NWS: Strong thunderstorms possible in Conn. late Wednesday

September 27, 2018

BRIDGEPORT — A few strong and severe thunderstorms are possible with a line of thunderstorms approaching the region Wednesday evening.

These potential storms come on the heels of a storm Tuesday that left a lot of towns and cities along the state’s coastline flooded and still recovering Wednesday.

The threat of thunderstorms is across northeastern New Jersey, lower Hudson Valley in New York and interior southwestern Connecticut. The line of storms is expected to push through the region between 7 p.m. and 10 p.m.

The line of thunderstorms might weaken as it works toward the New York City metro area between 9 p.m. and 11 p.m., which would diminish the threat for severe weather.

Strong and damaging wind gusts are possible with Wednesday’s possible storms, which could lead to some tree limbs, trees or power lines coming down. It could also cause some structural damage.

There is an isolated tornado threat across the lower Hudson Valley and interior southwestern Connecticut.

Flooding is possible as the line of storms moves through the region, with a chance of flash flooding across northeastern New Jersey and southern Connecticut, since they saw several inches of rain Tuesday.
