FORECAST: Isolated severe storms possible Sunday afternoon and evening

Brisk and cool today; increasing clouds, chance for a few scattered showers late Sunday.

CONNECTICUT, USA — Tonight will be clear to partly cloudy. It will be cool, but not as chilly as the last couple of nights, with low temperatures in the 40s inland, low 50s at the shore.

Sunday will start with a little sun, but clouds will be increasing through the morning as a warm front approaches.

As this front moves in, scattered showers and storms are possible in the afternoon and evening. Sometimes these fronts can add a little extra shear or spin to the atmosphere, so an isolated severe storm or two is possible. The main timeframe is between 3 p.m. and 10 p.m. 

Widespread severe weather is not expected, but an isolated storm with gusty winds or even a small tornado is possible. The Storm Prediction Center has placed all of Connecticut in a level one (marginal) risk for severe weather, with a small tornado risk.

If you have outdoor plans Sunday evening, have a "plan B" to bring it inside in case a storm approaches. 

Monday and Tuesday both look like decent days with a partly to mostly sunny sky, high temperatures in the lower 70s.

It will turn cooler for the middle and end of the week, but likely remain dry. A ridge of high pressure will be building overhead from Wednesday through Friday, while what is likely to be Hurricane Ian impacts either the Gulf Coast or Florida. It's possible some of its moisture moves up the east coast next weekend, but there is a high level of uncertainty to so far out.
