Tropical storm Fay is leaving behind plenty of humidity for Saturday evening and the chance for thunderstorms. Overall, we've seen very warm temperatures and dew point numbers near or above 70 degrees (that is oppressive) for Saturday, but are now watching lines of storms moving east from New York that could bring severe weather to Connecticut this evening.
The energy for a system left behind Fay will fire off showers and storms through New York state. Some of those storms are working their way east. The storms could be strong to severe.
The best chance of the storms will be in western Connecticut into the 91 corridor. We do expect any storms working east to begin to weaken. The best time-frame for the storms will be after 7:30 p.m.
Some good news on the humidity, somewhat less humid air will work in for the second half of the weekend.
