Scattered Storms Possible Saturday

NBC Connecticut meteorologist Tyler Jankoski breaks down the threat for storms Saturday afternoon. (Published Thursday, Aug. 13, 2015)

Dry, comfortable weather is in place and here to stay through tomorrow!

An upper-level low passing by to the north will spark off showers in Vermont, New Hampshire and Maine but for Connecticut it just means a handful of clouds.

Sunshine and a few puffy cumulus clouds will be the story today with temperatures in the lower-80s.

Tomorrow is another weather winner with lots of sunshine, temperatures in the middle-80s and no humidity.

The next chance of active weather arrives Saturday, but it won’t be a washout.

A cold front diving south out of Canada will spark off scattered showers and thunderstorms in the afternoon and evening Saturday. The humidity will be noticeable with temperatures in the upper-80s.

Most of the activity will likely be north and west of Connecticut, so northwestern areas of the state stand the best chance of getting wet. Any storms have the potential to produce downpours and lightning, but the severe threat is very low.

The front washes out and doesn’t drop the temperatures much but it does get rid of any sign of humidity. Sunday will be hot with lots of sun and temperatures in the lower-90s.

Temperatures continue to climb on Monday as a Bermuda high-pressure system sets up and pumps in the heat from the south. Lower- to middle-90s are in the cards and it will still be dry with lots of sunshine.

Tuesday could make the stretch an official heat wave with a third 90 degree day. Showers and thunderstorms are possible as a cold front approaches.

The humidity ramps up on Wednesday and with the cold front still in the vicinity, more showers and thunderstorms are possible.
