HARTFORD, CT (WFSB) -

As expected, Tuesday brought some beneficial rain along with more storms on Tuesday evening.

It was an Early Warning Weather Day.

Heavy rainfall moved from west to east across the state over the course of the morning commute.

A flash flood watch was in effect for Fairfield and northern New Haven counties, but it's been canceled.

There was a bit of a lull on Tuesday afternoon, however a line of storms were moving toward the state that could potentially bring some rain and thunder and lightning on Tuesday night.

"The one limiting factor preventing widespread strong or severe weather this evening is that clouds lingered all afternoon, keeping the atmosphere from further destabilizing," said Meteorologist Mark Dixon.

"As we head through the evening hours, do anticipate more rain (albeit scattered, not like what we experienced earlier in the day)," he said. "We can’t rule out some rumbles of thunder, too."

Once the front moves east of the state, some partial clearing may take place toward day break.

Wednesday may begin with some isolated showers or storms.

In the wake of the cold front, those storms would arrive during the afternoon or evening hours.

"It will all be compliments of cold air aloft, combined with daytime heating," Dixon added.
