A series of severe storms moved through parts of the state on Sunday evening, just hours after a confirmed tornado touched down in Wolcott and caused significant damage in Enfield.

The storms came down from Massachusetts and moved into Enfield, Suffield and then headed southeast around 7 p.m.

In Enfield, a microburst caused damage on Taylor Road, according to police, and brought down branches and wires. 

A tree also came down onto a home on Crescent Beach Drive and the house has been deemed uninhabitable.

Lightning struck a home on Prospect Avenue, causing a fire.

The storms brought heavy wind and hail to the eastern part of the state. Hail was reported in Ellington and Vernon.

Connecticut Light & Power reported more than 9,300 customers without power during the height of the storms.

Connecticut could see another round of severe weather on Monday.

Heavy rain from thunderstorms brought flooding to parts of western and central Connecticut, and flash flood warnings issued for Middlesex and New Haven counties were extended until 12:30 a.m.

Flash flood watches are also in effect for parts of the state as heavy rain moves in from the west. Shortly after 10 p.m., the National Weather Service canceled a flash flood warning for Fairfield County.

More than 2 inches of rain has already fallen in southern Fairfield County and more is on the way, according to Meteorologist Ryan Hanrahan.

Widespread flooding has also been reported in Westport, particularly around Bridge Street and Compo Road, Imperial Avenue and Main and Canal streets, where flooding is common, according to police.

Stamford police said Elm Street and South State Street are flooded in the city. Firefighters said at least one car has been stranded in high waters near the Interstate 95 overpass on Elm Street. They're cautioning drivers to avoid East Main Street, which is also prone to flooding.

The New Haven Fire Department tweeted that a car is stuck in flood waters at River and Poplar streets, and that the department has received multiple calls for flooded buildings and streets.

I-95 is flooded near exit 45 in New Haven, and flood waters damaged Union Avenue right outside the train station.

The Fairfield Police Department also took to Twitter to report downed wires on Round Hill Road, which is closed between Papermill and Barlow roads after storms swept through.

Severe thunderstorm watches for southwestern Connecticut expired at 8 p.m. but strong storms are expected to return again tomorow, and a First Alert Weather Day has been declared for Tuesday.

Periods of very heavy rain are possible tonight, and thunderstorms will likely bring vivid and dangerous lightning, torrential rain and damaging winds to the state Tuesday and possibly Wednesday.

Parts of the state could receive up to 5 inches of rain by Wednesday.

Flash flood watches are in effect for Hartford, New Haven, New London, Middlesex, Litchfield and Fairfield counties until late Tuesday night.

Watches issued for Tolland and Windham counties will last through Wednesday afternoon.

We'll see some relief from the storms when drier arrives by Wednesday night.

The last of Wednesday night's thunderstorms is moving out and once again leaving downed trees and power lines in its wake, and lightning even sparked a shed fire in Shelton.

Severe thunderstorm warnings and watches issued for the western and central parts of the state expired by 10 p.m. as storms weakened and moved to the north.

But the storms made their mark. Trees and limbs are down around in Fairfield, Litchfield and New Haven counties.

Ridgefield Road in Wilton and West Prospect Street in New Haven are blocked off while crews work to clear fallen trees. A tree also blocked off Toddy Road in Sandy Hook earlier tonight.

More than 1,100 homes are without power in Cornwall, according to the Connecticut Light & Power outage map.

A shed on High Ridge Road in Shelton caught fire after being struck by lightning, and a neighbor was reportedly shocked while holding onto a metal garage railing.

It's the third night in a series of severe storms that brought down trees and power lines in western Connecticut earlier this week.

Severe thunderstorm warnings were  issued for northern Fairfield County until 11:15 p.m. and Litchfield County until 11:45 p.m. Tuesday night.

Severe thunderstorm watches were in effect for Fairfield, New Haven, Hartford, Tolland and Litchfield counties until midnight.

A strong line of storms moved west toward Connecticut, accompanied by high temperatures and thick humidity.

The storms were capable of producing damaging winds of up to 60 mph, but were expected to weaken as they moved into the state, according to Chief Meteorologist Brad Field.

Storms arrived at the western border just before 10:30 p.m. and were expected to reach the Hartford area by about 11 p.m. Skies will begin to clear toward daybreak, Field said.

We could see a pop-up shower tomorrow afternoon, then the humidity will drop and the rest of the week will be beautiful.

Severe thunderstorms moving through Connecticut brought down trees and wires in several Litchfield County towns and caused a lightning strike at a home in Warren, according to emergency officials.

Severe thunderstorm warnings were issued for Litchfield, Hartford, Tolland and Fairfield counties Wednesdayevening but have since expired.

Litchfield remained under a flash flood warning until 9:45 p.m., and severe thunderstorm watches were in effect statewide until 9 p.m. Flood advisories were also in effect around the state.

Wednesday afternoon and into the evening, thunderstorms pummeled parts of the state with heavy rain, vivid lightning and strong, gusty winds of up to 60 mph.

Hundreds of lightning strikes were reported across Litchfield County and New York, some of which struck trees and even houses, like in Warren.

Police said a tree came down on Route 189 in Granby while the storm was moving through, falling onto overhead wires and causing more than 700 power outages in the neighborhood. The road was closed for about an hour while crews responded to the scene.

Emergency officials have also reported trees and wires down in Enfield, Winsted, Sharon, Torrington and Barkhamsted due to strong winds and stormy conditions.

Water in the roadway caused a hole to form in the pavement on Main Street in Torrington, which firefighters say has happened before. According to fire officials, rushing water from heavy rain may have popped off a manhole cover.

Residents were advised to stay indoors and away from windows at the height of the storm.

We're also tracking Tropical Storm Arthur, which is moving up the East Coast and could contribute to heavy rain here in Connecticut on Thursday and the Fourth of July.

As of 8 p.m. Wednesday, Arthur was just below hurricane strength. It's expected to become a category 1 hurricane sometime Wednesday night.

Today's severe weather and the threat of more rain have prompted several towns to postpone fireworks displays.

Fortunately, rain is expected to move out as the day progresses on Friday, leaving the second part of the holiday weekend dominated by nice weather.

Heavy rains and thunderstorms hit the state on Thursday and are contributing to a rainy 4th of July holiday.

 Severe thundestorm warnings were in effect for Fairfield, New Haven, Middlesex, Windham and Hartford counties early in the evening on Thursday, and Hurricane Arthur intensified to a category 2 hurricane as it heads toward the North Carolina coast.

A flood watch is in effect Friday until 11 p.m. for Hartford, Tolland and Windham counties, according to the National Weather Service.

On Thursday, flash flood warnings were issued Thursday for Litchfield, Fairfield and Hartford counties, the National Weather Service reported.

The storm moved in from New York bringing heavy rain, intense lightning, damaging winds and hail on Thursday.

There was a tremendous Thursday amount of lightning all the way from the Massachusetts border to New York City. The storm is heading east along Route 8 toward Interstate 91.

Nearly 20,000 customers were without power at the height of the storms, according to the Connecticut Light & Power outage map.

Berlin police reported trees and wires down across town, particularly in the Worthington Ridge area, and Southington police said they dealth with numerous accidents on Thursday evening, some of which may be weather related.

Hebron Avenue is closed Friday morning due to a tree down on power lines, according to State Police. More information will be provided when it becomes available.

Route 21 reopened Friday after closing overnight, but there are several trees down in the area so police said to be cautious if you choose to drive on that route.

We're still expecting indirect impacts from Hurricane Arthur, but the storm has moved closer to Cape Cod than the National Hurricane Center originally predicted and the area is under a tropical storm warning.

Arthur was upgraded to a category 2 hurricane around 9 p.m. Thursday and could reach maximum wind speeds of up to 100 mph.

As some of the moisture from Hurricane Arthur streams north Thursday and Friday, periods of rain and thunderstorms could cause flooding. It has been very dry lately and rivers are running below normal in many locations, which is expected to mitigate the flood threat.

The state Division of Emergency Management and Homeland Security is monitoring the hurricane and keeping tabs on potential indirect impacts to Connecticut, according to a news release from Gov. Dannel Malloy's office.

The forecast has prompted some towns to postpone fireworks.

The town of Old Saybrook prepared ahead of time by launching StormArthur.com to keep residents up to date on the storm's developments.

More information about the state's response to Arthur can be found online.

Anyone who loses power during the storms should call Connecticut Light & Power at 1-800-286-2000.

The best news is that the rain is expected to move out late Friday, leaving the second part of the holiday weekend dominated by beautiful sunny weather Saturday and Sunday.

Scattered thunderstorms are expected to move in overnight, especially to the north and west of Hartford, and could cause moderate flooding and minor wind damage, according to Chief Meteorologist Brad Field.

A band of storms moving northeast from Pennyslvania will bring on-and-off thunderstorms with some heavier downpours of rain, vivid lightning and brief gusty winds.

While storms are possible anywhere in the state, most activity will concentrated in the northwest, in Litchfield County. A flash flood watch is in effect for Litchfield County until 6 a.m. Thursday.

On-and-off thunderstorms are likely throughout the night with some heavier downpours of rain, vivid lightning and briefly gusty winds.

While severe weather is not expected, these storms could wake up residents and bring down a few tree limbs. Some minor, urban street flooding is possible as well.

Thursday will feature a few scattered storms and showers in the morning, but nothing severe is expected.

We'll continue to see high humidity overnight and into tomorrow.

A second round of heavy rain moved into Connecticut on Friday night with some thunder and lightning with it.

Earlier in the day, emergency crews had to close streets and respond to stranded cars during flooding in New Haven on Friday afternoon.

Union Avenue looked like a river until the water receded.

The New Haven Fire Department had to tow a car that was in water on the Interstate 95 overpass at Boulevard and Kimberly.

The road is closed at Whitney Avenue and Grove Street in New Haven after a tree came down and crews are working taking care of it.
