HARTFORD, CT (WFSB) - On and off showers with occasional downpours will continue throughout Thursday afternoon and evening.

Meteorologist Mark Dixon said periods of rain will continue into the night.

"Though we aren't expecting any severe weather in CT, a few embedded thunderstorms are possible," he said.

Most of the rain ends by midnight.

Total rainfall should range from half an inch to 1 inch, with perhaps some locally higher amounts.

A cold front pushes through the region on Friday, and the wind will pick up.

"Tomorrow [Friday], the sun returns and so does the wind," Dixon said.

Northwesterly winds will gust at times 30+mph tomorrow afternoon.

The first weekend of May kicks off on a decent note, weatherwise.

"As a cold front slides through CT Friday night into early Saturday, a snow shower or two may be possible too," Dixon said.

Saturday will be blustery and cool with highs in the lower 60s. Sunday will be less windy and milder.
