Thunderstorms, Humidity Take Over Connecticut

SEarlier today, warnings were issued for Tolland, Litchfield and Windham counties as storms roll in.

The primary threats are heavy rain and lightning. There's a low, but not zero, risk for damaging winds or a tornado.

Dew points are well into the 70s, and that means the air is soupy.

Scattered showers and thunderstorms are expected through Sunday.

High temperatures will be in the middle 90s Friday, then in the lower 90s this weekend.

A stubborn front likely slips south by early next week, but it will still be in the area.

So while it won't be as hot or humid, an isolated storm is still in the forecast on Tuesday.

Temperatures will rise into the middle and upper 80s early next week.
