Connecticut may not have to worry about Tropical Storm Colin, but a cold front may stir up scattered showers and thunderstorms on Tuesday.

There is a chance for some thunderstorms in parts of the state Tuesday evening, Chief Meteorologist Bruce DePrest said, however most towns will remain dry.

"An isolated strong to severe storm is possible in Connecticut, but Rhode Island and Eastern Massachusetts may be the prime spot for more widespread thunderstorm activity and perhaps a few severe storms," he said.

Track the storms with Early Warning Pinpoint Doppler here.

Overnight there will be a clear sky, and temperatures will dip into the 50s in some locations by dawn.

Highs on Wednesday will only be in the 60s to near 70 degrees, and there will be a brisk breeze that could gust as high as 30 mph.

The sky will be cloudy and showers are likely.

DePrest said hail is likely if any thunderstorms develop.

Thursday will be breezy but cool, with highs only around 70 degrees.
