EARLY WARNING WEATHER ALERT: Heat wave expected to continue Wednesday | New

HARTFORD, CT (WFSB) – The first heat wave of the season for Connecticut went official on Monday and continued on Tuesday.

“At Bradley International Airport the maximum was 92 Saturday, 94 Sunday, 95 yesterday [Monday], and 92 degrees today [Tuesday]”said Chief Meteorologist Bruce DePrest.

Channel 3 declared an early weather alert for the heat.

With the heat wave came the threat of thunderstorms on Tuesday afternoon.

Some started appearing just before 1 p.m. and continued throughout the afternoon.

Some cities even received 1 to 2 inches of rain due to the slowly moving storms.

This triggered a flash flood watch for Hartford and Tolland counties until 10 p.m.

Showers are expected to recede during the evening.

More heat and humidity are expected for Wednesday, which could lead to a fifth day of heatwave.

Temperatures will reach the upper 80s and lower 90s inland, and the air will still be humid. Heat indices will likely reach the mid-90s, DePrest said.

There is another chance during the afternoon for patchy showers / thunderstorms.

A cold front will begin to bring relief across the state on Wednesday evening.

“Cooler, drier air will begin to invade the state (from north to south) and temperatures will drop into the low and mid 60s by the morning,” DePrest said.

Thursday will be partly sunny and warm in season, with significantly lower humidity.

The air will cool nicely on Thursday evening with temperatures dropping into the 1950s.

“It will be a much better night to sleep,” DePrest said.

Friday is shaping up to be dry right now, as a wave of low pressure moves from the mid-Atlantic coast to southern New England.

“We now expect a mix of cloud and sun, and highs in the mid-70s,” DePrest said.

Humidity levels will also be in the comfortable range.

Friday night will be nice and cool with lows in the 50s.

The weekend is shaping up to be good right now, with partly sunny skies on Saturday and Sunday, and peaks in the 70s.
