HARTFORD, CT (WFSB) - Thunderstorms have moved out of the state Monday night. 

The storms brought heavy rain and wind in parts of the state during the afternoon and evening hours. 

There were reports of downed trees and wires in several towns. 

"Thunderstorms that developed in advance of a cold front in northeastern CT have produced some very heavy rain, gusty wind, and frequent lighting," said Meteorologist Mark Dixon.

The Storm Prediction Center out of Norman, OK placed the eastern half of Connecticut in its "marginal risk" category for strong to severe storms.

Storms have now fizzled out. 

"Overnight, expect a clear to partly cloudy sky," Dixon said. "In towns were heavy rain was received, areas of fog could develop."

Tuesday looks to be partly to mostly sunny and warm with highs in the mid-80s.

The humidity should drop off a little.

"With colder air aloft, in tandem with the daytime heating… isolated to widely scattered showers (perhaps a thunderstorm) develop during the afternoon hours," Dixon said.

High pressure will then build into the region. 

"This means we can anticipate dry weather for Wednesday and Thursday," Dixon said. "Both days should be partly to mostly sunny and pleasant."
