Severe thunderstorms possible on Tuesday

Severe thunderstorms could be headed to Connecticut on Tuesday.

The National Weather Service issued a hazardous weather outlook for Fairfield, New Haven and New London counties on Tuesday afternoon.

“There is a low probability for widespread hazardous weather meeting NWS warning criteria Tuesday afternoon, as an approaching cold front triggers a few thunderstorms,” the NWS said in its advisory.

The strongest of these storms could produce “brief strong winds and hail,” the NWS said.
