HARTFORD, CT (WFSB) – The first full day of summer will be hot, humid and include the possibility of showers and thunderstorms.
Meteorologist Lorin Richardson said that while Connecticut will be largely untouched by what is now Tropical Storm Claudette, some of the moisture from it will end up in the state.
“Due to this humidity, we will feel too humid at certain times of the day. [Monday]”Richardson said.” It will be hot and humid, in the 90s inland and in the 80s along the shore. “
A marginal risk of severe storms occurs during the evening hours, and even in the northwest corner of the state. They will be the result of a cold front.
“From 6 pm to 9 pm, we can expect isolated showers and storms to pass through our state from the west and separate as they head toward I-91,” Richardson said.
After this period, western Connecticut will experience cloudy conditions.
Occasional showers are possible overnight.
Temperatures are expected to be mild in the 60s and 70s.
Fog could be a problem for Tuesday morning.
A few scattered showers and isolated thunderstorms are again possible on Tuesday.
“The high pressure comes back on Wednesday and Thursday and the humidity is dropping,” Richardson said. “It will be much more comfortable and we will see abundant sunshine.”
