HARTFORD, CT (WFSB) – Summer weather returned on Wednesday.
Meteorologist Mark Dixon said strong to severe storms moved across the northern half of the state between 6 p.m. and 10 p.m., producing lighting, heavy rain and gusty winds.
“By 2am from the end of the 26th day of the month, with isolated showers / storms possible over the next few hours, the severe threat across CT has diminished,” Dixon said.
Temperatures across the state hit the ’80s on Wednesday. The humidity has also increased.
A cold front clears Connecticut in the hours before dawn and when that happens it begins to filter the drier air in the state.
Thursday appears to start with some cloud cover, but the skies should become mostly sunny.
Temperatures are expected to peak between the low and mid-1980s.
The air mass will be comfortable behind the cold front as drier air seeps into the state in northwesterly winds.
The week could end with rain at the end of the day on Friday.
Beneficial rain becomes likely by the Friday evening drive.
Memorial Day weekend seems a little choppy.
Dixon said it would be cooler, with a few isolated showers lingering on Saturday.
