Storms expected to come to an end this evening

Posted: Updated:

Some heavy showers were moving through the state on Wednesday afternoon.

Chief Meteorologist Bruce DePrest said the storms are the result of a cold front that is moving in Connecticut's direction.

Storms started moving through the state as of about 3 p.m. Some of the storms brought heavy downpours to parts of the state.

Track any that arise with Early Warning Pinpoint Doppler here.

DePrest said any showers will end on Wednesday evening.

In addition to some storms, temperatures reached 90 degrees at Bradley International Airport on Wednesday too.

"We have now had 31 days this year with a high temperature of 90 degrees or higher," DePrest said.

Temperatures are expected to drop back into the 70s and then 60s on Wednesday evening.

Overnight lows will be in the upper 40s and 50s.

"It’ll be refreshingly cool when you step out the door in the morning," DePrest said.

We will enjoy ideal September weather on Thursday, Friday and Saturday. DePrest said the nights will be clear and cool, and the days will be sunny and comfortably warm.

Highs for Thursday and Friday should reach the mid-70s.
