A heavy thundershower was causing flash flooding around the Hartford area as of 4 p.m. Tuesday.
An approaching trough is causing a line of rain with a few embedded thundershowers to move from west to east across the state. No severe thunderstorms are expected, but locally heavy rainfall over an already saturated ground could lead to localized flooding.
A Flood Advisory is in effect for southern Hartford County until 4:30 p.m.
Social media reports indicated flash flooding was occurring along portions of Route 2 between Glastonbury and Hartford.
Showers with a few rumbles of thunder will continue into the evening hours. Rain will quickly taper off by 8 p.m. with just a few possible sprinkles or a stray shower overnight.
The forecast for Wednesday remains dry.
