Showers, strong thunderstorms to pass through the state Tuesday

Posted: Updated:
HARTFORD, CT (WFSB) -

Monday night will feel muggy and will make for a potentially stormy Tuesday.

Overnight lows Monday will be in the 60s to near 70 degrees and a few showers and isolated thunderstorms will develop after midnight as a cold front nears the state.

“Scattered showers and thunderstorms are a good bet tomorrow,” said Chief Meteorologist Bruce DePrest. “There will be plenty of humidity, but the degree of instability will greatly depend on sunshine.”

Temperatures are expected to reach the low to mid 80s, and dew points will be in the 60s to near 70s.

“The cold front will slowly move through Southern New England throughout the day and this will allow more showers and thunderstorms to develop,” DePrest said.

Rain will be falling in some parts of the state during the morning commute, and more showers and storms will fire up during the afternoon.

“At this point, a severe weather outbreak appears unlikely. However, a few storms could be strong to severe,” DePrest said.

Some storms could pack a punch in some parts of the state DePrest said, but not everywhere.

The cold front will move off to the east by Wednesday morning, where we will see mostly sunny skies, lower humidity and highs between 80 and 85 degrees.

A similar situation will be had for the end the work-week.
