Our team of meteorologists has issued a first warning of a weather situation that could bring severe storms to the state on Monday.
For now it appears that any storms that form will have enough instability to become severe. The biggest concern with the storms is damaging wind gusts. Some of the latest guidance suggests that a sufficient vortex in the atmosphere could create a tornado somewhere between New York and southern New England.
Storms appear to be developing late Monday morning, with the worst weather expected Monday afternoon and Monday evening.
The storms will be relatively scattered in nature and in the area of highest risk for severe weather in western Connecticut.
In addition to damaging wind gusts, isolated heavy downpours could cause flash flood problems.
After the warm front, a heat wave begins Tuesday, with temperatures expected to remain in the 90s through next weekend.
