Warm temps kick off workweek for Connecticut; chance of thunderstorm Tuesday
NOW: Nice weather overnight. Clear. Really comfortable north. Temps tonight are seasonable, if not a couple of degrees cooler.
NEXT: The heat is back! CT should see upper 80s and some 90s (away from Sound). Strong to severe storms maybe Tuesday night. Depends still on timing of front. Could be later, after sunset timing and this would help keep severe threat down a touch. If anything pops sooner, could be strong/severe. SPC has slight risk for part of the tri-state area. Front may linger nearby for end of the week - so this part of the forecast may change. Keeping end of week dry for now - with HEAT and storms next weekend, but some uncertainty in timing.
