Severe Thunderstorms Forecast for Today

National Weather Service: Heavy rains, hail, tornadoes possible.

 

Severe thunderstorms are forecast for today as part of a hazardous weather outlook issued by the National Weather Service for the region, including southern Connecticut.

There is moderate risk for severe thunderstorms this afternoon and evening, with damaging winds and heavy rain expected. Large hail is possible as well and an isolated tornado cannot be ruled out, according to the National Weather Service.

The unstable weather is being caused by a system moving in from the Great Lakes region. While a line of storms may move through the area later this morning, much of the stormy weather is expected to develop late afternoon, and continue into the evening, according to the NWS.
