Heat Continues, Storms Monday PM

A broken line of showers and thunder originating in New York will approach this evening. A few towns could see a brief shower, mainly in western Connecticut. But most locations will stay dry tonight with partly cloudy skies and temperatures dropping into the low and middle 60s.

Monday will start off sunny and mild with temperatures soaring into the 80s to near 90 degrees. An approaching cold front will trigger scattered showers and thunderstorms in the afternoon and evening (2pm-5pm). Any storm that develops could be strong or severe with large hail, lightning and damaging winds. The Storm Prediction Center has outlined a slight risk of severe weather for our area.
The front will usher in less humid air for Tuesday with plenty of sunshine. Showers and clouds are likely Wednesday with a disturbance spinning through. Thursday and Friday look dry and pleasant!

Frizz factor: 7 tomorrow, eh. But only for one day! Good hair days return Tuesday which scores a pleasant 3 on the FF.
