Saturday afternoon won't feel like a usual summer's day.
NBC Connecticut's meteorologists have declared today a First Alert Weather Day as the increased heat and humidity combines with an approaching cold front from the west.
The primary time to be concerned about is noon until about 6 p.m., as storms could develop.
Damaging winds and localized flooding are the biggest concern, according to our meteorologists, from brief but very heavy rain in the afternoon.
After the rain passes, the humidity is expected to drop in the evening.
Sunday through Tuesday looks like sunny, warm and less humid.
