Hermine's remnants loom, continue to bring showers

Posted: Updated:

The remnants of Hermine remained south of Connecticut Wednesday and caused scattered shower activity to drift into the state.

Meteorologist Scot Haney said the storm is traveling westward, but it's weakening.

"While you're waking up to rain in parts of the state, you can expect a primarily cloudy day, perhaps an interval of sunshine from time to time, but it will be limited, with the chance for an occasional shower, as what's left of Hermine meanders to our south," Haney said.

Track the showers with Early Warning Pinpoint Doppler here.

Temperatures for Wednesday look to be a bit warmer than Tuesday with highs in the upper 70s and low 80s.

"It will again be breezy, but not quite as windy," Haney said.

Then comes the heat.

"As we head toward the end of the week, we’re still expecting a return to summer-like heat and humidity," Haney said.

Thursday will start with temps in the mid-60s. By the afternoon, however, they'll rise to near 90 degrees inland.

"A storm system will bring a chance for rain [Thursday] night, but any rain should end by daybreak Friday," Haney said.

The week will close out with mostly sunny skies.

Haney said it'll still be hot on Friday with highs near 90, but it'll be slightly less humid.

"Saturday looks to be fantastic as this point," he said. "While the humidity will be up, as compared to Friday, it will be dry with a partly sunny sky."

Sunday looks to be partly to mostly cloudy with a chance for rain. They may even be some thunderstorms thanks to a cold front that's expected to move through the region.
