Storms move out, heat moves in

Posted: Updated:

Heavy rains falling throughout eastern part of the state on Thursday night.

The storms, which could bring lightning, thunder and torrential downpours, were moving through the state.

“The main event is going to be coming through in the next couple of hours,” WFSB Meteorologist Bruce DePrest said.

There will be showers and storms in the state around 7 p.m., but DePrest said they will “rapidly diminish.”

A severe thunderstorm watch was issued for Litchfield County until 7 p.m.

Thursday night was humid. However, the temperature did not reach 90 degrees.

“It feels like the tropics out there,” DePrest said.

Temperatures will be in the 70s and 80s on Thursday night.

“Overnight will be mild and very muggy with areas of fog.  Overnight lows will range from 65-75 degrees,” DePrest said.

There is also possibility of dense fog on Thursday night.

Friday is expected to be hotter than Thursday, DePrest said.

“It is going to be very, very hot,” DePrest said.

The highs could be 94 and even 95 degrees in some spots, DePrest said.

There is a possibility of showers popping up on Friday.

“It’s going to be a low probability tomorrow,” DePrest said. “It should be mainly dry.”

DePrest said the temperatures will “cool off a little bit over the weekend” with temperatures in the high 80s.
