Early Warning Weather

Thunder, showers roll across the state this morning

Posted: Updated:
HARTFORD, CT (WFSB) -

Some folks woke up to some rumbles of thunder that were accompanied by lightning Tuesday morning.

Meteorologist Scot Haney said some showers moved into the state as part of a disturbance aloft that was traversing through southern New England.

A flood advisory is in effect for Hartford, Tolland and Windham counties.

"A few of these showers are producing moderate to heavy rain," Haney said.

Track them with the all new Early Warning Pinpoint Doppler here.

As of 8:55 a.m., the heavy rain was racing out of northeastern Connecticut and into Rhode Island, according to Haney.

The system should move out of the region during the afternoon hours.

"The showers will end and the sky will partially clear," Haney said. "Temperatures should reach the upper 70s and lower 80s by day’s end."

The sky should clear by Tuesday night with comfortable lows between 55 and 65.

For Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, expect partly-to-mostly sunny skies. However, temperatures will be on the rise once again.

"Wednesday should be seasonably warm with highs in the middle 80s," Haney forecasted. "Thursday should be warmer with highs 85-90. Thanks to a southwesterly flow, Friday will be hotter and more humid. We are currently forecasting highs in the low and middle 90s."

A cold front will move through for the first part of the weekend.

Haney forecasted a few showers for Saturday morning followed by clearing skies for the afternoon.

"However, cool air will lag behind the front," he said. "Therefore, there is the potential for more hot weather Saturday afternoon with highs in the low and middle 90s for a second day in a row."

The humidity should drop off with the passage of the front.

Sunday should feature highs in the mid-to-upper 80s under mostly sunny skies.
