Friday Afternoon Weather: Scattered Downpours Overnight

This is an archived article and the information in the article may be outdated. Please look at the time stamp on the story to see when it was last updated.

A flash flood watch is in effect for Litchfield County until midnight. Scattered showers and downpours tonight will bring locally up to 1”-3”, while other towns could see little or no rain.

While we honor our fallen servicemen and women Memorial Day weekend, a lot of people also consider this the unofficial start of summer.  If so, this “summer” is getting off to a slow start. Saturday begins cloudy with lingering drizzle in spots. Some sun will break through. But that will only help boost instability, triggering a few scattered showers/thunderstorms. Sunday will be brighter and less unstable with a smaller chance for an afternoon storm. Monday looks the best: warm, dry and sunny!
