Isolated Thunderstorm Possible Later Today

(Published Thursday, Sept. 3, 2015)

The large ridge of high pressure that has dominated our weather this week will maintain control through Labor Day Weekend.

A backdoor cold front slipping south from northern New England could spark off isolated showers and thunderstorms late this afternoon and early this evening. A handful of towns will be impacted but most will stay dry. The severe threat is very low.

UConn Football has its home opener at 7:30 p.m., and it will be very warm for football.

Temperatures will be in the middle-80s for kickoff at Pratt & Whitney Stadium at Rentschler Field. It will be very humid.

Behind the cold front that comes through this evening, all signs of humidity will be erased!

Some schools let students out early Thursday because of another hot day.

Tomorrow features morning clouds and perhaps some drizzle, before the clouds melt away and sunshine dominates by the afternoon hours. It will certainly be less hot and far more comfortable as the humidity will be gone. Temperatures will struggle to reach 80 degrees.

Saturday, Sunday and Monday all feature unlimited sunshine with no humidity. While the weather typically dries out in the fall, this is still an exceptional stretch of weather.

Not a drop of rain or even hint of humidity are expected for the Woodstock Fair, which kicks off Friday and goes through Monday. Stop by and see First Alert 1 at the fair on Friday!

Temperatures will be in the 80s Saturday, but soar into the lower-90s for Sunday and Monday. The key to the forecast, though, is that humidity will stay away despite the high heat!

By the middle part of next week, the dry weather comes to an end as dips start to show up in the jet stream overhead. A cold front could bring showers and thunderstorms on Wednesday and Thursday.

The weekend is looking sunny and cloudless. Temperatures will pick up again over the weekend.
