Fairfield forecast: Heat wave cooking up more storms
Thunderstorms that rattled through southwestern Connecticut early this morning failed to break the heat wave, and the National Weather Service says more hot and humid weather -- and possibly severe storms -- are in store today.
The threat of storms -- some with lightning and heavy rain -- is greatest after 1 p.m., the NWS says. Otherwise, skies will be hazy with the daytime high temperature rising to the low 90s.
Showers and thunderstorms remain a possibility overnight. Skies will be cloudy with the temperature falling to a low of about 67 degrees.
Tomorrow should be cooler, the NWS says, with a high of about 80 degrees. But there is also a chance of showers, with thunderstorms also possible, after 2 p.m. Unsettled weather is also possible tomorrow night, when the temperature is expected to fall to about 60 degrees.
The forecast for the weekend remains fairly uninviting: Showers and thunderstorms are possible both days, with cloudy skies and temperatures in the 70s.
