HARTFORD, CT (WFSB) – As the state geared up for another hot day, the smoky sky still lingered from the western wildfires.

An Air Quality Alert was in place for most of the state Tuesday.

Additionally, storms are expected overnight into Wednesday.

A severe thunderstorm warning was also in effect for northern Connecticut for the majority of the evening.

Because of that, Channel 3 launched an Early Warning Weather Alert.

Lingering showers associated with a cold front are expected to taper off.

A brief shower is possible Wednesday. We'll also see temperatures drop by about ten degrees.

Another cold front moves into New England on Thursday, prompting another chance for showers and thunderstorms, especially during the afternoon.

Temperatures remain below average until the weekend.

The week ends on a pleasant note with the coolest weather over the next seven days coming late Friday night.

There's a chance for more showers and storms on Sunday.
