A Severe Thunderstorm Watch is in effect for all of Connecticut through 9 p.m.

Isolated showers and thunderstorms are firing early this afternoon in southwestern Connecticut. A few more pop-up showers and storms are possible, but another line of thunderstorms is possible later this afternoon into the early evening hours.

Forecast:
This afternoon: Isolated showers and thunderstorms, more numerous after 4 p.m.
This evening: Scattered showers and storms, mainly before midnight. Patchy fog. 

Discussion:
A warm, moist and unstable atmosphere is allowing for some thunderstorms to develop across a trough in portions of the lower Hudson Valley and southwestern Connecticut. A more organized line of storms in central New York is advancing southeast ahead of a cold front. As daytime heating continues and wind shear aloft remains moderate, thunderstorms could become strong to severe in Connecticut this afternoon.
A more organized line of storms is possible between 4 and 8 p.m. There is some question as to how far south the storms can hold together, so northern Connecticut is favored for the strongest storms. Damaging winds are the main threat, but a few storms could produce hail. The tornado threat is relatively low, but a brief spin-up cannot be entirely ruled out.
