A stormy commute for some

NEW HAVEN, Conn. (WTNH) — The morning commute may be a rough and stormy one for many commuters as more storms work their way across Connecticut.

A Flash Flood Warning is in effect in the Northwest corner of the state, and a Flash Flood Watch remains in effect for most of the state. The Flash Flood Watch was lifted in parts of Southern Connecticut at 6 a.m.

Last night’s wave of storms brought thunder, lightning, and downpours to the state.

The incoming storm could slow down the commute for some, but Simmons expects the stormy weather to be done with by the afternoon.

“I think it picks up between now and 7-8 a.m., and by the afternoon kiss it goodbye, it’s on the way out.”

Connecticut Light & Power reported 230 outages as of 5 a.m. Most of the outages are in Clinton and Lebanon. United Illuminating reported no outages.
