After a torrential downpour Monday, it looks like we'll get some sun on Tuesday and Wednesday, according to the National Weather Service. But enjoy it while it lasts, because we may get some more rain later this week.
A severe thunderstorm watch is in effect until 10 p.m. Monday for Clinton, Guilford, Madison, and all of Middlesex and New Haven counties.
Other counties affected by the severe thunderstorm watch include Hartford, New London, Tolland, and Fairfield.
Litchfield County is under a tornado watch as of Monday afternoon until 5 p.m., according to the National Weather Service. Western Massachusetts and southern Vermont are affected by the tornado watch as well. A tornado watch means conditions are favorable for the development of severe thunderstorms that are capable of producing tornados.
In Madison and Clinton, the National Weather Service says, "a strong cold front will move across the region [Monday] evening. The main weather hazard will be moderately strong winds ahead of the front. Winds of 15 to 25 mph with gusts of 35 to 40 mph are expected to develop this afternoon. With a full canopy, these winds have the potential to down small branches of weak trees and lead to isolated power outages."
