    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.
