After dealing with the second heat wave of the season, Connecticut residents have to be ready for rapidly changing weather conditions for the week.
An increasing volatile weather pattern is evolving here in the northeast with strong thunderstorms a possibility almost every day.
An upper-level area of low pressure will develop just to our west and supply a super moisture laden air mass over the region with any storms that fire up producing torrential rains and flooding. Unlike some weather patterns this time of year, this one will become stuck in place and that keeps us unsettled for several days.
Any thunderstorms in your town will produce heavy rain, vivid lightning, damaging winds, hail and possibly even a small tornado.
A flash flood watch has been issued for parts of the state ahead of the expected rain.
Severe thunderstorms will be a possibility with localized small hail, gusty winds and lightning. With already-saturated soil and high flows on rivers, the threat for flooding will be high as well.
The severe weather and flood threat might linger through early next week.
