Heavy rains are in our forecast for the next few days, and into the early part of the weekend.

The National Weather Service has issued a hazardous weather outlook for most of Connecticut starting today (Wednesday) and continuing through the early part of Saturday.

Look for afternoon thunderstorms to pop up that could trigger some heavy rain and wind gusts both Wednesday and Thursday, then as a low pressure system heads our way on Friday, look for the potential for flooding rainfall through early Saturday.

High pressure will be in control for the next day or so, and that means the heat is on, and when things heat up, expect the possibility for strong thunderstorms, especially late in the day.

Right now it's still uncertain where the heaviest rains may fall, or where the potential for flooding may occur as the track of the low pressure system is still changing.

Here's the official National Weather Service Forecast for the rest of the week, and into the weekend.

  • Wednesday- Becoming mostly sunny, but not before a possible scattered shower or thundershower highs reaching the mid 80's
  • Thursday- Mostly Cloudy with less of a chance for severe weather highs in the upper 80's.
  • Friday- Cloudy with an increased chance of showers and thunderstorms after 2 PM. Some of the thunderstorms could produce heavy rain, highs will be in the mid 80's.
  • Saturday- Look for showers and thunderstorms on and off all during the day, some storms could produce some heavy rainfall, highs will reach the mid to upper 80's.
