The National Weather Service confirmed on Saturday afternoon that a tornado touched down in Woodstock.

Officials from the National Weather Service determined from initial estimates that a tornado traveled on a path length of one block with a width of 8 yards.

Officials said the tornado's path resulted in damage to two corn fields and an oak tree that was split in half.

The tornado in Woodstock marks the fifth tornado to touch down this year in Connecticut.

In May, tornadoes went through Hamden Beacon Falls and Winsted.

In July, a tornado touched down in a section of Ashford.

Earlier on Saturday afternoon, the National Weather Service in Boston said a tornado touched down near the southern border of Massachusetts in Webster.

Officials said it will take some time to determine the strength and path-length of the tornado, as the extent of damage is greater than in Woodstock.

Reports of storm damage in Woodstock were centralized by Route 198 near the Massachusetts border.

Additionally, the National Weather Service will be conducting damage surveys from Dudley to Webster in Massachusetts.

Sunday will be a quiet day.

The forecast called for highs between 90 and 95 degrees inland and along the shoreline, the mercury thermometer will peak in the upper 80s.

The humidity may drop off a little, but not much.

The hot weather is expected to continue into the first half of next week.

Monday could be the hottest day of the week with temperatures soaring into the middle 90s.

Tuesday could feature a few showers and storms later in the day.

Wednesday could bring a few more showers and thunderstorms and highs will be in the lower 90s.

Thursday is expected to be dry as a front moves through southern New England.

Friday will be pleasant dry and warm as a high-pressure system settles overhead.

Saturday could feature showers and thunderstorms in the afternoon.
