High heat expected Sunday following storm damage

Posted: Updated:

High temperatures and humidity is expected Sunday following severe storms Saturday night.

Thunderstorms crossed the state throughout the night into Windham and Tolland County affecting towns including Woodstock, Putnam, Ellington, and Vernon. 

These same strong thunderstorms, which prompted Meteorologist Mike Cameron to issue warnings, moved through the state into Northern Hartford County, the Naugatuck Valley, the Wallingford area, and New Haven at a fast pace. 

Vernon had damage throughout the town, such as trees and power lines down.

While at first the traveling storms weakened, they continued to draw power from residual heat and humidity from the day as they moved.

As the storms entered the state from the west, they grazed the Salisbury area, as well as further south in Danbury, and further south in Fairfield.

Meteorologist Mike Cameron recorded unofficial high temperatures of 99 degrees in Bridgeport that surpassed record highs taken in 1988 and 2005 of 93 degrees.

There were two recorded highs in the state also in Windsor Locks where the temperature surpassed the record of 94 degrees.

As for Sunday, meteorologist Mike Cameron, with high temperatures and humidity as the same tropical flow continues into the state.
