Rain Moves Through State

Rain is moving west to east across the state and will fall heavily at times late this evening and especially as midnight nears.

It will end before sunrise on Friday.

Flash flood watches were issued earlier for southern Connecticut but have since been canceled.

Rain totals for many locations could surpass half an inch, but more than that is certainly possible in the heaviest cells.

Flash flooding is a medium threat tonight, especially in areas that experienced heavy rain in recent days. Danbury, for example, has already seen more than three inches of rain this week.

High pressure finally builds in tomorrow and sticks around for the entire weekend, providing tons of sunshine. Humidity levels look exceptionally low, once again, for the time of year.

Friday and Saturday will both feature temperatures in the middle- and upper-80s, while some of the state will touch 90 degrees on Sunday for the first time this summer. So far this year, only two 90 degree days have occurred at Bradley International and both were in May.

Next week dips in the jet stream resulting in a very unsettled pattern that doesn’t look pleasant at all.

Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday will probably have more clouds than sun and the chance for showers. Thunderstorms are also a possibility.
