heavy rain and cloud-to-ground lightning.

Tuesday is expected to be another warm day with moderate humidity.

"We can expect high temperatures to reach the 80s to near 90 degrees inland with highs in the mid 80’s along the shoreline," DePrest said.

There could be an isolated strong to severe thunderstorm during the afternoon on Tuesday because of a cold front. The likely spot for storms would be eastern Connecticut.

Wednesday will bring lower humidity under a partly cloudy sky.

An afternoon shower is possible on Wednesday as well.
