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.
