HARTFORD, CT (WFSB) - The shoreline has seen some heavy rain so far on Tuesday.

Meteorologist Scot Haney said a storm system approached from the west, which meant rain continues to be likely.

"While certainly not a wash out, there are a few heavy downpours in parts of the state at this hour," Haney said. "If you're reading this for the southeast corner of Connecticut, you know exactly what i'm talking about."

Haney said the greatest risk for severe weather remained to the southwest of Connecticut.

"At one point [Monday], we thought the threat for some strong-to-severe storms would be present during the day [Tuesday], but that threat has diminished significantly which is great news," Haney said.

However, if a storm ventures northward into the state, it could produce gusty or damaging wind.

"Another concern will be the heavy nature of the rain that could lead to isolated nuisance, poor drainage flooding," Haney said.

Dew points may exceed 70 degrees, which would make the humidity oppressive.

"[Wednesday], outside of a lingering early morning shower, we should see partial clearing with highs near 80," Haney said.

Thursday and Friday should both feature a mix of sun and clouds.

Though most of the days will be dry, there's still a possibility for an isolated storm or shower.

Temperatures for the end of the week will be near or above 80 degrees.
