Showers moved across southern New England Thursday evening and some strong storms moved in overnight.
All this instability is due to a warm front approaching the region. Non-severe storms have and will continue to push through southern New England, but at this time, we're seeing the window narrow for severe storms.
The threat will be as early as 10 p.m. near New Haven, Connecticut, then slowly march east through southern Connecticut at 11 p.m., continuing east through southern Rhode Island around midnight and Cape Cod around 1 a.m.
We still have a chance for a low-grade tornado to spin up — or even a waterspout — but the chances remain small. Already, a tornado touched down near Trenton, New Jersey. This is the same storm system that will affect New England.
This unsettled weather is expected to exit the region early Friday morning to give way to a pleasant end to the work week with windy conditions.
Clear skies will reign into Saturday afternoon, with temperatures nearing 80. For Sunday, we expect the threat for showers in the afternoon and possibly overnight as another frontal system moves in.
The good news is that we're looking forward to a dry start to next week before we enter an unsettled weather pattern by midweek.
