Showers, thunder could accompany cold front this afternoon

Posted: Updated:

A change is coming.

Meteorologists Mark Dixon and Scot Haney said Thursday is a transition day as a weak storm will move through southern New England.

"It's associated cold front will pass through Connecticut during the afternoon," Haney said. "The front will come through with a period of clouds and showers, perhaps even a rumble of thunder in some towns."

As of the noon hour, the showers were scattered throughout the state.

Track any storms that pop up with Early Warning Pinpoint Doppler here.

"They'll continue through the afternoon but exit by or around the evening commute as the front pushes through the state," Dixon said.

Before the front leaves, temperatures should reach the mid-60s.

That, however, depends on how much cloud cover the state sees.

"Perhaps the best shot at 70 degrees or higher will be in southern portions of the state where the front will take a little longer to move through," Haney said.

Any showers that do develop will end by Thursday night.

Temps will dip into the 40s and there will be a brisk northwesterly breeze.

The sky will also become clear to partly cloudy.

"Friday will be seasonably cool with highs in the 50s and a brisk northwesterly wind could gust to 30 mph or higher," Haney said. "It’ll be a nice looking day with sky conditions varying from partly to mostly sunny.

The first weekend of November looks pretty good, according to Haney.
