Severe weather threat to our west Friday with chance for an isolated storm after 9PM

Turning brighter and less humid this weekend.

It's another very humid day. 

It's so humid that a shower could pop up at any time. If you've ever spent time in Florida, picture that!

There is a risk for severe weather to our west today. But those storms will tend to weaken as they move into Connecticut after dark.

Still there is a chance for showers and even an isolated thunderstorm later tonight after 9 PM through about midnight.

Saturday's forecast looks better and better. After a gray start to the morning, clouds will break for sunshine. The humidity will start to drop as well. Temperatures will warm up to near 80 degrees.

The humidity will completely fade by Sunday paving the way for a refreshing and cooler air-mass heading into next week. So we have a summer-like Saturday followed by a spring Sunday. Take your pick!
